I have two monitors (built in PB display and external LCD).

Since upgrading to Tiger, when I open Safari it displays its initial window on the external display. Always.

It's nice that it remembers but I would like it to open on the built in display.

Do you guys know how to get OS X to 'forget' which monitor to use (hopefully it will revert to the primary display).

Any ideas?

I'm not sure, but I had this problem too. I fixed it by changing the size of the window slightly once I moved it to the display I wanted it on.

It was very annoying.

Closing/opening a new Safari window in the place you want it will also do the trick.

Dunno if you are running Tiger, but that's the first thing I tried when I had this issue. I'm used to the behavior that wherever I close a window, the new one will open. This is how the Finder behaves and how I believe Safari use to behave. But it is not behaving like that in Tiger.
