Note: Implementation followup from design Bug 878566
Spec: https://github.com/vtsatskin/FX-Captive-Portals-Design/blob/master/design/spec.md

As part of Firefox's Captive Portal Design, this bug replaces all newly-opened tabs and newly-opened windows' content area with the captive portal.

Acceptance criteria:

- If a captive portal is detected and the user is not logged in and able to access the web, each new tab and window the user creates displays the captive portal, with a link to override the portal and display Firefox's default new tab page

WONTFIX because replacing these pages with the login page would be confusing/surprising to the user. See bug 1202680 comment 4.
