Steps:

1. Load https://people.mozilla.com/~anarayanan/gum_test.html in a tab
2. Select picture
3. Quickly close the tab before the picture is taken

Expected:

The camera on the user's hardware should not become active - the tab making the picture request is no longer active.

Actual:

The user's camera still turns on with the tab closed.

Looks like generally we always take a picture no matter what right after the mozGetUserMedia is made, even if it does not make sense to immediately take the picture.

Expected to be resolved by UI. Connect to UI bug.

Not blocking due to comment 2. Will re-evaluate if the UI isn't sufficient to fix this problem.
