Re: Controlling the browser environment/settings

I have never tried it but I fully expect WebDriver to get a little upset 
by this (note I havent tried this). With WebDriver, from the OSS world 
and from Marionette, we expect there to be a network so that we can 
speak to the browser (with FirefoxDriver we need to communicate with 
httpd.js and with Marionette we go in via the remote debugger).
