Description

When starting TBB or when hitting Ctrl+Shift+U to request a new identity the browser window opens on the secondary monitor (of two total). It is quite annoying if the secondary monitor is turned off (e.g. I sometimes use only the primary).

Hm, so, this does not happen always? When you are starting Tor Browser are you just seeing the browser window on the second screen or everything browser related (e.g. the Tor Launcher start-up wizard as well)? Does Firefox 60esr behave differently during start-up in your environment? (see: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/all/ for some bundles to test)

Correct.

Just the browser window.

Does Firefox 60esr behave differently during start-up in your environment?

I no longer use Firefox. The last time I did (perhaps September) it didn't behave this way. The issue reported here has been an issue for a very long time (1-2 years perhaps, maybe more) so it is not related to FF 60esr. I think it is related to TBB's settings which resize/reposition the window on identity change.
