It doesn't work.
Neither the Network logging the Console. Should we disable that as well? How hard would it be to fix this? Mihai?

I talked to Paul in Paris about the problems with network logging.

1. network requests happen in the main process, not in content processes where the content actors work (including the console actor). So, we don't see any requests.

2. network requests in the main process have no associatedWindow property. The global console actor will show all network requests, from the entire system, without being able to filter them based on windows or apps.

We need a solution to have the toolbox connect to the global console actor and get the network requests for the app that the toolbox is attached to. Or we needed the content console actor to talk to the main process to get the network requests associated to the content process. ( i prefer the latter approach )

This needs platform work. Do we have an open bug for finding a solution?

See bug 917227 for solving the Network monitor problem. In the meantime, we need to disable it.

No more network panel on remote apps, still one on local tabs, looks good!
