User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021203 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021203 Mozilla's main window is offset about five pixels to the right from the top left corner of the screen at launch. I nudge it to the left to align with the screen edge but the browser will not remember its renewed window position at next launch. This problem appeared about several weeks ago. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Launch Mozilla. 2.The window which appears is few pixels offset, so I adjust its position. 3.Quit Mozilla. 4.Relaunch Mozilla. Actual Results: The window is again offset to the right. Expected Results: The window should be placed at the top left corner of the screen. I am using a dual monitor system with a PowerMac G4 QuickSilver. My second screen is located to the left of the main screen: (second monitor)(main monitor w/ menubar).
Reporter, try removing the localstore.rdf file in your profile directory (it will be recreated). It contains the window positions, the currently selected theme, the sidebar position. etc ..., so you might have to set them back to what you like. then close Mozilla (saving the values), and reopen. Maybe this is bug 99236 (and localstorte has problems with multiple monitors).
Jo, Thank you for your suggestion. I tried what you told me but the problem persisted. Without the localstore.rdf, Mozilla displays its window close to the top left corner, say (5,5), of the screen, and after resizing it or moving it around, it remembers its size and position, but never sticks to (0,0). The next time I launch Mozilla, the window appears slightly moved to the right, around (5,0).
Was this window displayed on the monitor with the menubar, or the one without ?
The window was displayed on the monitor with the menubar.
Kazuhito, can you still reproduce this problem using a current nightly build?
Checking with build 2003022303, this problem does not show up any more.
