Issue with dual monitor

Really strange issue,

I have dual monitors connected to my Windows 7 Professional HP computer which is connected via a Triton USB vga adapter.  When I attempt to go online, via firefox or IE on my "home screen" which has the start window, everything works fine; however, when I go to the other screen, say screen 2, I can't type anything on the URL section.

But you can still see things on your second monitor and use the mouse on it?
If that is the case then the PC can "see" the monitor.
Do you have answers to my other questions?

Can you type elsewhere on the second monitor, for example in notepad?
Can you type in the search box of firefox?
Can you use keyboard shortcuts in firefox and IE (eg ctrl+t to open new tab)?

Funny thing is that when I click on the display settings, I only see a 1 and not a 2.  I guess there's only one monitor that the pc can see?
