This is a follow up for bug 1151368

We are currently using the following code to manually block selected resources:

channel.cancel(Cr.NS_BINDING_ABORTED);

But, we could define a new DevTools specific error and extend the existing list here:

This new DevTools realted blocking reason would be consequently exposed to the user in the same way as other blocking reasons (CORS, CSP, etc.). See also bug 1493599
