Build ID: 20140716183446

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to do some app reviews yesterday:

* I went to marketplace reviewer tools
* select a packaged app that had desktop icon
* I hit the install button 
* I get a prompt in Firefox to install the app
* I hit install

Note: I have followed the instruction on for desktop using Firefox 31 and also nightly on both Mac and Linux machines.
Installing packaged apps on desktop had worked for me previously (last week)

Actual results:

The spinner keeps going for a while then install failed silently and the button text turns back to "install"

I tried with a few different packaged apps in the queue and I get the same results. For example, I tried installing the packaged app called "Flappy thirds" on my keon and it worked, but same app did not install on desktop.

Expected results:

Installing packaged app on desktop via reviewer tools should finish and button text should turn to "launch"
whats the error in the Browser console?

I do not see any error in the console before or while trying to install the app. I only see a warning:

`Use of getUserData() or setUserData() is deprecated.  Use WeakMap or element.dataset instead.`

when opening the app view, but I dont think that is related. Am I supposed to do something to get debug information in browser console?

I checked again just now and the `dom.mozApps.use_reviewer_certs` was not present. I am sure I had added that boolean property earlier and had it set to `true`, not sure how it had disappeared. I added the property again and now the install is working.
