Details

If you drag something and a JavaScript popup box ("alert", "prompt", "confirm") pops, the cursor becomes disabled in every Firefox window, including ones that get opened after the pop. You can't click "OK" or "Cancel" to close the popup, and the only way to re-enable the cursor is through the keyboard, by pressing "Esc" (thus closing the popup).
