I have a Toshibal Satellite with an AMD A6 Quad CoreProcessor and 6 gigs of Ram.  The Graphics Processor is an AMD Radeon 6520G.

In Linux using the Chrome browser that comes with pepperflash 11.4 I can not view flash videos in full screen with any of your proprietary drivers.  I have tried with Linux Mint Debian Edition using the ones fglrx drivers in the repository.  Also with Linux Mint 13 and Ubuntu 12.04.  What happens is that I get sound but I get a blue screen without any video at all.  I can view video just fine in the minimized window and the sound is fine also.

I have tried the Catalyst 12.9 Beta Drivers for Linux with each of the above linux versions and when I tried to play flash video full screen I got a video that flickered across the screen but was essential unviewable.  Again in full screen the souns was fine.  Also in the minimized window the video and sound ar fine.

Lastly, I have encountered many problems also in Windows 7 between your drivers and Flash 11.4.  Namely, my browsers tend to lag a great deal when loading pages that contain flash video or when I try to play flash video.  My browers also crash quite often.  There is some serious conflict between your drivers and flash driver and I would hope that both parties would work together to resolve what the issue are with the two drivers.  In the mean time, please help me resolve these conflicts.  Thank you!

This being a gaming forum (dealing mainly with game/graphic issues)..and a peer-to-peer forum as well...99.9% of us use Windows not Linus or open source. You should go to a open source forum for more up to date advice. That said, there is a AMD issue report form where you connect directly with AMD graphics developers and I suggest you use it > http://www.amdsurveys.com/se.ashx?s=5A1E27D20B2F3EB8 . Now as to your issue with Win7 and flash (using IE9 or Firefox) the solution is to disable hardware acceleration/rendering. Tools > internet options > advanced. It is quite common to have a outdated flash player as well. Please look at this> http://forums.amd.com/game/messageview.cfm?catid=444&threadid=161234&enterthread=y
