Windows 7 64-bit
Tried with: openwebapps-06d12d4a7d-03_05_2012.xpi on FF 11b6

When clicking on some links in Sky Guide native app, nothing occurs. Usually in the browser version, it opens a new tab but in the native app, it doesn't respond. 

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Apps extension - Can be found from
2. Install the Sky Guide app and choose to install it natively as well
3. Launch the Sky Guide native app
4. Click a "Record" button (for the purposes of another bug, click somewhere else on the app like one of the page indicators at the bottom of the page first before performing this step)
5. Once the pop-up appears, click on "Sign up" or "Forgot Password"

Actual Results:
Nothing happens and no error message is displayed

Expected Results:
The user is taken to the right page according to what they want to do or what link they press.

Getting a permission denied when I try to install. Will need to get that issue fixed in order to test Sky Guide.

Looks like the behavior here is that clicking those two links open a new tab on firefox on a different domain. The correct behavior that should happen is the browser should startup when you click forgot password or signup. This is a duplicate of bug 707836.
