Summary: Technique to circumvent bug 61098 fix → confirm dialog circumvents bug 61098 fix
i checked the nightly build and this bypassed the checkbox style dialog suppression (as well as all the addons i've tried). i've also tested with chromium and it suppresses dialogs across automatic reloads (not across manual reloads). it seems like a good idea to look into how chromium does this and implement it's method. forwarding via meta tags (to itself) may also bypass the fix.
1.9.1 and 1.9.2 are unaffected since bug 61098 hasn't been fixed on those releases. I wonder how fast this can work, iow how fast the reload is for a page in the cache with a picture and some text...
alert/confirm/prompt all can circumvent bug 61098 fix using this technique. I have not created test for alert() just because once somebody accidentally goes in, it will be difficult to come out.

Not blocking on this. If someone provides a safe patch it will be considered though.
