When I try to open the Devtools Toolbox it opens but the "Rules", "Layout", "Computed" etc. tabs on the right are missing. After some seconds the "Browser Toolbox connection status:" is shown.

I see no error in the console.

Last good: https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/0daedafc7c204fc261f746775d24fa7ec81ab3a4
First bad: https://hg.mozilla.org/comm-central/rev/e544df90a3f3a56de390b0e0e3d20d3dffaf826b

So something must have changed in m-c, maybe how the Devtools are loaded.

It's bug 1586634. Strangely manually adding the pref didn't work but with the patch the devtools work again.

Thanks for reporting and finding the fix. Yes, we need to keep an eye on firefox.js to see thing like this:
