All of a sudden every time I start up Firefox it will open on my 2nd monitor, any fix for this?
tried dragging it to your primary screen, quitting it, then opening again?
yea tried that one already, thanks.
try deleting org.mozilla.firefox.plist in your home Library's preferences folder. this will reset the window sizes and positions and the settings in Firefox's preferences.
Do you have spaces enabled ? In spaces, you can specify where you want an application to open. Just another suggestion to try.
Thanks but did not work.
I do have spaces enabled, where do I edit this feature that makes Firefox open on the left where my extra monitor is?
In system preferences->Exposé&Spaces.
Yea but is there a option there someplace to, make FF open on let or main monitor? I really didn't see anything of that sort.
Do you see Application Assignments? If yes, click on the + sign and add the desired application.
Yes I did this but still opens on left, very weird.
I'll try it this afternoon when I get home. I don't have Spaces enabled since I have two monitors, and they are enough for me.
Thanks for your help.
Try disconnecting your second monitor. Then launch and quit the browser. Then reconnect the second monitor.
Yes, try this solution. I though Spaces would allow you to choose the secondary display, but I was wrong. I just enabled Spaces, and it allows me to pick a space only.
Now, I've also notice that if you disconnect the secondary monitor, it usually has to bring everything to the primary/single monitor. Connecting the monitor back while the computer is still one can screw things up. Try starting the computer with the secondary monitor first, shutdown, connect the secondary monitor, and start the computer again.
I know this be old news but in case no one has answered yet.
Hi, what seems to work is open Firefox drag it over to your main monitor (DO NOT MAXIMIZE FIREFOX) then close the windowed Firefox and now on reload it should open in your main screen.
Browser opens on second monitor
Hi, did anyone solve this mystery, I have tried all the above to no avail, any help would be really appreciated.
Firefox sucks. Get Safari.
