firefox forgets monitor i closed it on

Posted

I use a dual monitor set up, I have fore years. My right is my main and my left is mt alternate. I always have Firefox on my left monitor, that way i can use work programs or game or what ever on my left monitor. Every time i reopen Firefox, it always opened on my left hand side and that's the way i want it. A few days ago my Firefox updated, now when i open it, it always opens on my main monitor and not on my left one, and now closing it on my left monitor doesn't matter. anyone know whats causing this and how to fix it?

hi, does it make a difference if you enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up), search for the preference named browser.startup.blankWindow & double-click it and change its value to false?

I searched and searched for others with this problem. In a day when most search results being picked by who paid to be on the top the list, its hard to find specific things like this. I didn't know i could downgrade back to 61 and that fixed it. Thanks for the responses :)
