Web developer network tab breaks first-party isolation in some cases
There are rare cases where the first-part isolation breaks if the Web developer Network tab is open. This got first reported on our blog: https://blog.torproject.org/blog/tor-browser-65a5-released#comment-224102
Steps to reproduce (works both in the stable and the alpha series on Linux at least):
- Start a fresh Tor Browser and set the Torbutton log level to "3"
- Open the Network tab in the Web developer console (Ctrl + Shift + Q)
- Go to https://torproject.org
- Reload the page with the arrow in the URL bar

It is actually only the request for the onion heart that is affected. And having the Network tab open is crucial for reproducing the bug.
