User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.22; Mac_PowerPC) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 The concept of sheets was that they were document-centric; I believe this applies at the window level of Mozilla. If preferences are set to ask before cookies are accepted, a prompt sheet is displayed in the current window. This is normal when only a single window is open. When a link is selected to be opened in a new window, any cookie request for that site should have its prompt sheet displayed in the new window. Problem occurs when manually simulating Opera's "open in background" browsing. If a link is selected (via popup menu) to open in a new window and the new [child] window is switched to the background before the page is displayed, the cookie prompt sheet will erroneously be displayed on the parent window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select any page with link to site requiring cookies 2. Ensure cookies must be asked before accepted (via preferences) 3. Select 'open in new window' (via popup menu) for above site link 4. As soon as new window appears, reselect original window (which again becomes frontmost). Actual Results: Cookie sheet displayed on original [parent] window Expected Results: Cookie sheet should have been displayed on new [child] window
