Some "nasty" advertisers use a popup dialog that says "Press OK to Continue" or something along those lines. I know the OK button will take an action I do not want to allow, but the advertiser is exploiting something in Firefox to infinitely generate new dialogs whenever one is closed, until I press OK. During this, the Firefox browser will not allow me to close the offending tab or the offending browser window, so my only escape is Task Manager. After this happens I cannot restore my previous session because that session contains the hijacker.
I have included a URL that generated a popup that had this behavior, but it may or may not show up repeatedly, and it appears plenty of other places online as well.
Please take action so that an open dialog cannot prevent a tab or browser being closed.
