Description Brent Fulgham 2021-04-08 15:28:26 PDT
CFNetwork, which is linked to the WebContent process, but is not used for actual networking operations there, attempts to read a preference value in 'com.apple.CFNetwork.plist'. We do not need to access these preferences outside of the Network process, and should not allow it.

Since CFNetwork treats this as a non-critical failure, and does not provide a way to hint that the preference read attempt can be avoided, we should just silence the report to avoid wasting processing cycles generating logging and backtraces.
