This is because of the process split in WebKit2, where fetching content
is done in the WebKitNetworkProcess, which means that the libsoup usage
cannot be directly made in the so called “UI Process” (e.g. a browser)
where the public API is used.

I think what you would need is to watch bug #164509 of which I think
this is a duplicate (but feel free to reopen otherwise).
