Maybe the related toolkit code. I've CC'ed Bill to this bug.

Attached patch fix-popupsSplinter Review
I guess it was stupid of me to fix the URI.spec thing at the last minute since I forgot to update the Android and Metro code. Anyway, it's probably easiest just to make the URI actually be a URI.

Also, I found another bug in the original patch where we were calling updateBlockedPopups with the wrong parameters. I think this could cause us to lose popup blocking info when switching between tabs.

I'll back out bug 933462 on aurora. Sylvestre wants me to leave it on beta to minimize risk.

Spoke with Bill about this. We're going to ship with this issue in 31, backout for 32 and let the new fix ride the 33 train.

The bad thing about this bug going to release in Fx31 is that after the blank page is shown, the browser is unresponsive until you switch tabs, if you happen to figure that out. Bad experience.
