User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:11.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/11.0
Build ID: 20120310173008

Steps to reproduce:

1) Go to
2) select any stream (I tried one that was currently live), such as
3) There should be a Flash video streaming in the middle of the screen. 
4) Right-click on the current tab and select "Move to New Window".
5) In the new window, you are now unable to click on the Full screen button in the bottom right of the Flash video. If you right-click on the Flash video, the context menu appears in the wrong place.

Refreshing the page corrects it.  This problem does not occur with Firefox on Mac OS X or with Chrome on Windows.

The problem doesn't occur on all Flash videos - appears to be fine.

Tested with:
Adobe Flash Player
Firefox 11.0
Windows 7 SP1
Resolution: 1900x1200

Actual results:

After you move the Flash video, some of the buttons are unclickable.

Expected results:

You should be able to move the tab to a new window and all the buttons in the Flash video should be clickable.
