I'm guessing this is probably a WebGL bug. I just moved it into the correct component.

Jason says this is a WebGL bug, rather than with the app itself.

Hello, Please mark bugs associated with 3rd party apps with [apps watch list1] in the whiteboard field.  This is the quickest way to flag pick up by our Apps Review team and communication to 3rd party developers.

Actually, I was wrong here. It's not a WebGL bug - this is an app developer bug. When you launch the app, within a few seconds, the app tries to install itself to the device using the mozApps API. Since we ban reinstallation of apps, trying to do this when the app is already installed will fire the REINSTALL_FORBIDDEN error, as we see in the logcat:

07-17 14:25:33.777: E/GeckoConsole(111): [JavaScript Error: "Error installing app from: http://jaydson.org: REINSTALL_FORBIDDEN" {file: "resource://gre/modules/Webapps.jsm" line: 1690}]

So the app should be instead detecting that it's within an app and not trying to install itself in that case to avoid that error.

Andrew - Can you fire a message over to the app developer about this problem?

Developer has been notified.

This exists on 1.0.1 as well, right?  At least, I can reproduce it on 1.0.1.  Is there anything for us to do here, or just wait for the developer to do the right thing?

No action on your team here. This is all on the app developer's side.

Lisa - Should this bug be closed? Developer has been notified but the app does pass App Review requirements, right?
