I updated Mozilla implementation indeed but I haven't modified Gecko's
code to handle the step 5. It's not clear to me why this is required by
the spec. Is there actually a way to test that behaviour? My
understanding is that if vibrate() is called, the previous vibrate()
should be cancelled so step 5 is mostly an implementation detail. Am I
missing something?
