User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3

If a new display is added while Firefox is open, a number of Firefox UI elements do not become aware of the new display until re-launch of Firefox.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Firefox.
2. Plug in a second DVI display.
3. Drag the Firefox window over to new display.
3. Invoke a tooltip or pop-down URL history list.
Actual Results:  
The tooltip or history pop-down box displays on the wrong screen.

Expected Results:  
What should happen is that the tooltip or history box should display on the same screen that the Firefox window is currently on.

I have a 1.5 GHz 15" PowerBook G4 running 10.4.9.  I am using the built-in DVI-out with a DVI display (no adapter).  I am unaware if this happens with the s-video or VGA, or with other video cards, or with other versions of Mac OS X, because I don't have that stuff available.
