Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 445359
On a dual screen setup all popup windows show up on the second monitor
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:51:22 EDT
Description of problem:
When hovering over a button or using the typeahead/history feature of the URL
bar the window for the tooltip or typeahead selection show up on the laptop
monitor while firefox is on the external display. If I move firefox to the
laptop monitor it seems fine. I just right clicked for spell check and it
happened with that popup window also.
I am not sure if this happens all of the time but once it starts happening the
behaviour is consistent.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open firefox on the external monitor
2.type something in the url bar or hover over an icon or right click for a
popup windows show up on the laptop screen
popup windows show up on the external monitor in the correct location
Created attachment 304634 [details]
screen capture of issue (the side with the panel is the external display)
I notice similar problem in my setup.
Large desktop, two screens side to side in Twinview (NVidia) configuration, left
one is primary.
When firefox is on the left screen and right click on a page the pop-up comes up
under the pointer. If I move firefox to the second screen and right click, the
pop-up menu come up on the left edge of the right screen.
This wasn't the issue with Firefox 2 only with firefox 3.
Version : firefox-3.0-0.60.beta5.fc9.i386
Can be always reproduced.
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database

more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug
tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration
in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
