User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.9; rv:31.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/31.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20140610163407

Steps to reproduce:

Opened up an object in Developer Tools that has a long string.


Actual results:

The string is truncated with an ellipsis in the middle with no option or preference to show the entire string.


Expected results:

SOME way should be presented of showing the entire string. Perhaps a toggle drop-arrow?

This is indeed a bug. The only workaround I know of in the meantime is to click the value to edit it and then copy and paste somewhere else.
