2. Tap on the bookmark star icon
3. when the menu appears select "Add to Home Screen"
4. Tap on system Home screen 
5. Open the bookmark from the home screen

Expected results:
- the page should open in the browser and all should work as expected.

Note: this is happening only if the browser is in background, if the browser is closed before opening the bookmark all works fine.

Tracking for 14 to try to resolve prior to 6/4 (if low risk). Otherwise, we'll drop this off the list considering we won't ship a XF14 tablet release for GA.

[Triage Comment]
Seeing as there's no fix up yet to nominate for Aurora landing before tomorrow's merge of FF14 to Beta, I'm removing tracking. We will be shipping a XF14 Beta, but I wouldn't call this a blocker.
