Before enabling the OBT we should do some minor string cleanup:

  • remove emojis in the title (same for Browser Console by the way)
  • localize settings checkbox
  • remove the warning WIP warning in the settings label
  • maybe rename the "Main Process" target in about:debugging (but I don't have a good name)

Spawned from https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1588050#c6

We were discussing whether we should keep the "omniscient" nickname when enabling the feature.

It really feels like an internal codename, and we are concerned about localization issues for such a name.
Proposals were:

  • Browser Toolbox (but we lack any distinction between the default one and the new one)
  • Browser Toolbox + some meaningful emoji (hard to find a good emoji to convey the meaning)
  • Browser Toolbox (all processes) (not easy to identify, not really a name)
  • Multi-process Browser Toolbox (might make people think this is a BT that uses several processes)

For now I feel like Multi-process Browser Toolbox is the best proposal here, so I am going to use it here. But feel free to keep suggestions coming!
