When I search for a bug (yes, I actually do!), and find one, I like to review it
to make sure it's describing the behaviour I'm experiencing. Then if I decide to
comment or add myself to CC:, I have to browse the bug entirely within the
iframe. Perhaps there should be a link to open the iframe in a new window to do
more than look? Or maybe the iframe version could yield only pertanent
information -- the summary/details/reproducibility/disposition of the bug, and a
link would give a full version?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Search for any bug.
Click the link.
Actual Results:  
The bug was trapped in an iframe.

Expected Results:  
Open a new window or tab dedicated to the bug.
Any good browser will already have a control to do exactly this within the
browser itself.  Judging by the useragent logged when you filed this bug, I'd
say you're using a pretty recent Mozilla, which does in fact have such a control....
Right-click within the frame > This Frame > View Only This Frame.

*shrug*. 

this is not a mozilla.org:<anything> bug.

you can:
a. drag the link from the iframe to the main browser
b. drag the link from the iframe to any tab or the tab area
c. drag the link from the iframe to any window
d. right click the link and choose open in new <window/tab>
e. right click the iframe and choose this frame>open in new <window/tab>
f. right click the iframe and choose this frame>view only this frame
