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.

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.
