Comment (by sajolida):

 In the case of Tails, the fact that people might not be used to the way
 their pointing device and the window manager behaves, leads to many people
 maximizing their Tor Browser by mistake.

 See https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/15766.

 Providing an "Undo" or other mitigation mechanisms in the warning would be
 particularly relevant for Tails.

 What about having two buttons:

 [Undo] [Ignore]

 Instead of only [Ok]?
