Windows randomly show on all workspaces, I can't disable it.

I've been experiencing an extremely annoying bug in the last few days. Windows will randomly show up in all workspaces, and if I click Only on this workspace it dooesn't change it. Right now I have one firefox window showing in only workspace #1 and another firefox window showing on all workspaces. The one that shows on one workspace I can show it on all workspaces and put it back showing on only one. The other one won't toggle it is stuck on all workspaces. I haven't found how to make it reproductible, it seems random so far.

Did you troubleshoot by deleting the other workspaces. Run it a bit reboot then add back the workspaces?
Sorry just guessing here. And might help if you tell us what Mint & graphics chipset and whether you are using the default open drivers or proprietary drivers.

I just figured it out, I can't believe I didn't just realise that before. So obvious.
There's this setting in Cinnamon/Workspaces "Only use workspaces on primary monitor"
The windows that are shown on all workspaces are systematically the ones in my laptop screen, the ones in the external monitor have their independant workspaces.
