Drop down menu displays in miniature on wrong monitor

I am on 15" MacBook Pro Retina with HDMI to an LCD HD TV. OS X 10.8.2 Firefox 18.0

When I have the Firefox browser on the TV screen, drop down menus appear in miniature on the MacBook screen. I disabled the hardware acceleration and this seemed to work for the first instance of use but then the system reverted to miniature menu on the wrong screen.

Any ideas for curing this gratefully received.

Re: Drop down menu displays in miniature on wrong monitor

You could try using Firefox Nightly, that may work ok. Unfortunately that is not the sort of thing that can be recommended as a general solution.

It appears there may be some bugs in Firefox 18 as discussed in this thread:

For now all I can suggest is that you watch the other thread for developments.

Note Firefox update to 18.0.1 will be released shortly, maybe this Friday, and it is hoped it will resolve a retina issue
