In fullscreen mode please open the VM menu from the mini toolbar and select the View menu. There you can select which screen is used for fullscreen.

This bug is still absolutely valid. This did not start happening on my machine until after the first Oracle release of virtualbox.. suddenly I am no longer able to use fullscreen mode on my second monitor.. it jumps back to the laptop monitor when I enter fullscreen. This always worked before the Oracle release.

In that case please do into fullscreen, open the mini toolbar and select the "View" menu. There you can select which physical monitor is chosen when you go into fullscreen.

Thanks for the feedback! I know that the default assignment virtual screen to physical screen is sometimes a bit surprising but the menu allows to override that so I will close this ticket.
