User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Went to a site that required a password that I did not know.  A box popped up requesting id and password with an enter, cancel and close button.  Tried to close or cancel the pop-up box and it respawned endlessly faster than I could close the dialog box and then close tab.  With the pop-up box up, the browser was essentially locked up.  I was forced to <CTRL><ALT><DEL> Firefox to get out of the loop and then not restore the page that was causing the problem.

Reproducible: Didn't try
