When privacy.trackingprotection.enabled = true, the Web Console should show a message for each resource that is blocked.  This would make it much easier for web developers, Firefox developers, and Mozilla tech-evang people to debug pages that are affected by tracking protection.  It could also give advanced users some insight into what types of tracking are in use.

Would "Net" or "Security" be better tabs for these warnings?

"Security" seems good, since that's what we use for similar warnings such as Mixed Content.  Here's a follow-up patch to put Tracking Protection messages into the Security tab.  (I'll fold this into the first patch when I land it.)
