Sandboxing the content process has revealed that it uses too many files and APIs. This meta-bug aims to track the specific work to be done on e10s to move those away from the content process.
Bug 1121295 is tracking a number of bugs along these lines that were found on B2G.  Some of them might be relevant to other platforms as well.

Bug 918680 is a tracker that also refers to using IPC rather than direct system resource access, but it was filed when the state of sandboxing was not what it is today, so I'm not sure what its relationship to this bug should be.

Bug 1105816 is tracking bugs that are blocking us from strengthening the Windows content sandbox.

Generally these are the first thing to break when using stronger settings.
Once these are fixed we may find other things that break.

Also, generally they are blocking strengthening the sandbox at all.
There will almost certainly be other things we need to do to get to a strong policy.
