Description

Bug 395465 resulted in a form of modality where users can create new windows during an application-modal session. Windows created during the modal session become modal children of the modal windows that created them, whether or not they need to be modal. We should only create modal children if the window needs to be modal, otherwise new windows should open behind the current modal window and not be modal themselves.

To see this in action, execute the following in the URL bar:

javascript: showModalDialog("http://www.mozilla.org");

Hit cmd-n to create a new window.
