Do you mean modal dialogs created by Firefox or custom modal dialogs
created by your application? The reason for my confusion is that you
mention a login dialog. Firefox does present a login dialog, but only for
HTTP authentication, which is rarely used now. Is that the one you mean?
We decided to use Firefox accessibility for their automation.

Exactly what Win32 hook is this and what notifications are you expecting?
Accessibility communicates events via win events; see SetWinEventHook:

Modals like alert(), prompt(), etc. don't use separate HWNDs. They use the
main Firefox HWND. Looking at the code, I do see some cases where
MozillaDialogClass is used, but I've actually never seen this; it may be
legacy or just a wrapper window.
#32770 is for system dialogs which are not managed by Firefox.
Finding a Firefox dialog would be pretty tricky. Instead, I'd suggest
watching for EVENT_OBJECT_FOCUS win events (one of which will be fired when
the dialog appears) and looking to see if one of the ancestors has
ROLE_SYSTEM_DIALOG. Alternatively, I guess you could use
AccessibleObjectFromPoint, but you would need to do this on the main
Hope this helps.
