Windows 7: Flash player "ESC to exit full screen" stays

Flash player "ESC to exit full screen" stays

I can'y find this answer so I am falling back on the best forum ever...this one.

During Flash playback I will normally watch in "full screen" works great. In the last months more and more videos are playing with the "Press ESC to exit full screen mode" message always displayed. Now it's happening on YouTube. This is the last straw. I can't take it. It does not disappear like it's supposed to.

I have tried the Flash Player settings manager and adjusted every setting to see if this is the problem. No help. I think it may be the hosting site but I don't know. Some YouTube videos work like normal and some don't. This happens on other sites too. Have you had this problem and fixed it? Do you know how to fix it. Please help me out here. I have searched the net and no solutions exist that I can find.

I found an article on "issues" for Flash full screen. They said to update drivers. I updated to 191.07 (latest Nvidia driver) No help.

Tried IE8 and the latest flash plugin (for both IE and Chrome) No help.

Please....this is killing me.

I found out on my own how to fix this if anyone has the same problem. It's in the settings manager for flash player (the on line one) and it has to do with the site being able to store stuff on your computer.
