Details

Currently mochitest dumps all failures at the end of test for local builds. This is usually useful, but sometimes not, especially when you are doing something big and can producing tons of failures that you don't even care about specific failure, but more on the number of failures.

For example, current stylo build produces tens of thousands of failures just on style system mochitests, and it takes quite a while for dumping the failures after testing finishes, but I don't really care about them at all.

So I hope there could be an option to skip doing that.
That would defeat the purpose of mochitests, no?
When you have tens of thousands of failures... no. I just want to see the number, not the actual failures, at the end. You can always filter the log with actual failures if you need, right?
