    i have two displays, one being a large HDTV that i use for running video, and a smaller primary display that i use for everything else.

    i am getting pissed off because everytime i open up a new program or window, they insist on opening on the hdtv display. once i drag the program over the other display, new windows in that program will stay there - until i quit the program and repeat the process.

    i have the menu bar on my primary display, so i don't understand the affinity for the hdtv. also, when i open up the displays preferences, 2 windows open (1 for each display), but the red/yellow/green buttons are only on the window for hdtv.... which implies to me that the mac thinks the hdtv is the primary display.... argh

    Have you tried swapping the arrangement, left for right?
