    Recaptcha dialog boxes grabbing browser tab focus

    I've noticed for a few months, and largely ignored, that sometimes when recaptcha fails to load (I assume in the background on pages?), Firefox immediately switches to the AW tab to show a dialog box about the failure. It's a minor annoyance (so long as the PC is at home, that is!). Might be down to poor internet connection at times - I have AW autoloading in a session when I first start one of my browsers so there could be ten pages competing for bandwidth. It's just a little odd that a minor warning goes a little crazy - switching my tab like that!

    Ah... as the top of the box says.. "page at ....GOOGLE... says... not something AW can fix.

    What you could do though is block popups from google.com. You don't normally get popup's from google.com anyway so blocking those wouldn't break anything
    (Ad block, popup blocker add-on might be useful for that).
