Flash
i'm using Windows 7, 64 bit. I have flash version 11.3.31.222 (latest) and I have a dual monitor setup. Before everything worked fine but lately (without upgrading anything, just all of a sudden) the full screen option in flash doesn't wasn't to work anymore. When I full screen a video on my right monitor it will go full mode on the left monitor (and because the left monitor is bigger than the right one, its very annoying). Before it would open the video correctly in what monitor the browser is opened...) I tried things like IgnoFlash , I also tried the FlashPatch from http://aptnk.in (by Amiya Patanaik). Neither of them solved the problem... I have included a screenshot of how the problem looks like. Note that when I have my browser open on my left monitor, it does open full screen mode correctly on the left monitor. http://i.stack.imgur.com/Q0S12.jpg

Software/Hardware used:
Windows 7 64-bit, adobe flash 11.3.31.222, dual monitor

This worked for me, best of luck
Toni, mine has not been working as well. I worked around the problem by doing the following:
-Go to chrome://plugins
-Click and expand +Details in the Upper Right
-Check over the flash files. 
-One is version 11.3.31.222, the other two show version 11,3,300,268
-Disable the odd version (11.3.31.222) and reload the flash content
This seems to fix it for the time being.
Hope this helps track down this bug.
