Using a dual-screen setup with 1280x1024 on the primary screen and 1024x768 on the secondary one. When using a browser window on the secondary (smaller) screen, sometimes a form-popup is drawn upward, even when there is no place for the full popup. It seems as the popup height is always calculated based on the primary screen size. See attachement for a screen shot.

My guess, is that when it asks for the screen height, the answer it gets back is 1024 from the primary screen, instead of the 768 for secondary screen. I guess the fix is to see if there are dual screens and then determine which screen we are on and then get the height for that screen.

I think the problem I'm seeing is covered by this bug. With Win98 using a Radeon VE card, with moz maximized on the secondary display. When I type in the URL bar the autocomplete box pops up on the primary display.
Christopher (the second one): that sounds sort of like bug 141204.
Created attachment 114999 [details] A pic showing what happens, the one that was here shows nothing I run Mozilla mail on my 2nd monitor. When you right click, or click on a toolbar it comes up in the other monitor.
This also happens in XP.

I'm on Mac OS X Panther using Firefox 0.9: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.9 and I get the autocomplete selections on the primary monitor when the browser window is on the secondary monitor. Thanks.
Observed with Moz 1.8a3 on WinXp. Primary screen is 1152x864, secondary 1280x1024. This means the secondary screen is the larger one. The problem is thus not due to incorrect size retrieval. A debug build informs me that Mozilla considers all windows that are entirely on the secondary to be actually off-screen. Thus, I think it doesn't even attempt to fit the dropdowns into the screen - because it thinks it isn't on one.
This happens with Firefox 1.0.1 on Windows XP (with an ATI 9600 Graphics card, if this has any importance). In fact, when running Firefox on the second monitor, all popup windows (e.g. menus, autocomplete lists) appear on the first monitor; their y position is correct, but they are always adjacent to the right edge of the first monitor.

As of Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 on OSX, this is still happening: If I Control-Click on an attachment or click on the Header (To, CC, BCC) in the message composition window, if the Window is in the secondary monitor, the pop-up comes up at the left-hand edge of the primary monitor. In my setup, I have the secondary (1680x1050) to the left of the primary (1024x768).
