browser_bookmarks and browser_history tests are interacting with the appbar contextUI buttons directly by simulating clicks with the likes of EventUtils.synthesizeMouse(). Because we transition the buttons separately from the bar, context interactions are fragile (bug 904940) and the tests are prone to intermittent failures. While there is value in testing those interactions, it should probably be simplified and moved to an more appropriate test file such as browser_context_ui. Right now it's duplicated in bookmarks and history tests. Using APIs such as dispatchContextualAction directly can decouple us from context appbar and it's animations. Making the tests run much faster too.  http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/browser/metro/base/content/appbar.js?rev=83254f71904c#237
