JSON response in devtools

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0
Build ID: 20170201174907

Steps to reproduce:

I have a webservice which sends a rather complex JSON structure that I used to view in the network tab of Firebug and now in DevTools.



Actual results:

The problem in DevTools is that it only shows the keys and the data type of the values. Usually, the keys are either numeric or random strings, and the value only says "Object", so I have to click on each and every one of them to actually find what I'm looking for


Expected results:

Firebug used to show the first couple of elements inside the value object or array, which makes it a lot faster to find stuff. I've attached two screenshots where the difference is visible
