navigator.notification.alert is firing on initial page load, but does not fire on subsequent visits to the page
add an alert to fire when page is loaded:
navigator.notification.alert("body of alert", null, "title of alert");
add a button to reload the page:
and a second button to call the alert directly, showalert()
NOW the problem:
alert fires on first pageload.
but when hitting the reload button, the alert does not fire.
when the showalert button is clicked, it fires the alert and also fires all the missed alerts from each time the page was reloaded
others have reported that when closing the app and opening it again, they see the alerts appear then (in my particular example i quit the app on close and do not see them appear later)
