    I have a nice bookmarklet (a browser bookmark that is JavaScript code) that automatically makes whatever Safari window I'm in full screen. When I connect my external monitor, though, the bookmarklet automatically moves whatever window I'm using to my Mac's internal monitor. Is there a bookmarklet for making a Safari window full screen, but only in whatever monitor the window is currently in? Thanks!

    Safari 5.1 broke it...

    sadly, this functionality has been broken in safari 5.1. I myself am looking for fixes too, as I wrote a bookmarklet (among several others) that would just resize the screen to specific sizes, but it now forces the window to jump to to the primary window.

    first I thought it might be because my primary window is on the right so the locations were considered in negative values, so I tweaked my display prefs temporarily to see if the extra window being on the right would make any difference. no luck.

    I alert on the script to confirm that it is in fact giving the proper x and y values, which it does, but safari 5.1 won't allow it to stay on any screen other than the the primary.

    I haven't found many threads yet about this, so I would recommend that we both post it to the safari suggestions on the official feedback page ( http://www.apple.com/feedback/ ) as well as report it inside safari itself as a bug from the safari menu.

    Is this still broken? I'd love to be able to click a bookmarklet and have my Safari window go full-screen on my external monitor like I used to.
