In fact, if you try to run Firefox from a different screen it pops up with an error: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load X11 with two screens or displays (see http://maketecheasier.com/run-multiple-x-sessions-without-virtualization/2009/07/11 for loading two X11 displays on one PC with one monitor - in short, "startx && startx -- :1") 2. Load Firefox on one screen (:0.0) 3. Load Firefox on another screen (:0.1) or display (:1.0) 4. Observe the error message on the second load attempt Actual Results: Popup error Expected Results: Another browser window would open on the other X11 screen This can be done using two different profiles, but having separate bookmarks etc. on each monitor isn't a great solution.
