As J. demonstrated in LC Global, you can dim the background stuff before
displaying a dialog.  Yours is slightly different because of the map in the
browser, so what if you had a "generic map" image that is super minecraft
pixelated to display in its place?  Just hide the group that contains the
browser, and reveal the generic pixelated image beneath it.
