Confirmed under XP Pro SP 3
HTTP_USER_AGENT 	Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1.2) Gecko/20090729 Firefox/3.5.2 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) 

I have same behavior as mentioned in the first post.  The only thing I would add is that moving the original browser (from which the tab was moved) to the second monitor corrects the issue.  This seems to indicate that the auto-complete menu is programmed to display in the parent window of the original browser.
Probably the same underlying problem as bug 477797.
Depends on: 477797
