When I start a video on you tube to listen to and then open another tab to browse the internet...the video actually pops up on top of the screen and locks everything up. I can't click on the video to stop it. If I do try to click on the video parts of it try to disappear and I can see the internet page behind it. I eventually have to exit out of the browser totally and if that doesn't work I have to use ctl+alt+delete and shut it down manually. I have updated firefox, unistalled and reinstalled plug-ins, and I have uninstalled media players and reinstalled. Can u please help me??? thanks!

This can be a problem with the Firefox Flash plugin update to version 10.2 r152.

You can try to uninstall Flash and install the previous Flash 10.1 r102 version to see if that works.
