    Hi there Rich,

    When you experienced this issue, how where you visiting Facebook? Using the Facebookapp, using IE App, using IE Desktop modus.

    Ok, you use facebook through IE. But you didn't say you were using the IE APP or the IE DESKTOP MODUS. Please clarify that one for me.

    Since you say that you can view Youtube fullscreen if you visit the Youtube site we can confirm that there is nothing wrong with your pc/ browser. Perhaps it's a Facebook issue?

    You might want to trial and error switching the "trace security" from IE on and off. Perhaps the "trace security" is preventing you to visit youtube through Facebook properly.

    Desk top modus, I think you maybe correct in your assumption could be a facebook fault.
