This page is the proof of concept for the dialog spoof bug that was supposedly
fixed with 1.0.5. After updating to 1.0.5 via xpi from 1.0.4, I still got the
spoof dialog popup. So I uninstalled and re-installed 1.0.5 from scratch (exe).
Same result.

Reproducible: Always
We can't stop the dialog from popping up -- there's no AI in the world that can
correctly distinguish legit from spoof dialogs. What we did do is put the host
name in the title so a user can tell that it comes from a different site.

Raising the minimum size of the small window would have helped keep it from
hiding behind the prompt, maybe we'll do that too in Deer Park.
