Currently when a page is starred, the timeout for auto-hide (if auto-hide is even necessary) is too quick at two seconds. This should be raised to four-seconds or perhaps auto-hide removed.

This still has some problems if the UI is bogged down.  The first time the popup is shown, it can take close to 5 seconds (or more!) for layout to finish and the popup to actually appear.
I like this better.

Yes, was wondering why the reason for auto-hide in the first place.

don't auto-hide bookmark popup

We did this originally because the use case was: user wants to bookmark a page and move on

So it seemed like auto-hiding the popup was the best choice. Now it is easy to dismiss the popup with a tap, so maybe we don't need the auto-hide. I'd vote to remove it.

Madhava needs final say.

I think I could live without the timer.  At the time, as Mark describes, it was about getting it out of the way -- they're non-primary options, but the dialog helps to explain what you've just done (a lot of people out there still don't understand that starring and bookmarking are the same thing) and shows people that you can actually do these things.  BUT, given that the very next step for people is going to be to put a finger down outside the dialog in order to get back to where they were, the tap outside to dismiss isn't really an _extra_ tap/click the way it would be on desktop.

Maybe we should just remove the test altogether.
