Can anyone recommend a Firefox extension that allows the user to track network requests across tabs?
In other words, let's say you are in Firefox, and you right-click on this link and select
Open Link in New Tab. In order to verify that the link really went directly to the GoodNewsNetwork, you fire up your trusty Firefox extension (the one you recommend here) to quickly see that there was no redirection.
Normally, this could be done with the Developer Tools, but the network monitor in Developer Tools does not track requests across tabs (or, if it does, please tell me I'm mistaken!).
Now, obviously, this example is a bit contrived. You could simply open the above link in the same tab. But often sites are coded to open links in new tabs, which prevents monitoring network requests using the integrated Developer Tools.
Note that a tool outside of Firefox could be used (such as Wireshark), but I'm looking for something that runs within Firefox.
Recommendations for gratis extensions are preferred, but recommendations for paid extensions are fine as well.
