This is a known bug in Mozilla Firefox.

This is because flash grabs the focus of your keyboard and all shortcuts that worked with firefox won't, until you shift the focus back to the main windows.

Why they are not fixing this problem ? –  Rana Muhammad Waqas Feb 19 at 6:50
    
@RanaMuhammadWaqas: Flash will be dead in a few months, but this was not an answer 10 years ago, so pretty much no idea why. –  i08in Feb 19 at 6:58
