I have an SSL-encrypted IMAP server that I connect to.  However, the certificate
is for a different site than the server (but within the same domain @  This causes the Domain Name Mismatch dialog to come up, but the
dialog does not take the foreground.  This is a problem because when the dialog
appears but is not clicked on, you can switch between the different Moz apps
fine, but none of the networking will work - Browser won't browse, Mail won't
load anything.  And it's a pain to find the dialog.

My (inexperienced) proposed solution: Force the Domain Name Mismatch window to
take the foreground.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Have encrypted IMAP server with a different certificate than the server you
connect to
2.Connect to it
3.Domain Name Mismatch dialog should come up

Actual Results:  
The stated dialog comes up, but is not always in the foreground.

Expected Results:  
The dialog should be forced to the foreground.
I get this as well (but don't have access to change status to NEW).

Things on this front are getting better because most modal dialogs are being
replaced by "in page/in tab" error messages. The domain name mismatch one not
yet as far as I know. Duping to bug 74331.
