Unexpected Behaviour With "Ask me every time" cookie Handling

Platform: Windows Vista SP1 x86
Browser version: Firefox 3.5.3
Tor Button Version: 1.2.2

Privacy Config:

Accept cookies from site - Yes
Accept third-party cookies - No
Keep until - Ask me every time

To reproduce:

Ensure no cookie exceptions for site:
Ensure no cookies for site:
Enable Tor and enter address:

Google will attempt to save a cookie. The browser viewport tab reports: "Loading...". The browser status bar reports: "Waiting for" Firefox becomes unresponsive and all attempts to interact with the browser are met with a Windows "Default Beep".

Because Google wants to save a cookie and because the config is to "Ask me every time" a cookie confirm window is expected, however it is not visible. Behaviour is as though the confirmation dialog box exists as a hidden modal widow thus preventing any interaction with the parent (the browser window) until it's closed. Only way forward is to kill the Firefox task.
