Comment (by mikeperry):

 The HTTP Auth errors in the description indicate that this may be some
 weird dependency on JS usage of HTTP Auth by Google Drive. I wonder if we
 could isolate HTTP Auth rather than strip it for third parties. That might
 actually fix this issue. In fact, simply fixing #15954 to make HTTP auth
 stripping check be based on TLD rather than FQDN might solve this case
 without the need for full isolation.

 In the meantime, flipping the pref
 extensions.torbutton.restrict_thirdparty to false might fix it (this is
 the same as unchecking 'Restrict third party cookies and other tracking
 data' in the Torbutton UI).

 Obviously, this is not something you should run with your TBB long term,
 as it will disable all of our isolation, and likely breakthe circuit UI as
 a result (or at least make it incorrect).
