Opens a child modal dialog. Usually this method would be used to allow the user to configure advanced options. The arguments are similar to the window's openDialog method except that the window name does not need to be supplied. The <var>url</var> should be a XUL file. If the child dialog is also a prefwindow, set its type attribute to child so that preferences will be saved properly when the main dialog is closed.

Why does MDN look different?
MDN is changing to focus just on documenting web technologies. All the same great content is still here; we’re just changing some visual elements and navigation, to help you more quickly find the web technology docs you’re looking for.
But don’t worry, MDN and Mozilla are still together! In fact, we're updating MDN’s look to reflect Mozilla's new logo and colors.
