problems and issues with dual/multiple monitors in products.

Well here is a new one as far as i can tell with a quick search 
i was looking at panorama images looking for a background for my 2 monitors so i
had the firefox window expanded across both by manual dragging it past the end
of the screen it all worked fine till i tried to right click and image. the
right click menu was in the wrong place, instead of beaing under my mouse it was
on the wrong monitor

debian testing
xinerama+nv driver+ old(gpl)ati driver
nv 4200 and a very old ati pci card
2.6.7 custom build (i can give you the .config if you feel the need)

Josh, what you're describing sounds like bug 245418.
Depends on: 246117
I'm not sure if this is related to this bug or if I should open a new one, but
I figured I'd start here.  Using the attached xorg.conf file, I run Firefox on
the primary desktop (0,0) and Thunderbird on the secondary (0,1).  If I have
Firefox running and click a link in Thunderbird, I get the following notice:

"Firefox is already running, but is not responding.  To open a new window, you
must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."

If I run both Thunderbird & Firefox on the same monitor, everything is fine. 
Is there anyway to tell Thunderbird to look on all desktops for a running
Firefox instance to open the URL in?

I'm running:

Firefox: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051202
Fedora/1.5-0.fc4 Firefox/1.5

Thunderbird: version 1.5 (20051201)

Fedora Core 4: Linux 2.6.14-1.1656_FC4 #1 Thu Jan 5
22:13:22 EST 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

bug 96034 still exists in ff, is 5 years old, and assigned to people no longer here.  It may not seem like much but when you can't select and item from a form because it appears off screen, it's more than a minor annoyance.

Can someone add #319965 as a dependency?

I assume that you will want to add Bug 466413 as a dependency.

Just filed bug #492002 for multi-monitor cookie confirmation dialog (always opens on same monitor, regardless of the location of the browser window that caused it to open).
Depends on: 470356
Would be a dependency as well?
