STR: 1. Start Nightly. 2. Go to Menu -> Tools -> Apps. 3. Select the Market Place link. 4. Download any of the free apps like Twitter or Wikipedia. 5. Close the tab. 6. Close Nightly. 7. Execute one of the shortcuts created on your home screen for the web app just installed. Expected: It should be accessible like any web content in Firefox. Actual: TalkBack says "Web app", but nothing is accessible. Tis is a regression, it used to work just fine. No regression range known yet, but I suspect it may have something to do with the way we load tabs or content scripts or the like.
The same happens if you bring up Menu -> Tools -> Apps after you installed an app, and then double-tap one of the installed apps. It also launches the external shortcut as the home screen does, and even when launched from Nightly, the app itself is not accessible.
It turns out that each instance of Firefox does manage its own set of web apps. I was able to determine that Firefox 23 Beta and Firefox 24 Aurora are not affected by this bug, but this is a recent regression introduced after the merger on June 24 where Nightly became Firefox 25.
