User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a; MultiZilla v1.1.32y) Gecko/20021110
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a; MultiZilla v1.1.32y) Gecko/20021110

I'm using Gnome 2.0.2 with the Metacity window manager. When i click on a link
to a file I want to download and change the workspace I'm viewing, the download
dialog correctly(?) appears on the (new) workspace I'm viewing at the moment.
But when I click on the save button, the 'save as'- dialog appears on the same
window that the mozilla window I shift-clicked on is in. Since the download
dialog stays visible and *remains clickable* I can click 'save' for a number of
times and each click will spawn another save as window on that other workspace I
cannot see at the moment. This can be somewhat confusing at the save
as dialog should appear in the same workspace as the download dialog.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click on a link to a file that which will cause Mozilla to ask what to do
with it.
2. Quickly change workspaces (or send the download dialog to another workspace)
3. When the download dialog appears, click save. The save as dialog will appear
on the "wrong" workspace.
4. Click save some more to create more save as dialogs you cannot see.

Expected Results:  
Show the save as dialog on the same workspace as the download dialog. Perhaps it
should me modal too.

Perhaps I should also mention that this is a gtk2 build from,
and that it appears without multizilla as well. 
does this problem still exist?

I have been using the galeon 1.3 series lately, and my linux box is out with a
broken mobo at the moment, so I havent tried since last year and I can't try for
another few weeks. I'm also stuck on with a modem during summers, so I won't
download anything newer then 1.3.1, which I currently have. I'll try to remember
to test this as soon as I can, however.

Just tested this with Firefox 1.0.7 on Linux. The bug is still there if Firefox
is set to ask where to save every file. Its partially fixed in that the
"Opening" dialog now always appears on the same workspace as the Firefox window
that opens it. Still, if I move the Opening dialog to another workspace the Save
as-dialog appears on the original workspace with the Firefox window and I cant
see it as I press save. 

Since I now have to move the Opening dialog by hand to see this bug its unlikely
anyone would get confused about this.
