Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:14.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/14.0
Adobe Flash Player: 11,2,202,235

On imdb the videos that are using Flash opens differently (in the background or in the foreground) if clicking on the Full screen button or selecting the context  menu item Toggle Fullscreen. This behavior is not encounterd on Chrome where the flash player is opened in the foreground in both situations.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Navigate to http://www.imdb.com/
2. Click on the Play button for one video of your choice
3. Right click in the new opened pop up
4. From the context menu select Toggle Fullscreen
5. Click on the esc key
6. Click on the Full Screen button

Expected results:
In steps 4 and 6 - Flash player is opened in the foreground.

Actual results:
Flash is opened in the background in step 4 and in the foreground in step 6. The behavior should be consistent in both situations. 

Reproduced this issue on Windows 7 x86_64 and Windows 7 x86 using Firefox 14 beta 6.

Simona - have you performed this test previously and not been able to reproduce? I just want to understand whether this behavior started occurring recently, in which case we'd track (although the regression in from FF8).

Whenever I performed it, I could reproduce. I only performed it recently, hence I only discovered it recently.

Since we have no reason to believe this is a recent problem, we won't track for FF14's release.
