Steps to reproduce:

Device details: OS version: prerelease

                Platform version: 45.0a1

Make sure you have an email message with a google doc link in it.
Open the google doc link

Actual results:

A confirmation message is displayed right after clicking on the link but after pressing ok (see the attached screenshot), the link seems not to be opened.Instead there is  FirefoxOS logo displayed.  Confusing behavior for user though, because the google doc actually was opened but the user needs to open the Browser to see it, is not automatically redirected to it. 

Expected results:

The google doc should be opened and automatically redirected to browser.

The email app triggers a view activity that should result in switching to the browser.  Since the link does end up opened in the browser, this sounds like a window manager bug/regression.

It's also possible this is a change in how the browser works breaking things, but I'll let the window manager devs weigh in first.
