To reproduce:
1. On N4 or TP, run Testr
2. Select Notifications tab
3. Under "HTML 5 Non-persistent notifications", tap any button.

Actual result: In output area below: "Notification.permission: denied" and notification is not displayed

Expected result: System dialog is displayed, allowing user to allow or deny the origin permission to display notifications
