In bug 1365032 I added a pref for opening noopener links in a new process. This bug is for tracking turning that pref on by default.

Currently my only known problem with this change is that SessionStorage is not copied into the newly created window when noopener is used. We're considering changing that requirement in the spec in https://github.com/whatwg/html/issues/2681
Depends on: 1372662
I've talked with bz on IRC, and we're planning to turn this on on nightly, and in parallel implement bug 1372662. If this breaks websites without bug 1372662 we'll pref it off again until that is fixed.
