Does anyone know how I can change the preferences so Firefox knows which screen to open up on?

Thanks.

What OS? When I had a dual monitor setup on XP pro, it started up on whichever monitor I last started it on.

Try: Corrupt_localstore.rdf_(KB)
(do not delete the localstore.rdf file in the Firefox program installation folder!)

Note: deleting localstore.rdf will reset the toolbar customizations, so you might first try to rename (e.g. localstore.rdf.sav) to test if that solves it.
