If I move firefox to the laptop monitor it seems fine. I just right clicked for spell check and it happened with that popup window also. I am not sure if this happens all of the time but once it starts happening the behaviour is consistent. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.open firefox on the external monitor 2.type something in the url bar or hover over an icon or right click for a context menu 3. Actual Results: popup windows show up on the laptop screen Expected Results: popup windows show up on the external monitor in the correct location
Created attachment 320549 [details] screencast illustrating the issue This was attached to the original bug in Fedora.
Does this happen when you dynamically add the new monitor and Firefox was already running when there was only one screen? In this case, does it still happen if you restart Firefox after the second screen is added? That could be related to bug 403706
That should go to the original reporter of the bug -- johnp already present on this bug (I don't know how to change needinfo here).
Hasn't been an issue for awhile as far as I can remember
WFM per reporter. (very likely also a duplicate)
