Bug Description

In the new webbrowser app container, the step where we try to capture the user login fails which blocks the userscript from being run.

[Test Case]

* install the GMail webapp, (sudo apt-get install unity-webapps-gmail),
* make sure that the webbrowser-app is installed: sudo apt-get install webbrowser-app,
* enable the webbrowser container for webapps (touch ~/.local/share/unity-webapps/enable-webapp-container)
* launch the GMail webapp (that should be found in the dash),
* login in a valid account (you might have to go through and the proposed fix to allow proper contained login),
* send an email to that account, you should see proper integration w/ launcher etc.

[Regression Potential]

None really, this is strictly confined to this webapp, and not harmful in other browser contexts.
