Build Identifier: firefox-3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9.i386

(originally filed as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=445359)

When hovering over a button or using the typeahead/history feature of the URL
bar the window for the tooltip or typeahead selection show up on the laptop
monitor while firefox is on the external display.  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
Actual Results:  
popup windows show up on the laptop screen

Expected Results:  
popup windows show up on the external monitor in the correct location

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
