We did not prioritize this bug. Are the tracking flags meant to prioritize this bug for their respective firefox versions?

It appeared to me that this is a user-affecting change that would have a lot of impact to our release audience and that even just a backout might be necessary. If you believe otherwise please let us know.

In my opinion a backout should not be needed. Users can still clear the output using Ctrl-L and Ctrl-K.

Anton, you are assigned to this bug. Can you please submit a patch? Or should I do so?

Can the accesskey for Logging be restored too ? (L is free on all platforms to be an accesskey)

Restore accesskey from bug 892289

This is the same accesskey as for the Logging filter button.

Anton: As Girish points out, the accesskey "L" should work for "Logging". With what did it conflict in bug 892289?

Updated Anton's patch to include the removal of Cmd-K for clear output.

Try push:

If this is green, I will land this patch tomorrow.
lsblakk and Dão: I can make a patch for Aurora, but it means string changes. This does not seem to be a severe bug to warrant string changes in that branch - afaik, they are strongly discouraged. Thus, I have set status-firefox26 to wontfix. Users on Aurora can tab to the Clear button and they can also use Ctrl-L and Cmd-K to clear the output. If you disagree, please let me know. Thank you!
