Currently, cookie warning dialog for a window in the back does not come up to the front. Therefore, whenever a cookie warning is invoked by a window in the back, the dialog is hidden by the window in the front. This makes Mozilla unable to respond to any user activity bringing it to limbo, especially when the front window also is dimmed by another cookie or other warning dialog. Any dialog that disable other user input should be brought to the front. 2000103120 MTrunk and other recent builds.
This worksforme with 110104 Mozilla trunk build on Mac OS9 Here's what I did to test. Tell me if I'm not doing the right thing (and please include clear steps to reproduce in future bug reports) 1. Open two Browser windows both with about:blank loaded 2. Set prefs to warn before accepting a cookie 3. type cnn.com in the addressbar of one window which will load a page that will prompt for cookie acceptance. 4. quickly bring second browser window (the one still at about:blank) to front. When I do this I see the cookie warning dialog pop up in front of the frontmost window. When you do this you do not see a cookie warning dialog because it is between the back and the front window? Is this correct?
I know I did not specifically list the way to reproduce it, because I could not see the actual dialog, and did not know which window was causing it. What I am pretty sure so far is that you have to have more than one window with multiple frames each of which trying to get your attention, thus making the front most window/dialog unresponsive. I will try to find exact steps to reproduce this.
hirata masakazu, have you done any more investigation on this one?
I have not come up with a repoducible one. My impression is the bug has since fixed, because the multiple cookies dialogs now appear in two alternate positions so that the most recent one is reacheable and the next one is visible. This was not the case before. Marking as WFM on that ground.
