    Youtube videos very SLOW getting in to FULL sceen.


    My Acer 700(i5 core) is running nearly back to normal and as fast.

    But I have one problem when i am watching a video on Youtube and i try to watch it in FULL sceen.
    It takes a long time(over 5 seconds) to go to watch the Youtube video in FULL sceen and the video freezes while i am doing it.
    I have Adobe Flash player installed and Firefox.

    And i have NEVER had this problem before the Windows 8.1 update.

    Can anyone help me to fix the problem please?

    Are you running Adobe Flash 12.0.0.77 or higher?
