"This answer is really late, but this question showed up in Google for me when I was looking for a solution to this problem today. The solution I eventually found is here: http://userscriptsdotorg/scripts/show/23865

// ==UserScript==
// @name BlockUnloadEvents
// @namespace http://theaceoffire.8k.com/STOPTHEMADDNESS
// @description This stops ANY AND ALL javascript that stops you from leaving a page. Inspired by this greasemonky script: http://userscriptsdotorg/scripts/show/20781
// @include *
// ==/UserScript==
(function() {
unsafeWindow.onbeforeunload = null;

unsafeWindow.onunload = null;

//unsafeWindow.alert = null;

//unsafeWindow.confirm = null;

//unsafeWindow.prompt = null;

//unsafeWindow.open = null;
