[Tracking Requested - why for this release]: Permafailing test on the next merge day.

I have no idea why this only affects Win8 runs, but it hit consistently across two different pushes :(. Can you please take a look and/or pass this along to someone for more investigation, Ryan? Thanks!

Passing this on to Brian who currently works on the console.

browser_webconsole_block_mixedcontent_securityerrors.js times out if browser_webconsole_allow_mixedcontent_securityerrors.js is skipped.
And skipping the "block" version just makes browser_webconsole_bug_752559_ineffective_iframe_sandbox_warning.js time out about 3/4 of the time. I really don't know what's going on with this one :(
Attached patch workaround patchSplinter Review
I've been using this patch to work around the issues at the moment. If we can't find anybody to prioritize investigating these issues, I'd rather just land it on m-c so I can stop juggling it in my patch queue.

Review of attachment 8902457 [details] [diff] [review]:

These are old front-end tests. We are nearly ready to ship the new front-end on all channels (currently enabled by default in nightly and dev-edition already). The new front-end has new tests.
We eventually want to look at these older tests again and convert those that offer coverage we don't yet have to the new front-end. However in the meantime, spending time fixing difficult test failures in old tests isn't looking like it's going to be worth our time. 
So I'm fine disabling those.
Thanks Ryan.
