Need a reasonable approach to Android "Cannot Establish Relay Frame" error #1854

This error is displayed to users under several circumstances:

  1. The user has multiple browsers and does not have a default browser selected when they open the BrowserID dialog
  2. The user has a different browser set as default to the one they are browsing the RP with.
  3. They use the MIUI ROM

For Android users, it would be nice if we had special instructions with a link to MDN helping them to set their default like we have for iOS and disabled cookies.

4 star for better copy, and we go from there.

@shane-tomlinson , @lloyd , any thoughts on this?

It seems that most of the means of triggering the issue have been fixed (especially if #1047 cannot be repro'd on Android 2.x). That might merit demoting this to three stars, but it still sounds like a priority.
