If I have a large amount of data sent to a JavaScript alert box it is larger
than my screen height.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create an alert box
2. put a lot of data to it
3.

Actual Results:  
The alert box gets larger than my screen height.

Expected Results:  
In I explorer this is handled with an scroll bar if the data is larger than my
screen size.
How much data are you putting in an alert that its bigger than the screen?  Is
this some sort of debugging information?  In any case, there's no case for
modifying the alert size for an edge case such as this.
