2013 Dual screen: Jumping browser from right screen to middle of left screen

Has anyone else the same problem?

I'm here with 2013 SP2 64 bit Build 200 and two screens. Left screen is graphics area, Browser is on the left of right screen. Graphics is ATI Fire Pro V7800 with driver 9.3.3.3000.

In video (zipped MP4) you see a cutout of both screens, think of screens changing at the left of the browser.

Now, in many cases, after doing an operation, the browser is jumping back to the middle of my graphics in the left screen.

 

:smileymad: You surely can imagine, how much I'm liking that ..

as a thought....

 

check your driver options and is there anything about dialog-box repositioning (turn off) and/or preserve application position (turn on).

 

Could the gpu drivers be flinging the browser bar back to the primary monitor if it thinks it's a (new?) dialog box?
