Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:6.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0.1
Build ID: 20110830092941

Steps to reproduce:

Had a tab with Pandora radio open, and then tore it off into a new window, which I moved to a different monitor. I'm running Win7.


Actual results:

The music from the Flash player kept playing, however I was not able to click any buttons in it. Right clicking on it made the Flash menu pop up in the monitor the tab was first in.


Expected results:

You already know what should have happened ;)
