Context menus appear on main monitor, but not on secondary

I just upgraded to the latest Beta of Firefox 4, from an earlier install of Firefox 3. I am running Win 7 64 bit, and I noticed that any menu that brings up a context menu, be it the orange Firefox button, right clicking on a tab, or even the "Remember this password?" box disappears when I have Firefox on my secondary monitor. This didn't happen in 3, and the problem does not happen when I drag Firefox over to my primary monitor. I've tried disabling themes and disabled/uninstalled plugins that I no longer have a use for, and the problem still persists.
