This is related to bug 742944. I was asked by Dietrich to file a new bug.

steps to reproduce:
1. Launch Marketplace app on your b2g device (zte)
2. Click on the Login button in the footer

expected behavior:
Persona window launches and user can log in

actual behavior:
The ajaxy spinner is seen but nothing happens. This blocks users from logging into Marketplace app AND purchasing apps.

This is not a Gecko bug.  This feature has not been implemented in Gaia yet.  Here's the e-mail I wrote to Faramarz about this:

The necessary changes have not landed in Gaia yet.

Etienne tells me:

<etienne_s> jlebar: the only implementations are currently for*, *, 'attention') and*, *, 'background')

Dale and/or Ben plans to get to this soon for the browser; I'm not
sure they realized how many people we have beating down our door for
this.  :)

Justin, where is the bug to track this for Gaia?
No longer blocks: 766481
this will be solved by either or, more likely, native
Justin, is this commit sufficient, or do we still need to wait for other stuff?

That was the only thing we were waiting for.  But Etienne showed me a few hours ago that BrowserID crashes the browser when you try to log in on MDN with his patch, so there are likely other problems to solve.  Investigating is my top priority right now, but I can't promise a timeline at this point because (a) I have no idea what's going wrong and (b) I'm at the B2G work week, and we're having a number of important discussions, which cut into coding time.

I'll be sure to cc you on any bugs I file.
