Description:
If the user tries to install a third-party keyboard from the Marketplace, the keyboard will appear to install correctly (the 'install' button will change to 'open'), but the user will not be able to access the keyboard. The user will not be given any notice that third-party keyboards are not supported. If the user tries to go back to the third-party keyboard's page in the Marketplace, the 'install' button will reappear every time the page is refreshed, even after changing to 'open'.

Repro Steps:
1) Updated Flame to BuildID: 20140728000238
2) Connect to data or wifi
3) Marketplace > Search or 'keyboard' > download a third-party keyboard (Thai used in test)
4) Tap home, then tap the Rocketbar search field
5) Tap the globe/En button to switch between built-in and third-party keyboard

Actual:
User is not given any notice that third-party keyboards are not supported and can become very confused.

Expected:
User is given notice that third-party keyboards are unsupported so that there is no confusion.

NI on component owner (Gerry) for nomination decision and assignment.

Also NI on Delphine if third party keyboard suppport is needed for localization.

I have no idea how this Third party keyboard is supposed to behave. I would probably ask keyboard team, so ni on :timdream for this.
I do know that Gandalf and Stas are working on language packs for 2.2, but I don't think this is related. Adding them just in case though
Flags: needinfo?(lebedel.delphine) → needinfo?(timdream)
The feature is disabled on v1.3/v1.4, so it's by design. Having no notice when the user tapping the "install" is indeed a bug, but since it only happen on v1.3/v1.4 we should mark this bug as WONTFIX -- since these two branches are EOL already).

comment 4 is not this bug as originally reported and it's likely a new regression. Please file a new bug for it (with exact STR), find the regression window, and nominate for blocking accordingly. Thanks!

(Keeping this bug open so we don't lost the comment 4 -- please close when it's done)
Flags: needinfo?(timdream) → needinfo?(onelson)
Add regressionwindow-wanted keyword. Please follow the steps mentioned in comment #7.
Flags: needinfo?(gchang)

Marking it won't Fix according to Comment 7, tracking the new issue in bug 1124265 and moving the window request there.
