When firefox is running version 3.3.6 it causes many games to minimize to desktop,and wont go back to fullscreen. If i run the games without firefox running there ok so it seems like something is wrong with firefox thats taken over control. Maybe new update don't go well with aero.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== I got the new firefox update.

The problem seems to be happening mostly with nvidia cards, but I've read about some ppl with ati cards having the same issue as well.

I found that one of my games wouldn't open when Firefox was minimized so I made Firefox WINDOWED and the game worked in fullscreen. This may not work with all apps.
