    I have a similar little glitch in Firefox 18 as well; the fullscreen button doesn't seem to work, *unless* I right click on the full screen button and then immediately left click it again. Then about 60% of the time it seems to go to full screen.

    It can easily go back to Windowed mode though by pressing the same button, when it full screen though.

    I believe that this is an issue with the "target area" that the flash player uses.

    Chrome, however, uses native HTML5 for the player, not flash, so it would not be affected at all. I'm going to assume that IE as well, uses the flash player.

    okay - i might be answering my own question here as i found this info -> "Fullscreen: JavaScript can’t initiate Flash’s true fullscreen, and Firefox still has terrible Flash support (if you try to adjust the size of a Flash movie’s surrounding DOM nodes, Firefox reloads it!)" on the developer's site at this url -> http://johndyer.name/html5-video-wrapper-for-youtube-and-vimeo-api-mediaelement-js/

    what a pain ... i would of thought Firefox was better than that ... i mean, yes i would expect said bugginess from IE but i digress ...
