r=law for the plan and design I've posted some comments on design alternatives to n.p.m.browser.
Added separate plan page for this at http://mozilla.org/xpapps/MachVPlan/Context_Menu_Options.html Forgot to list suggested requirements: * Ability to set image as wallpaper * Ability to save a page as text only or complete with images * Ability to send page * Ability to edit page in composer * Investigate/spec out alternative ways to expose context menu functionality P2/096
Priority: -- → P2
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9.6
You may want to collect the number of other bugs on these proposed features which are lying around Bugzilla, and which have much useful discussion in them. To start you off, the Set As Wallpaper bug is bug 41526. Gerv
How was the decision within Netscape made to have these items in the context menu (as opposed to anywhere else) for Mach V? Only one of the five (Set As Wallpaper) is context-sensitive. Gerv
Thanks Gerv, I did see that, but wasn't sure if it was a good idea to just reassign it and make it a dependency. As for a 'decision', there has been none so far, only some suggested requirements from marketing, and an engineering plan-in-progress. I put all this out onto mozilla.org/Bugzilla so we could get the plan right. Thanks for helping! We're already discussing your last comment in n.p.m.browser...
Also see bug 103591 "Improved Image Managent".
Depends on: 26939
Please don't fixate on the summary, that was just how the feature request came to us, and is not necessarily how these commands will be exposed. In any case, discussion of how to do this belongs in the newsgroups, not in this tracking bug.

Attachment #55041 - Flags: review+
This patch checked in.
there's now a crash on mail startup: bug 107334
This patch includes 3 ^M in editor/ui/composer/content/editorNavigatorOverlay.xul
> 2) Save Page as Text The conversion functionality already exist in the nsPlainTextSerializer in layout (or is it content?) It is used by mail but also by copy/paste (try to select a full page, copy and paste into your favorite text editor (emacs)). Its functionality is much better than NS4.x' but it's not a full layout engine which would be necessary to make "perfect" text output. Akkana among others would know how to use it. I only know how it works. :-)
This caused bug 107568
nsIDocumentEncoder (with a mime type of text/plain) is the currently recommended API for getting at the plaintext serializer. But there are plans in the works to integrate this with other APIs; JST says there's a standard document-saving interface being considered by the W3C, and we want to try to track that if we can get a preview of it.
context menu items do not work in composer. Please see bug 108084 Is 108084 a DUP of this bug?
also as per n.p.m.general - block images from this server are gone from the browser context menu.
Depends on: 42441
looks like blocked images had returned a few days later between 11-04 and this comment 11-11 builds from hidden context menu problems.
Target Milestone: mozilla0.9.6 → mozilla0.9.7
2 and 3 (save as text, save with images/etc) should simply be added to the current save dialog, with "Save entire page" the default, so it's exposed more. "Save HTML only" and "Save as plain text" would be selectable from a dropdown. I think this is in line with IE.
sending to joe, as he has the remainder of this work.

> 1) Set Image As Wallpaper How about puting this in page info->images? Page info has a lot of potential but doesn't do or show anything useful right now. I can't even block/unblock/save images from there. > 4) Send Page, Edit Page These are not context operations. Why isn't this being integrated with the current work at http://mozilla.org/projects/ui/menus/shortcut/ rather then being tacked on the the awful current menus.
please pay attention to comment 9.

This bug is targetted for M101. Should we remove it from blocking Bug 102472, since its current target is outside the dev window for the next release?
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0.1 → mozilla1.0
all of these context menus are in already
