Introduce UI for Options drop down menu in Network panel
Introduce UI for Options drop down menu that is directly available from within the Network panel toolbar. Some options like "Persist Logs" and "Disable cache" might stay in the toolbar, but less important options can go into the drop down. Also if there is not enough horizontal space on the toolbar even more important options can move to the drop down. Honza
@Victoria: which mockup is relevant here? This is one for the Console panel (and we might want to have unified solution across all panels): https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/2XEEY0RYA#/screens/263400464 And this one is for Network panel: https://mozilla.invisionapp.com/share/2XEEY0RYA#/screens/263401584 Honza

Hi Honza, Based on the conversations and informal testing from before, I think we determined that the gear menu setting with 'compact mode' is just for Console - however, maybe the situation with Network has changed due to the new throttle and HAR dropdowns? I don't know if they will be used seldom enough to warrant being hidden in a menu at all times. The second mockup you linked to, with an overflow menu that works like the new top-level DevTools tab bar, is probably the better direction for the Network panel, except that we should probably move the filter buttons into a second row before hiding anything into the overflow menu. If this is the behavior, the window needs to be quite small (like less than 450px wide) before any overflow happens. Only very recently could the window even get to be smaller than 450 in docked-to-side mode, so I would say this problem is fairly low priority.
(That's my current understanding - happy to discuss more if you think any overflow/option behavior should work differently :))
