In my case, the popups appear but then disappear within a fraction of
a second, and this happens about 10-20 times when running the full
test suite. So I don't have a chance to interact with the popups, and
this causes test failures.

Also, when running a large suite of tests, I may not be looking at the
screen by the time these popups appear. I wouldn't want the tests to
fail nor would I want the test run to stall.

I can't test this right now, but does disabling the "network" resource
avoid these popups? Though even if it does we'll still need a way to
run network-related tests on OSX.
