It's not covered by a spec yet, but here's the issue.

If an app has an ongoing inline activity, what should be displayed on it's identification overlay? The icon+name of the app? The icon+name of the app providing the activity?

Also if there's a popup with same-origin / off-origin contents.
Flagging Rob for Sheets overlay clarification.

Hi Etienne - It would be the name of the original app as opposed to the inline activity. So, if I were attaching an image to an email, for example, the overlay would be for the email app. Another example might be creating a gmail account when the browser sign-in is in the foreground. In this case, again, email would show in the overlay. Let me know if there are any strange edge cases that I might need to reconsider. - Rob

Oh, and by the way, a link to a website from an SMS, for example, would launch in a new sheet. So this bug would not be applicable in that case. You already know that, but I thought I should confirm just in case anyone else misinterpreted my explanation in comment 3. Thanks!

The name/icon is bottom most app but what about the screenshot overlay?
For example, open email app to select an image from gallery, and switch to another app, and switch back -
you will see 'email - email icon - email app screenshot' but after the transition is ended you will see gallery (pick activity). Isn't this strange?
Firefox OS is not being worked on
