While playing to video, I then click on the 'full screen' button, both browsers open to a white full screen for a second, then close, and a error reporting box pops asking to send report to MS or Mozilla. (depending which browser I tried) There is no freeze or XP mode crash. I can reopen the browser again, or run other programs inside XP.
