When I enter full screen for a game or video using Firefox the whole "screen" moves to the left, leaving a white space on the right side of my monitor, but the mouse still acts like the image is where it should be, why?

I have the latest Firefix update, and I am using Windows 7 Home Premium. It's annoying, specifically for games because I have to make sure the cursor is to the right (by a certain amount) of the item I wish to click. This issue is only in Firefox, I have tried in Internet Explorer *shudder* and there is no problem, I do not have any web browsers currently installed.

Chosen solution

Managing the Flash plugin

Check and tell if its working.

Done, and the issue is not resolved. I currently have no Firefox addons at all.

Create a New Profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

-> Basic Troubleshooting: Make a New Profile

-> If that New Profile works then you can recover your Bookmarks and Passwords from the Old Profile.

-> Recovering important data from an old profile

Check and tell if its working.

Still hasn't fixed it, I've included a screenshot, where the cog is next to fridge is the cursor, the fridge is the thing that has been selected, the movement out is what roughly the amount of white space on the right.

If I disable everything except Flash I still have the issue, I am unsure how to test if it is Flash that is the problem as most things that I am aware of that use fullscreen on the web are Flash applications, disabling Flash means I disable the applications too.

I have also made sure that it is up to date (Flash)

Solved MY many problems with FF6: Went back to IE9. They seem to have resolved their/mine problems :-)

BTW, anyway I can revert back to Mozilla 5 or whatever I had before the historic update??
