Since we enabled the new about:debugging, we had several requests from users who wanted to debug the main process of a remote browser, but couldn't find how to do it with the new UI.

This is currently possible but hidden behind a pref: devtools.aboutdebugging.process-debugging. We thought the feature was not really used, that's why we wanted to hide it. But the early feedback seems to show the opposite.

Maybe it would be better to turn it on and once we have more data (from event telemetry for instance) we can decide to hide some categories.
