Right now we have a XUL document that wraps the HTML document with an iframe. This is to support various features that don't work in top-level HTML windows (like size persistence, menus, etc). We are working through the list of these features in Bug 1460691, and once that is done we can remove the devtools.browserconsole.html pref and code to handle the 'false' case (including the browserconsole.xul document: https://searchfox.org/mozilla-central/rev/285da1fd7dcf67448b9175741fa330158edcff73/devtools/client/webconsole/browserconsole.xul#15)
I think there's a follow-up here around consolidating iframeWindow and chromeWindow throughout the devtools/client/webconsole (specifically BrowserConsole and WebConsole functions and there callers). Needs a bit more investigation around other callers so I'd rather do that in a separate bug.
