Any way to set new Firefox windows in a defined workspace letting the dialogues open in the current one?

I use Selenium to test a web application and while testing is annoying because it opens a lot of windows in my current workspace, if I configure Firefox to open in other workspace with i3, the Firefox dialogues also goes to that workspace which is annoying too, any ideas?

See the beginning of Section 6 in i3 User’s Guide. In particular, search for "The criteria which are currently implemented are..." Using the command tool xprop, you can then figure out if there is a feature that differentiates the two types of windows. Good luck!
