In Firefox 55, Firefox added code to speculatively connect when a user mousedowns over a link. We should verify that the early connection does not bypass first party isolation (if it does, it seems like we would have noticed by now... but we should double-check).

This should be fine. It speculatively connects passing NodePrincipal() which contains OriginAttributes.
