Trying to watch a video from a Google video service.

Okay, so this is extremely odd. My main browser of choice is Firefox, and I watch a lot of YouTube including Linus Tech Tips. You know, the video service from Google. And on my laptop, I usually use Microsoft Edge (which is said to be switching to Chromium, oh joy) because I just can't bother with using Firefox, even though I already installed it. I have now switched to Firefox on it, but a glaring issue has shown up. Whenever I use Firefox & full screen a YouTube video, the taskbar is plastered on top of it. However, it doesn't affect Google Chrome, I found that out by installing it while typing this up & full-screening a Pewdiepie video: this one. I thinks it's an episode from poor man's YAIY.  It also won't affect Edge. So, how do I fix this?

Restart your computer if you haven't already. Windows Explorer can get confused with what should be open over top when in fullscreen mode. If you've restarted, then I have no idea since I have not experienced this myself.

Look, I appreciate the effort, but if you're gonna Rickroll someone, at least use the right version.

I think I found out the root of the problem. For whatever reason, it's Minecraft. Yeah, whenever I launch & quit, fullscreening a YouTube video on Firefox just confuses Windows Explorer. That's really odd, because on my main computer (a late 2013 iMac) running Windows 8.1, nothing happens. So, mystery solved. And I'll admit, I think I used the wrong version to you-know-what.

 

WEATHER UPDATE

Actually listening to that version, it's a very good mix.
