User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.0.3) Gecko/2008092414 Firefox/3.0.3

normally when clicking the favicon, the passport opens up and on a non secure (http) site, this is a gray color with just a "more information" button.  While testing this out, normally clicking "more information" brings up the page info dialog and closes the passport dialog.  The problem is (on linux only) this dialog remains open.  I have only seen this on sites that have a favicon and cookies (http://www.aol.com)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. browse to http://www.aol.com
2. click the favicon
3. click more information
4. observe the two dialogs open
Actual Results:  
the "more information" dialog remains open until you click somewhere else

Expected Results:  
the "more information" dialog closes down after clicking on it.  visit https://www.paypal.com for a working example.

this appears to work in windows.
This looks like bug 402415, which was resolved WORKSFORME without a patch landing, so I'd like to understand why it's come back.

CC'ng people who were involved in the original discussion - I can't reproduce this on mac or linux trunk yet.

This still works for me on Linux as well.

This is a side effect of bug 458579. When the page info page is opened from the aol site, a JS error "feed is not defined" happens. The consequence is that the Larry popup is not closed (apparently Linux behaves differently in this case).

Applying the patch from bug 458579 fixes the issue.
