Description Jason Smith [:jsmith] 2012-05-06 18:33:12 PDT

1. Go to
2. Install an application (e.g. BarFight, Dave's Galaxy)
3. Go to about:apps
4. Launch the application


The application should start on the launch_path off the origin of the app manifest.


The application launches with a URL as follows:


This results in many apps reporting errors upon launch (e.g. 404 not found).

Clarifying title - This applies to launching any application (about:apps or homescreen shortcut) on fennec native nightly on a samsung galaxy nexus. This does not reproduce on fennec native aurora.

Nominating for k9o, as this relates to basic smoke test functionality not working with the android web runtime in fennec native.

Note - This bug reproduces on desktop as well when you launch a chromefull application through This isn't a fennec native-specific bug - this is a cross-cutting bug that busts chromefull application launch.
