Of course it's the window manager's duty to place the windows but as firefox doesn't start a new process for each invocation, this cannot work (because the windows of a process are always created on the same screen). When I have a running firefox process, whose windows are on screen 0 and I start one on screen 1 the firefox from screen 1 should be displayed on screen 1 and not screen 0. I'm not sure if it's generally not possible that an application displays windows on different X screens but if not,... code must be added to run a new process on the 2nd screen instead of just creating a new windows (from the old process). Of course this is problematic with firefox's profiles,.. Any ideas? Reproducible: Always
