User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:25.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/25.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20131025151332

Steps to reproduce:

Simply go to this page.  One of many sites that is doing this type of browser hijacking.

http://fbi.gov.id665668968-5571779115.w6395.com/?flow_id=6342&355544=15763/case_id=16581

or

http://fbi.gov.id665668968-5571779115.w6395.com/

then try to leave it.


Actual results:

Had to close firefox with ctrl alt delete


Expected results:

-I should have been able to leave the page after one warning of "are you sure?" (you want to leave page).
-I should be able to turn off the warning if necessary.
-On re-open of firefox it open the hijack site tab again because it always tries to restore tabs when closed in this manner that needs to be able to be easily disabled as well
-Site needs to be blacklisted.

there is just going to be more and more of these sites please fix ASAP or I will have to use another browser and so will everyone else.  thanks
