From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; N; PPC; en-US; m18) Gecko/20010201 BuildID: 2001020108 When I startup Mozilla, the very fist browser window opens in the main monitor. From there, when I press command-N or choose "New Navigator Window"from the "File" menu the new windows open in the second monitor. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Startup Mozilla 2.The first window appears on the main monitor. 3.Try to open a new window via shortcut key or menu. Actual Results: A new window opens in the second monitor. Expected Results: A new window opens in the main monitor. I have two monitors attached to a PowerMac 7600/120, running Mac OS J1-9.1. My main monitor (i.e. with the menubar and Mac OS logo during the startup) is attached to a PCI video card. Second monitor (i.e. without the menubar) is attached to the original video output of the Mac.
Can someone with 2 monitors confirm this?

I am going to confirm this based on that report. This looks pretty nasty!

Kazuhito, bradman: what build are you running? Pink checked in a fix for Macintosh window positioning on 28 Jan, days before either of your reports. He was having multiple monitor positioning problems, all of which have cleared up for him. As far as I know, the Mac is good now. Please verify you're using a build made 29 Jan or later.
Happened to me on stock Mozilla 0.8 install. App date is Feb 15, 2001.
I have the exact same configuration as bradman1, main monitor on the right, secondary on the left. I tested on Build ID : 2001021908 and it still happened. I think the recent fix is somewhat working because each new window is moved a bit to make cascading effects. The only thing is that it appears on the wrong(left, secondary) monitor.
I'm seeing it with monitors arranged as you say, with the main one on the right. Targetting 0.9 for now. Gonna need some help from two-monitors-pinkerton on this.
