Steps to reproduce.

Write something in it.

If I remember correctly it would force kill in Tor Browser 6.0.

If you leave "Open File..." or other system dialog opened, then NI can't cope with it.

OK, I tested with a Tor Browser 6.5.2 and I didn't find such a problem. Regression? e10s? Anyway, putting basic tags for issues with tbb7.

Seems to be e10s related.
