I was looking at a first tab on ultimateguitar.com (on Firefox mobile on my nexus 4) when I saw the gray message box appear briefly at the bottom of my screen, telling me "installation complete". I'm wondering what was installed? the site apparently has an app but I didn't accept any installation and no new apps appear to be on my phone. I've also check Firefox for new add ons - none. Could this have just been a background installation of an update to an app I already have?

also, the reason I suspect something to do with Firefox is that this gray box doesn't appear when installing apps from the Google Play market and does appear when installing add ons for Firefox.
Nothing was installed.
Firefox does not have permissions to install apps on Android. Each Android application is in its own silo.
I see a message from the site to install an app for their site. I only see an install button and an x. Pressing the x closes the box without any such installation complete dialog. Clicking install opens Google Play which requires signing into Google Play to actually install anything to your device.
