User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041031 Firefox/1.0RC2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041031 Firefox/1.0RC2 Sometime when I am browsing with multiple windows open, a window in the background will ask to set a cookie, but since it is in a window in the background I am not aware of it, but the foreground window halts for what seems like an unknown reason. I would like for when a website that is being browsed in a background window is requesting to set a cookie, the windows in the foreground continue to operate. Also if a website in a tab is requesting a cookie, the cookie request sheet should only popup when that tab is selected not before. Bottomline a cookie request in one tab/windows should not inhibit browsing on other windows Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Clear all of your cookies. 2.open a site that takes a while to load and want to set a cookie in one window 3. open a new window and browse normally, 4. when the site in the background is ready to set its cookie, the browsing sessions halts. Actual Results: firefox freezes until the cookie set request sheet gets an input Expected Results: see details above.
Summary: Mac OS X cookie sheet should not inhibit other windows → Mac OS X cookie set request sheet should not inhibit other windows from browsing
Myabe a dupe of bug 257546. But the bigger problem is that a sheet is supposed to be modal for its document (that's why it's attached to the window). But this doesn't work very well with tabs.
