If you are on a call and you want to call someone else, launching the dialer app gives weird transitions.

3 states before answering the call:
- Dialer was the active app: no problem at the moment.
- Homescreen was the active app: problem.
- Another app was the active app: problem.

It's because system rather displayed the opened attention window above the attention screen opener window.
I'm confused by the terms you are using. What do you call "opened attention window" and "attention screen opener window" in this context?

Uh. Never mind. What's the proposed fix here?
I don't have one yet, I'm not familiar with the window manager yet. I think something like this should do the trick:

.attention-screen-visible .previous-app, .attention-screen-visible .next-app {
  transition: none;
}
:rik,

Did you get a chance to make progress here? Poking because its a koi+ blocker.

No I haven't looked at it in a while. I have other koi+ bugs that I believe are more important than this one. This one is "just" ugly (granted, very ugly).

Moving it to 1.3 giving the 6 weeks post FC.
blocking-b2g: koi+ → 1.3?

Alive, is this bug something can be done in before 1.3 FC? Or this is something mentor-able by you (e.g. [mentor=alive].

If not we will remove 1.3? from this bug.

Does this block anything? If not let's not put this in the bucket.
