Google Maps (partly) broken with Iceweasel 7.0 and Torbutton 1.4.3

Description

As instructed in comment 10 of ticket #3879, I hereby file a new bug for this bug.

When TorButton 1.4.3 is active in a "vanilla" (or as vanilla as Iceweasel from Debian gets) Iceweasel 7.0 (same as FF 7.0), and I go to Google Maps, enter a search term, click on the appropriate button, instead of updating the current map, a new tab is opened. When I have NoScript active too, the new tab holds just an input box, if NoScript is disabled, the new tab contains a full Google Maps view where the search term is marked on the map (basically: I see in the new tab, what I wanted in the original tab).

Please note, that I haven't found another service with the same problem so far. This is not too critical for me, as OpenRouteService.org is working just fine, but it's a bug nevertheless.

Let me know, if you need some information from me.

Can you try this attachment? It seems to fix #4058, which I think is a similar issue..

Though, I have no idea why it fixes it, to be honest. I stumbled upon the fix while trying to debug it. Weird stuff...

Doesn't fix this bug.

Apart from that, I can report, that the backend of the CMS called Contenido (latest version) is also affected.

Ok, this time I actually have a fix: preventing window.name being reset for iframes. I believe this should allow links with target="name" attributes to properly function in all cases.

Can you let me know if the pre2 xpi works for gmaps and Contenido for you? It seems to fix #4058 properly.
