I connect my TV via VGA to create a secondary monitor. Everything's working fine, but if I watch a video via Firefox or any other browser, as soon as I click FULL SCREEN, the image appears on my laptop screen instead.

I tried shutting off Hardware Acceleration in FF...that worked. UNTIL I restarted the computer and opened FF again. Now nothing seems to keep the images on the second monitor.

I've also turned off the Flash Hardware acceleration to no avail.

I figured this out once before on my own but no luck this time 'round (my HD recently had a major error that was not reparable. Dell sent a new one, so I'm trying to get all my settings back to normal).

Thoughts? And thank you!
