When generating an intent in an application that is supposed to create the dialog popup to choose an activity to complete the action, it simply doesn't show. I get a darkened screen and no dialog.

For example: click on a YouTube link should popup a dialog asking to use Browser or YouTube (if no default is set). When I click on this link, the screen darkens like it wants to show a dialog, but it simply doesn't.

  • Posting this as a self Q&A because it was hard to find info about it and I'm sure it'll happen to someone else.

Solution: apparently there is a bug with this in Android 3.2. Rotating your Xoom will fix it.
