The same thing with "Software update" window. (Help->Check for updates)
These dialogs are opened with the "centerscreen" flag, so appear on the center of the screen and their position is not persisted.
I confirm this behaviour (for both dialogs) is equivalent on Mac OS X. Tested with Mac OS X 10.5.6 (Dutch, nl_NL) and Firefox 3.5 beta 4 (Dutch, nl_NL locale). Question is whether that's a bug or not.
