I don't want remote content (websites, mails etc.) to ever interfere with my
ability to interact with the browser, e.g. by the site disabling the main menu
or context menu. This is a tracking bug to remove offending code or make it
strictly optional.

This bug is a duplicate of bug 86194 or the other way round. Both bugs are meta
bugs and both are about the same thing: Give users all the power and not the
page. Since this bug seems to not have been used for quite a while, while 86194
is still regularly used as meta bug, I'm suggestion to mark this one as a
duplicate of 86194. Has anyone any reason to vote against doing that?
tgos, you can see that both bugs were filed by me in sequence and that this bug
blocks the "power for users" bug. I considered this a subset of that bug.

I was meant to organize bugs a bit. Unfortunately, it seems that people didn't
see the distinction and just added all bugs to the "power for users" bug and not
here (and so indirectly to the power for users bugs) as it was intended.

I am reluctant to "fix" the dependencies, because that triggers a lot of spam.
Suggestions, opinions?
> Suggestions, opinions?

I'd say either fix the dependencies or close this bug. As it is now, this bug is
more confusing than good.
s/this bug/the lack of distinction between this bug and bug 86194/
Well, this bug here has only two dependencies open. So I suggest to move them
over and close this one.
