Description

3 years ago
In bug 851693 comment 5 (and subsequent comments), it was discussed that there should be a prompt to notify the user that a new page will be opened. While handling the actually intent uri seems fairly straight-forward, displaying the prompt is less so, hence the breakout from bug 851693.

Actually, I never bothered to try it - it *just works* if we don't block on having a specific package set.

Interesting, even if there's only one app to handle the intent installed? Android still prompts? I would have thought you would need to explicitly use a Choocer intent to always get it... http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/Intent.html#createChooser%28android.content.Intent,%20java.lang.CharSequence%29

Looking at the comments from bug 851693, it seems I got the UX concerns backward - I was concerned about not showing a dialog when there are multiple applications installed (yeah, I'm not sure how I thought that made sense either).

I filed bug 1173147.
