This bug mainly effects developers trying to debug, disallowing them from seeing the alert before a page refresh, back button press, or form submit, etc. It can be circumvented by setting prompts.tab_modal.enabled = false in about:config. This will at least allow one to view the alert, but won't stop the refresh.
