GitLab is used only for code review, issue tracking and project management. Canonical locations for source code are still https://gitweb.torproject.org/ https://git.torproject.org/ and git-rw.torproject.org.
We have a patch from legacy/trac#25741 (moved) that claims to disable the GeckoNetworkManager. GK noticed the logic is reversed.
Let's land this in an alpha and then backport it to stable after some testing. It should be mostly harmless.
