Change Adobe Flash full screen taskbar icon

Hi all,

I have dual monitors and when i go to full screen on my secondary monitor to watch anything utilizing Adobe Flash, I get a crappy icon in my taskbar.

Not that I mind the icon, I would just like to change it to a nice Adobe icon.

I have been trying to find what this icon in my taskbar is...crappy screen capture below....

The closest thing to anything Adobe Flash on my pc is ... SysWOW64/Macromed

Not What I need

Thanks p5 but that will not fix the problem. Seems its just something that Firefox doesn't deem important enough to bother with. Maybe in the next upgrade.

Thanks for the try though. Have a good one!

Solved Itsself

Adobe Flash as of 5/20/2011 has addressed this issue. Yeeeaaaaaaa!

There is now a Red "F" icon in the taskbar when monitor 2 is fullscreen.
