User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0
Build ID: 20121006022900

Steps to reproduce:

1. Opened a second firefox window
2. Moved it to my secondary monitor
3. Opened eg. http://vimeo.com/1561578
4. Pressed the full screen button in the video

Actual results:

Fullscreen opened, but on my primary monitor, ie. wrong monitor.

Expected results:

Fullscreen should have opened on the same monitor as the window is on, in this case the second monitor.

Does it work in a different browser ?
The video is played by flash and flash should be responsible for the fullscreen.

Unfortunately, same problem with Chromium.. Is it possible (or worth it) to report bugs in flash?
I don't know but you can try it.
Component: Untriaged → Flash (Adobe)
Product: Firefox → Plugins
Version: 16 Branch → unspecified

I'm closing a lot of bugs which are filed as Adobe Flash bugs which are either irrelevant, not actionable, or not serious enough to track in the Mozilla bug tracker. For the most part, Flash bugs should be filed in Adobe bugbase, and we'll only track a few highly-critical issues in the Mozilla tracker.
