Package: firefox-esr
Version: 45.5.0esr-1
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

CCing a report filed upstream :

Steps to reproduce:

Working on my dual-screen XFCE desktop session on Debian testing
(firefox-esr actually).

I'm starting firefox from the primary screen (from command-line at a
terminal's prompt), with the profile manager dialog prompt activated
upon startup.

Actual results:

The profile selection dialog appears on the secondary screen

Firefox later starts maximized on the primary screen.

Expected results:

The profile selection dialog should appear on the primary screen where
the terminal from which firefix is started is located.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Can be closed then.
