Bug 1464667 - Remove plaintext tag from HTML. r=mkmelin a=jorgk

/* Most of this code is copied from mimethsa. If you find a bug here, check that class, too. */

/* This runs the entire HTML document through the Mozilla HTML parser, and
   then outputs it as string again. This ensures that the HTML document is
   syntactically correct and complete and all tags and attributes are closed.

   That prevents "MIME in the middle" attacks like
   The base problem is that we concatenate different MIME parts in the output
   and render them all together as a single HTML document in the display.

   The better solution would be to put each MIME part into its own <iframe type="content">.
   during rendering. Unfortunately, we'd need <iframe seamless> for that.
   That would remove the need for this workaround, and stop even more attack classes.
