Flash video playback crashes one of my displays (flickering lines)
I am using a dual display setup. When I play back a Flash video in Firefox 18 one of my screens shows flickering lines and can only be reset by shutting down and restarting Windows.
If I move the Firefox window to the other screen and start playback the main screen still crashes but I can see the video itself playing fine on screen 2. So the Flash plugin didn't crash.
But it seems as if it had changed resolution and/or refresh rate to some strange value. So the picture of how the screen looks after the video playback began.
I did no recent changes to the graphics drivers but the problem started about 1-2 weeks ago.

You can check for problems caused by recent Flash updates and try these:
- disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
- disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
- disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
