From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC; en-US; rv:0.9.1+) Gecko/
BuildID:    2001061314

After completing any Save File dialog (after selecting Save As, Save Link As,
etc. from a menu), a Saving File window appears.  Until the file has completed
downloading, I am unable to access any other Mozilla windows.  Attempting to
click on them results in an alert sound.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Find a file that will take several seconds down download.  While this is not
necessary, it allows more time for confirming the problem.
2. Select Save As from the File menu or a contextual menu.
3. Select a location to save the file in the Save File dialog and click the Save

Actual Results:  Once the Saving File window appears, it is locked as the active
Mozilla window until the download is complete.

Expected Results:  The Saving File window should act as any other window.  It
should allow the user to make other windows active.  It should also be minimizable.
Confirmed. This might be a duplicate of bug 83643. At least this is a related issue.

Isn't this related or dependant on bug #73812 After all a save dialog shold
appear as a "sheet"

we're not talking about the save-file dialog, but the progress window that 
appears showing the download. it's title happens to be 'save file'.

I am seeing this bug as well on the 2001070318 build of Fizilla.  The download
progress window is modal and will not allow access to any other Mozilla window.
 Tested on Mac OS X 10.0.4
Problem still pressent in Mozilla 0.9.2 on MacOS X, works fine on MacOS 9.1

Accepting bug.  Not necessarily a beta stopper but annoying none the less.  
Prolly just need to change the window proc so OS X doesn't think it's a modal

verified on OSX:
2001-07-17 0.9.2 branch.  Able to minimize the save as dlg, switch to another
application window within the build, and switch to the desktop (outside of our

mark vtrunk for trunk verification still needed. Asa, can you verify this on
trunk since you run the fizzilla builds regularly?  Thanks.

I'll verify as soon as we start getting OS X trunk builds.

Is the patch in the trunk yet? I'm seeing the bug on build 20001070515. If not,
any idea when?

it went onto the trunk long after 7/5, so i'm not surprised you're seeing this in 
that build.

Verified on the trunk with Fizzilla build 2001080613.  I started a large
download and was able to access and maninpulate all other open Mozilla windows.
 I was able to minimize the and restore the download progress dialog.  Marking
Verfied and removing vtrunk keyword
