Security warning dialog box blocks traffic in other windows
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050610 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050610 My email program is set to use SSL to fetch POP mail, so site certificates are used. Since my connection's name is not the same as the server it runs on, the "Security Warning: Domain Name Mismatch" error is produced and I have to OK it manually. BUT while that warning dialog box exists, other traffic such as webpage accessing by the browser component and data downloading by the download manager are blocked. Data doesn't move in those other windows until I dispose of the warning box. This blockage can cause downloads to be stopped from the server and cause the download manager to falsely report the download to be complete. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start a webpage access in the browser or download in the download manager. 2. Switch to the mail window and click the "get messages" button. 3. Wait for the appearance of the warning dialog. 4. Switch to the window with the previously started action. Actual Results: One observes that the process started before the mail access has stopped and remains stopped until the warning dialog is dismissed. Expected Results: Mozilla should have continued moving data in the other windows while the warning box in the mail window waited for user action.
Duplicate of Core bug 74331?
Yes, the behavior is the same. I looked for blocking, security warning, and maybe dialog box, but didn't know the terminology the original report was filed with. Taking possible comments to that bug.
