While investigating bug 1178859 I've noticed that when opening an activity from the browser app the associated process was not being correctly marked as an activity.

Further investigation shows that when creating a new MozActivity object the call is coming from the system app hence our logic in the ActivitiesManager will not flag the new activity as associated with the browser process but rather with the main process. This causes the browser process priority to drop too low making it potentially LMK'able in certain scenarios.

We should find a way to correctly match the browser process with the opened activity so that we can adjust its priority correctly.
