How do I stop flash from hijacking the keyboard?

It's pretty annoying that I can't navigate the page while watching an embedded YouTube video, there must be an add-on or a setting to change.

When the Flash plug-in is running, it steals focus from Firefox. To return focus to Firefox, click an empty area of the web page. At that point, the usual keyboard shortcuts should work again.

The developers are aware of this issue.

But then I have to use the mouse.
