User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.14) Gecko/20080404 Firefox/2.0.0.14

Suppose if you bring up the Print dialog to print a webpage and keep it open, now when you open a new second window and try to open a webpage, FireFox simply becomes unresponsive. If you click anywhere outside the address bar and press Alt+D, cancel the dialog and then try to open a webpage, it works.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a new FireFox window and launch any URL.
2.Press Ctrl+P and bring up the Print dialog. Do nothing and let it be open.
3.Now open a new instance of FireFox and try opening any URL.
4.Click anywhere outside the address bar and press Alt+D. 
5.Cancel the dialog and try opening any URL. It works.
Actual Results:  
In step 3 above FireFox simply becomes unresponsive.

Expected Results:  
In step 3 above, FireFox should open the URL.
