(I have Vista and Firefox)

Today I was watching some youtube videos and then went to read some text pages. Suddenly the entire browser window showed a skewed/smeared still image of the last video I'd seen (with no surrounding text), and then went back to normal.

This has happened exactly twice in the past two years. The first time it happened was actually after I hadn't used it in 15 minutes.

BTW, in Firefox 4.0 and 5.0, when you close it, it briefly shows you remnants of Flash images you looked at (youtube or ads). Firefox previously never did that.

I'm beginning to feel like we are doing the troubleshooting for a newbie tech consultant...

It happened twice in two years? ....call it an anomaly and leave it at that. Flash probably hung for a second, it's nothing to worry about... as advanced as computers are, code isn't and will never be 100% perfect.

Or someone who can barely operate a PC and obsesses over every little thing.
