Two rapid fire adobe flash windows can get the mouse in an odd state in first person mode

      Affects all CEF versions. I had installed chromium flash because livestream odiously clings to flash and my friend uses it for streaming to the grid. Chromium lacks a means to merely toggle plugins on and off. So, once I installed it I was stuck with it until I uninstalled it.

      Every time flash starts on chromium it pops up a console window for an infinitesimally short period of time, just long enough to steal focus and give it back. If this is done in first person the mouse pointer will go visible a moment and return...

      However, if a flash console window pops and before it's finished doing its thing a SECOND window pops when you are in first person, the mouse pointer can get stuck out in the open. In this state it's impossible to zoom out of first person mode by mouse wheel, though m key and escape still work.

      This can be mildly disconcerting when it happens, until you get used to it.

      Now if I could deliberately toggle that mouse that wouldn't be bad (and a topic for another JIRA) but the uncontrolled aspect of it all makes this an all around PITA.

      Person is migrating to twitch, which has decided that html5 is not such a bad idea, so I'm liable to enact the reasonable solution and just uninstall flash.
