That's a "feature" of the software you are using.
It affects many browsers (ie: Firefox and chrome) and others
(libreoffice, etc) - usually the more heavyweight variety.

They have a master process and when you try to start a new instance,
they go through this master process, opening the new window on the
display where the master instance is running rather than the one you
asked for.

There is nothing xpra can do about this.
You may be able to workaround the issue by:
* using a different user account
* modifying the environment to fool the application into thinking this
is a new profile

Please always specify the exact version in use.
