Flash Plugin Half-Screen Dual Monitor

I have f17 with a dual monitor.

Every time I go full screen with You Tube vide,o the full screen (flash) window pops up but only the left half of the video is displayed on the right side of the left monitor.

It's like the full-screen flash window wants to display on both screens with half the video on each but it never displays on the right-hand monitor. I've used fedora since f13 and I've never seen this behavior before.

I've attached a screen shot below. Here are some details:

$ rpm -qa firefox google-chrome*
[thomas@power python]$ rpm -qa *chrome*

$ rpm -qa *flash*

$ lspci
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G92 [GeForce GTS 250] (rev a2)

If anyone can lend some insight I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

[SOLVED] Re: Flash Plugin Half-Screen Dual Monitor

Although I don't really understand the "why's" behind it...

That fixed the problem for both Firefox and Chrome; they both display the full screen flash video on the main monitor as expected (screen shot below).

Thanks brother.
