This is a problem I've had for as long as I can remember but I decided to seek some help because it's becoming progressively more annoying.

If I fullscreen a flash video from either firefox or chrome, and then click somewhere on a window in the second screen or alt+tab the flash video becomes unfullscreen'd. If I click on some "deadspace" on the desktop it stays fullscreened. This is independent of the site I'm using (youtube, gomtv.net, twitch.tv, nhl.com, etc.) or the browser. This is super annoying when I'm trying to do some work and stream something in the background. Playing a fullscreen video via mplayer or vlc does not exhibit this problem.

If it matters, my WM is fluxbox, I'm using www-plugins/adobe-flash-11.2.202.280 and x11-drivers/nvidia-drivers-319.17 and using a regular monitor and my television via HDMI, set up as "separate X screens" via nvidia-settings, but the problem persists when I use twinview, and I think I tried xinerama a long time ago to no avail as well. I have no idea if this is even a dual screen problem, but if I'm only using one screen and playing a fullscreen video I obviously have no need to use another window or alt+tab around.

Same problem here with firefox and fvwm. This look like to be implemented into the browser, because it append even if I use a direct link to the stream.

Also, it doesn't append if I bring a fvwm button on the top layer, but it append if I pop up a menu at the top. And yes, this is very annoying.

I find the solution, thanks to google. In about:config, set "full-screen-api.exit-on-deactivate" to false. This is more from than year they are aware of this: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=724554
