#30932 new enhancement

Allow Selenium using the performance timing API

Reviewer: Sponsor:


We want to have some measurements about various stages of a page load when using Selenium to instrument Tor Browser. Right now, in order to use things like the Navigation Timing API we have to fully disable Resist Fingerprinting Mode which is unfortunate as it does not give us a Tor Browser as users are having which is skewing our measurements results.

We should make it possible to enable selected features we disable with Resist Fingerprinting Mode if run, say, in a testing environment.

We may not need this ticket for #31005, but I don't have enough information about the other testing framework and I don't know if they used a similar approach or something different.

I'll be optimistic for now.

Replying to sysrqb:

I'll be optimistic for now.

Another idea I had was being sneaky and work on that while doing the ETP work for OTF (where we want to measure our success anyway).
