Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: flashplugin-nonfree

Dear friends,

After an embedded flash area is clicked, flash captures all keystokes
which otherwise would be captured by Firefox.

For example, trying to open a new tab using <Ctrl>+T while watching a
youtube video does nothing. Same goes for all keyboard shortcuts.

Naturally, keystrokes which are captured by the window manager are not
affected, so closing the windows using <Alt>+<F4> works.

I think that it should be expected that Firefox's hot-keys would still
work, even if a flash area is selected.

Will this break flash applications which are listening for these keys
for user input? I bet this issue is reported upstream and has a long
discussion on it.

Perhaps nothing can be done about it currently, but nevertheless, I
think it is a bug.

Many blessings.
