Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.3) Gecko/20070309 Firefox/2.0.0.3

When you change a password on a forum (vBulletin, PHPBB, Invision, doesn't matter, or even another non-forum website with authentification), Firefox displays a popup, asking "should I update the password for account ABC?", but there is no visual way to tell if that popup is from a website (via javascript or some other technique) or from firefox itself...

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. log in to a forum where you already have a login and password
2. go to the change password page on that forum
3. look at the popup and tell me if you can _SEE_ who is displaying that popup, is it the website, or is it firefox?

doesn't a javascript dialog from a website show the domain in the titlebar of the dialog?

Yes. When it's a Javascript sheet, it says "The page at <domain> says:" and the the message the page is sending. WORKSFORME.
