    Description

      When the firefly connector stops ff puts up a window (that cannot be closed) saying i am
      "no longer connected to the server" I know this is about firefly, but I am still connected to NED,
      and lots of things still work (overviews and summaries) ...

      This popup needs to be reworded ("Your browser is no longer connected to the FireFly server")
      and there needs (I personally consider this broken in this condition) - to be a 'Dismiss' button on it.

          Rick and Xiuqin think we could put Firefly logo in the popup message and make it possible to close it.

          wording change:  " .... lost the connection to visualization server", adding a "dismiss" button.

          A YELLOW warning icon will be provided when browser is not connected to Firefly client, and message "Your browser is no longer connected to visualization server" when mouse over it.  

          For API usage, a tag "fireflyWarn" will be provided and application will decide when to position it.  Nothing will be displayed if application decide to ignore the tag.

          Implementation details. Text taken from LostConnection.jsx.

          When connection is lost, a warning indicator will attach itself to a div with an id that starts with 'fireflyLostConnWarn'.
          This means there can be more than one. However, if one is not detected, it will do nothing.
          When constructing the div, a 'data-decor' attribute can be set to affect how the warning look.
          <div id="fireflyLostConnWarn" data-decor="small" class="warning-div center"></div>

          Currently, we support 'data-decor' of 'small', 'medium', and 'full' with 'medium' as the default.
          small : 24x24 transparent icon with tooltips
          medium : 48x48 transparent icon with tooltips
          full : 48x48 transparent icon with the message visible

          For conveniences, there are 3 defined styles to layout the fireflyLostConnWarn div:
          warning-div right: horizontally right-align with a z-index of 300
          warning-div left: horizontally left-align with a z-index of 300
          warning-div center: horizontally center-align with a z-index of 300

          See src/firefly/html/demo/ffapi-table-test.html for an example of multiple warning is different styles.
          There is one on top center and 3 on the bottom. Search for div with id starting with 'fireflyLostConnWarn'.
