I use search activity a lot. I also use tab queues. Frequently (always?), I get dumped into the search activity after queueing a tab. That's wrong.
The search activity is singleTop. BrowserApp is singleTask. Tab Queue prompt is singleTop, Tab Queue task is singleTask. 

Only BrowserApp specifies a task affinity.

My guess is that Tab Queue and the search activity are ending up in our package's default task; when the tab queue activity finishes, the search activity is the next thing in the task.

Either TQ should be sticking with the launching task, or we should be specifying a separate task affinity for the search activity, or both.
This should probably be tracking 41 with tab queues.

I think this could end up getting duped with bug 1155911.

Add task affinity to search

Review of attachment 8602060 [details] [diff] [review]:

My understanding of this behavior:

* The search activity will show as its own task in the task switcher, named @search_app_name.
* Links in the search activity will open Fennec, which -- by virtue of its own task settings -- will be a separate task.
* Any links that open apps directly, rather than via Fennec, will be rooted in the search activity task.

That seems fine to me.

-- otherwise search activities for each installed Fennec will compete with each other!
