Bug Description


When navigating to, the browser extensions (FF & Chrome) do not propose the integration with the website.

[Test Case]

* navigate to
* authenticate and verify that you see the calendar document view

* Expected result: the browser should display an infobar/dialog to offer to add a G. Docs launcher
* Actual result: no infobar or dialog appears.

[Regression Potential]

Low regression potential.

Explanation: The infobar/dialog now stays on screen until the user has time to act on it. The user can still dismiss the dialog via the standard procedure, either with the cross or by accepting / refusing the integration.

  * New rebuild forced

  * Set a timeout value on the Notification pop-up. We want the
    notification to last a little longer to overcome redirects. - It can
    still be clicked away, and will disappear when the location bar is
    made active. (LP: #1311848)
  * Offer to install webapp if the package is already installed (but the
    user has not accepted or rejected installation). (LP: #1311643)

Confirmed this in a fresh trusty VM. does not prompt integration before the update, and then updating xul-ext-websites-integration results in prompting for integration. Thanks guys!
