User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1) Gecko/20020826 When starting Mozilla, the browser window will open in the same position as it was when closed from the last session if it was in the area of the primary display. However, if the browser was positioned in the secondary monitor on exit the next time it is launched the left edge of the windows is positioned at zero and the rest of the positioning is retained. This behavior may not be seen when the primary display is to the left of the secondary monitor as coordinates will still be positive on the secondary display. Also, the same behavior should be seen when the primary monitor is located below the secondary except the top position will be adjusted to zero. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla browser 2. Move window to secondary display 3. Close Mozilla 4. Open Mozilla again. Actual Results: Mozilla opened with the left edge of the window at coordinate zero on the primary display. Expected Results: It should have opened on the secondary display. It's left coordinate should have been something like -800.
The proper component for this bug is XP Toolkit: Widgets This is almost a duplicate of Bug 21942, except that this bug deals with window placement prefs.

So is the entire UI within the bounds of the XPToolkit? There is apparently (from the recent bugs I have found) a severe problem with Mozilla when dealing with negative screen coordinates. Whether it be window placement, mouse hovering issues in a web document, or menu highlighting in the browser's menu, the entire user interface (while still operable) breaks on a secondary monitor. I get the feeling that somewhere there is code that saves the current mouse coordinates for comparison during the next mouse message. However, if the current mouse coordinates are negative they are saved as zero. What module would contain that code?
*** Bug 170800 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
in bug 179745 comment 2, a user says that a new build cured a problem he had with the browser "always popping up on the primary display instead of the one where I closed it last". That sounds exactly like this bug. Can someone test it again with a new build?
It's a platform independent bug. (tested on Linux)
WFM on Vista. anyone else?
