Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5

If the "Save a file" dialog box has the misfortune to appear just before a webpage triggers a "cookie settings" dialog box, Firefox will get stuck. Everything still works (downloads continue in the background, etc.), but the Download box's buttons will be inactivated (because the Cookie Settings box appeared)... and the cookie settings box itself will be inaccessible because there's a Download box in front of it! Instant catch-22-- and to get out of it, the only solution is to hard-quit Firefox.

Reproducible: Didn't try




This can happen on some websites that trigger pop-ups when you click on a download link.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.

You can also try to reproduce in Firefox 4 Beta 8 or later, there are many improvements in the new version, http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html
