A malicious author can force (some) users to restart their browser with huge modal dialog

Doesn't the Esc key always close these? And the Return key? And probably the space key? You're right this could be an issue for keyboardless users, like Fennec running on a touchscreen-only device. The modality of the dialog might interfere with bringing up the on-screen keyboard (hopefully alerts are app-modal not system-modal). Given the size of these dialogs I'm not sure the proposed solution of adding a "cancel all scripts" checkbox to modal dialogs is a complete solution, so for now I'll leave this as a separate "trap" rather than duping to that bug.
Dupe of bug 115997?
This has been fixed with the new alert() system in Firefox 4.
