Issue 62: "Save Page As" in Firefox brings up float window in adjacent 
window in fullscreen mode

New issue report by mvanier42:
What steps will reproduce the problem?

1. Run xmonad in full-screen mode with or without the tabbed extension
2. Start firefox and go to any page
3. Make sure there is another window (e.g. an xterm) in the workspace
4. Select "Save Page As" from the File menu

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

The pop-up window will come up as expected, but the current window will
shift to an adjacent window in the workspace (the one to the right).  What
I expected to see is that the pop-up window would come up without shifting
the current window.  That only happens if there is no other window in the

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

Most recent xmonad darcs version (roughly 0.4) on Debian Linux unstable,
all compiled from source.

Please provide any additional information below.

I'm not sure if this makes a difference, but I have this in my Config.hs
file to make new windows come up to the right of the current window.

manageHook _ _ _ _ = return W.swapDown

Also, this bug seems to have only surfaced in the last few revisions
(sometime between 0.3 and 0.4).

If this error is due to a module from XMonadContrib, please tag this issue
with 'Component-Contrib' below.

I used the Tabbed extension, but it's not due to it.
