Please see the tests in bug 341604 - i am looking for cases that are not being tested. In his first review of bug 341604 smaug suggested tests around navigation and the bfcache, so i am planning on adding some of those already.
I'm going to speak to dveditz about this again tomorrow to see what else we might need to do to land bug 341604.
Should we mark this RESOLVED FIXED NOW ? 

There's more work on iframe sandbox but it's broken out into followup bugs - I will ask for a security review on the followup bugs that need one like 'allow-popups', for instance.
For the record, when I spoke to dveditz, he was fine with this landing, we couldn't think of any more test cases that aren't already covered in the tests that are landing as part of bug 341604.
I don't think we have any issues with this landing, however, lets create dependent bugs to this bug for follow-up bugs just for ease of tracking please. We can still mark this as resolved-fixed and leave confirmed fixed until the follow-up bugs are done then. Sound good?
