Do we still want to keep the bubblewrap sandbox option disabled? It seems that it was fixed in trunk, and can be backported via a very simple sed:

https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202071

Originally, the rationale for disabling it was that we were unable to access files on the local filesystem. That was fixed by removing an unnecessary security check.

All we'd need to do is apply the following one-line change to our Source/WebCore/page/SecurityOrigin.cpp file:

-#if !PLATFORM(IOS_FAMILY)
+#if !PLATFORM(IOS_FAMILY) && !ENABLE(BUBBLEWRAP_SANDBOX)

Let's not turn the sandbox on, it needs xdg-dbus-proxy. We can re-examine the sandbox after release.
