Offline Error Dialog opens ten and more times when I go offline while loading a page (i think firefox shows the dialog for every element on the page, not one time for the physical page itself). Can be quite annoying to click away 10 popups every time my weak WLAN loses connection. by the way these dialogs don't popup at the same time! a new one appears after clicking one away.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load a page (a slow one might be good)
2. go offline via resetting the router or something else
Actual Results:  
try this with , a slow loading rich media site.

Expected Results:  
showing only ONE dialog.

my firefox has 10 addons. so maybe it's not a general problem.
