the performance fix 7131316 is backed out because it causes a hang with a citibank applet.

we need to revisit and reimplement the perf fix that works in all cases.

Verified fix using b118

EVALUATION The problem is due to the fix for 7131316 didn't handle the modal dialog case too well. When a modal dialog is up, it should also process the task(s) already in the queue. Similar code was already in MozillaPlugin class; the hang issue (7156918) isn't applicable to FF browser.
