Whenever I play in full screen mode, there are flashing white bars at the bottom of my screen that go all the way across my screen. Does anyone have the same problem, and know how to fix it???

Please post more information about your problem, as well as screenshots (press F3 to make screenshots). What system do you have, which computer, video card, etc.? Does the bug happen all the time or only under certain conditions?

As I said in a previous post, whenever I play in fullscreen mode, these flashing white bars appear at the bottom of my screen. I have some PC specs here... Intel Celeron N2830 @2.16 Hz 2.16 Ghz, 4 GB of RAM 3.89 usable, 64 Bit Operating System x64 based processor, Intel HD Graphics. This problem usually occurs when I open thigs from the menu such as the Route Manager, map, etc... It doesnt happen with any specific airport. I would post a screenshot of the bars but whenver I take a screenshot the bars do not appear. If anyone has a similar problem and or knows how to fix it please let me know. Thank you!

i'm going to guess that this is a windows operating system? you only say that it is 64bit...

can you take a screen shot and post it somewhere like on imgur so we can maybe see these bars you are talking about?
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
