Works for me on:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110720 Firefox/8.0a1

Can you reproduce this issue on a clean Firefox profile?

When you refer to auto complete, you mean the suggestions given when you start typing a URL, right? 
I get the same behavior (previously navigated websites) on monitor 1 as well as on the 2nd one.

I did reply to AndreiD but the reply seems to have disappeared!.

Yes it was replicatable on a clean install with a new profile.

BUT the good news is that Firefox V8.0 has fixed the problem, it just seems to have been a problem with V4.01 which was current when I reported the issue.
