Reproduced as described. Blocking the first frame causes it to be removed instantly but blocking the second frame causes the first to reappear and the second to not be blocked (not expected).

Refreshing the page leads to both frames being blocked (as expected).

Mass-closing all bugs in Adblock Plus for Firefox module, the codebase of Adblock Plus 3.0 belongs into Platform and User-Interface modules. Old bugs are unlikely to still apply.
