    Basically, got 2x Acer AL1916W TFTs ...

    Fancy running dual monitor, but want to put the 2nd on a KVM for my HTPC... with a seperate KVM for my KB + Mouse... so i can get completely independant operation...

    With the KVM set so both monitors are on my gaming rig, all seems ok... but say i set FireFox to start on monitor 2, then i swapped the kvm so i only had 1 monitor... what would firefox do ? start on monitor 1 ? If i then flipped the monitor back to my pc, and started firefox, would it start up on pc 2 again ???

    Help appreciated :p ...

    I assume you meant "start up on monitor 2 again" instead of "pc 2"

    Why don't you just try it out? :)
