User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.2.10) Gecko/20100914 Firefox/3.6.10 ( .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

When you drag a tab to another location, IE to reorder it, and at the same time another tab is loading that prompts for a password (not a <form> password, but a built in username/password dialogue) then the browser freezes/behaves weirdly until you press the escape key.

Reproducible: Didn't try



Expected Results:  
Given priority to the drag event and not the password dialogue

Windows XP SP2, running Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:12.0a2) Gecko/20120307 Firefox/12.0a2, this behavior is still present, one can`t drag tabs to a different position if a site has an password dialogue activated. But i was not able to reproduce the freeze while the dialogue was active.
