Hello Gustavo,

Unfortunately, we cannot use Epiphany or Midori but need to stick to GtkLauncher only. Can you please provide me the link from where 
I can get this patch? Also do you foresee any potential issue in using this patch with GtkLauncher.

Thanks and Regards,

The inspector requires more than just enable-developer-extras,
unfortunately. A patch would need to be written for GtkLauncher to
handle the signal and create the webview and add it to a container. I
recommend using Epiphany or Midori for your profiling, for now. This
will hopefully be improved in WebKit2GTK+
