How can I stop Flash from leaving full-screen mode when it loses focus due to a mouse-click in the other monitor?

How can I stop Flash from leaving full-screen mode when it loses focus due to a mouse-click in the other monitor?

On a multi-monitor system, if I'm viewing a full-screen video in Flash on one monitor, clicking the mouse on the other monitor causes Flash to leave full-screen mode and revert to normal size.

Install Flash Game Maximizer Firefox plugin addons.mozilladotorg/en-US/firefox/addon/9631, maximize your Firefox window and press F12.

"One of the comments in the linked bug report thread refers to this Youtube video (?!) giving the following instructions on how to hack the flash dll to workaround this.

NOTE: I know, this sounds like a REALLY BAD IDEA. I haven't tried this (my Flash dll is the wrong version), and it's quite possible that this may have nasty side effects such a introducing a security hole or breaking your system!

If nothing else, back up your dll before trying this.

That said, here's what the video says:

You need a hex editor and Flash player version 10.0.1.28 or 9.0.124.0 If you don't know what a hex editor is, cop out now.


Open NPSWF32.dll - it's usually at C:\Windows\system32\macromedia\flash\NPSWF32.dll
If you use Opera, it's probably at C:\Program Files\Opera\Program\Plugins\NPSWF32.dll
Go to this hex address: Version 10: 0x136340 Version 9: 0xC1487
If the number here is 74, change it to EB. If the number isn't 74, you've gone to
wrong address, or you've got the wrong version of Flash, so these instructions won't work for you.


Please post in the comments if this works for you.

No abuse though if this causes your computer to catch fire or your dog to explode!"
