Since a few months ago, I've been having a problem with Flash objects in Firefox. They seem to only take up about a quarter of the space they are supposed to. And then, if I click on them in any way, say to control the video, they instantly go black. The audio continues, and in the case of video it still responds to the keyboard shortcuts for Flash video (eg. Spacebar for play/pause). But the video is totally gone. And nothing short of a refresh gets it back to visible.
I guess no BBCode, but here is a screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/q10ENly.jpg
The video and other flash things work perfectly in Safari. No problems there.
I know there is a common problem with Flash video not working properly, and I tried the fixes described there. I didn't have Real Player installed, so I just uninstalled and re-installed Flash and get the same thing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated it.

Try to "disable the hardware acceleration" in the Flash Player.
Flash "Display settings" window:
Try to clear the Flash local storage and settings.
Flash Website Storage Settings panel:
Global Storage Settings Panel:
I've pretty much tried everything but disabling the hardware acceleration in Firefox. When I right click on a flash object, the context menu comes up, but "settings" is greyed out and unclickable. I tried it on a YouTube video and it wasn't greyed out for some reason. And hardware acceleration was already turned off.
It is clickable in Safari's flash, but not in Firefox.
Other than that, I've reinstalled, cleared storage settings, etc.
