It was nice while it lasted. After a couple of hours, it just quit acting like that. It has reverted to its old behavior, which is that even if you don't explicitly exit full screen mode, switching focus away from a Flash full screen window closes the full screen. The Flash stream window is still there but you have to reinstate the full screen to get it back. So if you try to switch to a second stream to put it into full screen as well, you lose the first full screen. Back to one at a time.

I suspect that closing all streams & browser windows & relaunching Firefox from scratch will bring it back, maybe for a few hours. Maybe there's a memory leak. Maybe there's some global system memory usage threshold that if you cross, Flash can't handle multiple simultaneous full screens any more. I'm just guessing. Whatever. It's not like it's that big a hardship. It would just be nice if it acted consistently.
