Summary: Should window.open() inherit firstParty → Should window.open() inherit firstPartyDomain?

The reason for my comment was that it might simplify the setup a bit. It would be guaranteed that top level content docshell has empty fpd always. Easier to assert random things and such.

P1 to investigate and then re-triage.

We don't want window.open to inherit the first party domain. That's be confusing to users (Why is this gmail tab not logged in? How come when I login to it, but then type gmail.com in a new tab I'm still not logged in?) and would allow the window.open-ed domain and the opening domain to share state as well as communicate. (Communication is only possible if restrict_opener_access is off though.)

It would be interesting to know; however, if relaxing this would solve some of the breakage situations. If it did, I still don't think we should relax it, but at least we would understand better why things break and how to recommend changes.
