window.confirm() will not activate parent page (removed)
If a document in a background tab calls window.confirm() then the call to confirm() will return immediately with false, and no dialog will be shown to the user. If the tab is active, then the call will show a dialog. Specifically, this removes the ability to use window.confirm() to bring a tab to the front against the user’s will.
