Steps to reproduce:

I started to watch a video, full screen (zero punctuation if the kind of video matters).

Actual results:

Halfway through the video Nightly asked me kindly to update. This caused the video to turn invisible, while still running. The sound continued to play, and it half acted like it was still full screen, while I saw everything else as well. Clicking anywhere paused the video as if in full screen, and nothing could be done other than hitting escape a lot to get out of full screen, and then start the video again and go back into full screen.

Expected results:

Ask nicer :P. More seriously it should have either waited until the video was done, popped up in the background, or properly minimized (paused?) the video.
Severity: normal → minor
Flash or WebM/OGV Video?
Has the Content View Area been flickering between Content and the Update Window?
It is flash. And the edges of the screen flickered, but the video did not come back/flicker after the update popped up.
Severity: minor → S4
