Note: This only happens at first tap on the page
It looks like we need to add the same hack for about:apps that we landed for about:addons.

Are other pages affected, like about:downloads? I guess that doesn't have a link to a different webpage in the same way about:addons and about:apps do.

We should probably address the core issue. What bug is that?

An attempt for a real fix was made in bug 985867, but that got backed out. I think we should think about landing a similar hack for about:apps, then file a follow-up bug for a real fix, since I don't see a bug filed about that right now.

Here's the same hack fix we used for addons. I'll file a separate bug to fix this correctly.
