Modal confirm dialog appears many times on about:config, if I hold Enter


(Core :: XUL, defect)





(Reporter: arni2033, Unassigned)


>>>   My Info:   Win7_64, Nightly 49, 32bit, ID 20160526082509
1. Open url  "about:config?filter=pixelsper"
2. Click on the pref to select it (the line will become blue)
3. Hold Enter for 5 seconds
4.(bonus) Click on the top modal dialog. Press Escape once. Press Ctrl+T. Type "asdf" in urlbar

 Step 3 - many modal dialogs appear one above another, causing horrifying box-shadow around them
 Step 4 - top modal dialog closes, and focuses content, so you can freely navigate/type with keyboard

 Step 3 - no more than 1 modal dialog should appear
 Step 4 - when modal dialog closes, it should focus another modal dialog if it's present

Note:  I added Step 4 just in case somebody would argue that there's no bug in Step 3

I have tested this issue on Windows 10 x64 with the latest Firefox release (50.1.0) and the latest Nightly (53.0a1-20170103030204) and managed to reproduce it.
When loading the url described in the STR_1, selecting the pref and holding the Enter key for 5 seconds, many modal dialogs appear one above another, causing the box-shadow around them. I was also able to reproduce the issue described in step 4.
