Need to verify but I suspect this is just how firstboot behaves when an error is thrown and you're running it manually *after* logging into the system. (note that this is not how firstboot is normally meant to be used, only something we do for dev/QE testing)

I have seen this behaviour for popups after hardware profile reporting screens in firstboot, I think it's just an issue with how firstboot behaves if you're already logged in.

Need to test this but suspect this is a close wontfix or cantfix.

Acking 7.1
Comment 5 Devan Goodwin 2014-11-03 10:42:13 EST
Closing as firstboot is largely unmaintained now, and we are only considering critical fixes. 

Will be addressed for 7.2 by the planned port to new anaconda installer modules. More details in comment #1.
