What do I have to do to trigger those? Especially the many, many other ones.

You have to start testing your product ;), browsing the web with opened console and watching torbutton's INFOs in different circumstances. You don't like similar, but separate issues in one ticket, so some of them are in other tickets, blogs, remarks - all tests for "previous version" of FPI are also actionable. Why didn't you test Mozilla's FPI as yours - that's the question.

I am doing that for weeks now. If you file a bug just dropping that log snippet into the description as you did what are we supposed to do with it? And how are we supposed to deal with "and many, many others..." in this bug?

So, again, how can I reproduce the problem you reported?

And? Don't you see FPI violations (except for retrying downloads)?

Maybe, fix it? No?

Make this ticket parent for all regressions in FPI?

Open http://hpr.dogphilosophy.net/test on Medium settings (notice that DevTools suxx too), click "(click to try it)" near ""wave" file(".wav")". Isn't it easy?

This is no regression, see below. But that said #20685 seems to be the parent ticket you are looking for (in case there isn't already a more specific fitting your bug). Feel free to open child tickets for issues you find with steps to reproduce them. Thanks.

Yes, with steps to reproduce it is. FWIW: I see this in 6.5.2 as well, so this has nothing to do with Mozilla's First Party Isolation code.

I didn't write it's a regression. But you don't mind that Mozilla's FPI suxx, right? You just didn't analyze it yet, according to #20685.

And why is ext helper triggered here instead of playing wav in the browser (as others)?
