Bug Description


When in the webapp-container and the "network problem" dialog appears, the reload button does not work and trigger a reload.

A user is then unable to reload the page when the network issue is gone.

[Test Case]

- make sure that you are not connected to the network
- open a webapp (on touch or desktop)
- the network problem dialog should appear
- put back the network
- click on the 'reload' button
- the target webpage should appear

I have verified that the fix actually does display a webpage on reconnection to the network. However the page that is bought up on the whole is the desktop page and not the mobile version. I'm assuming the UA isn't resent on page refresh.

    In this instance the popup & navigation is granted, but then a
    redirect happens inside the popup to the real target url (here
    http://godzillamovie.com) which is not trapped by a navigation
