    I have dual displays setup with a MBP. One time I opened up firefox on the laptop and moved it to the second display. Now, it always wants to open on the second display and I want it to open on the laptop display by default. How do I tell it to do this? I've tried:

    -Dragging Firefox 2.0 back to the laptop display, closing it, and reopening. But still goes to second monitor.
    -Tried turning off laptop, unplugging second monitor, starting up again and opening firefox on laptop. Shutting down, reconnecting monitor, starting up, and launch firefox only to have it open on the secondary monitor again.

    No matter what I've tried it always wants to open on the secondary display and I can't get it to revert back to the laptop by default.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you tried just unplugging the external monitor cable from the notebook when it's on? When I unplug the cable, it turns into a blue screen and everything "window" goes back to the notebook screen.
