[Bug 434476]


Doesn't seem to be fixed in Firefox 33 on OpenSuse 13.1 with KDE4 &
XScreenSaver-5.29 (not KDE's one): xscreensaver still sprungs up while
playing fullscreen video on Youtube. May be a result of using "Download
Manager (S3)" addon which draws a bar at the bottom that disappear
slightly after video goes fullscreen. One more reason why it should work
on non-fullscreen videos also, since the definition of "fullscreen"
seems ambiguous.

Also, how about inhibiting screensaver on flash plugin spawn and
uninhibiting on its termination ? Adobe will never add this
functionality, but we are stuck with it. Doing so in Firefox as
extension of this patch looks like the most straightforward solution.
Especially in comparison to something like
