    promptBox

    The promptBox object represents the tab-modal prompts (or alerts) on a given tab. It's returned by the tabbrowser method getTabModalPromptBox method.

    A tab may have multiple prompts on it; the tabmodalPromptShowing attribute on the tabbrowser will tell you how many prompts a given tab has.

    Note: This is largely an implementation detail; if you're developing an add-on, you shouldn't need to tinker with this. You should use the window.alert() method or the nsIPrompt interface instead. See Using tab-modal prompts for details.
