Support for request blocking in the devtools


(Louis Lafont) #1

Hello everyone,
I’m currently trying Firefox as my go to browser after seeing all the cool stuff you guys have been shipping in the devtools lately.
I’ve currently seen only one missing feature that prevents me from being as productive as the chrome devtools.
It’s request blocking baked in the tools. I know there are add-ons but it’s not the same experience.
I’d like to be able to right click on a request in the network panel and block that particular domain/url, or with glob patterns.

Thanks for your work, keep it up.

Thanks for the comment!

I agree, this would be great feature. Reported here:

@dotlouis would you expect that the blocking persists even when devtools is closed or is your use case solved when blocking only works when the tools are open?

Only when Dev tools are opened. The goal is to help with debugging a website when requests do not go through.
