 While working on fixing the testsuite (#27105) I ran into some
 inconsistent blocking behaviour of NoScript in a Tor Browser WIP build
 based on Firefox 77 beta.

 Basically, the issue is that with Tor Browser `Safer` NoScript
 configuration when visiting a `http:` page (containing a https: iframe)
 and then going to the `https:` version of the same page results in
 JavaScript being blocked, but it should not be. Manually reloading the
 `https:` page results in JavaScript being executed correctly.

 After some effort, I managed to reproduce in current Firefox 77 beta
 directly, more specifically:
 firefox-77.0b9.tar.bz2`. Tested with NoScript 11.0.26 and 11.0.25.

 Steps to reproduce (in a fresh profile):

 - Install NoScript addon.

 - Go to NoScript options page (either via about:addons or via NoScript
 toolbar badge).

 - Enable "script" option and "Cascade top document's restrictions to
 subdocuments" in the General + Default tab.

 - Still in General, go to "UNTRUSTED" and enable "frame".

 - Go to "Per-site permission" tab and add a new rule: "http:" and mark it
 as "untrusted" (basically, setting non-https pages as untrusted).

 - Open a new tab and visit http://alltaken.xyz/https_iframe.html

 - When loaded, open a new tab and visit

 - Result: JavaScript is blocked, but it should not be. When the page is
 manually reloaded (press F5), the script is executed correctly, and the
 `JavaScriptEnabled` text is displayed.
