Description

20 years ago
As a matter of tighter binding and function access, I propose that, upon the
"Open File or Location..." dialog ("File" menu), a checkbox option labeled "Open
as Source View" be included.

You mean the equivalent of a view-source:http://www.yahoo.com in NC 4.X?

Matthew, should we do this?

Once bug 55583 gets fixed, I don't really see the point. Opening the page and
*then* choosing `View' > `Page Source' surely isn't that strenuous.

If you took this request to its logical conclusion, we'd have UI in the Open 
dialog for saving, printing, viewing Page Info without loading the page itself, 
changing the encoding, and a whole lot of other stuff which would leave ordinary 
people totally bewildered.

There's already an rfe spec to do that somewhere as part of a download manager 
bug.

I think an overlay to do this that all mozilla qa people could get and install 
would be ok, but mpt is right that we probably shouldn't include this in 
mozilla trunk.
