I have a dual-monitor set-up on my PC. I have a 19" widescreen monitor which NVidia treats as Monitor 2, and a 17" non-widescreen monitor which NVidia treats as Monitor 1. Monitor 2 is set as the main monitor. Interestly enough, the set up was the same on Windows 7 32-bit which I had installed. 17" as M1, 19" as M2, 19" set as main monitor, yet FireFox opened properly on Monitor 2.

I'm clueless as to what is causing this...
