Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.11; rv:45.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/45.0
Build ID: 20160303134406

Steps to reproduce:

1/ Open Tools->web Developer -> Network
2/ Make an ajax request
3/ Right click on the address and see that there is no "Open Response in New Tab" option in the context menu


Actual results:

no "Open Response in New Tab" option in the context menu


Expected results:

"Open Response in New Tab" should be in the context menu as it was in Firebug and you announced full Firebug features implementation starting from Firefox 44.

Yes, this should be implemented to reach parity with Firebug features.

Thanks for the report,

I do see "Open In New Tab" in the context menu. Should this be closed ?

This menu open the source URL instead of the Response content, I guess.

Yes, Firebug has two actions:

1) Open Response In New Tab: opens the response body in new tab. E.g. for image it shows base64 encoded binary data.
2) Open In New Tab: opens the URL in new tab (just like the current "Open In New Tab" action in DevTools)

This bug report should implement #1

The "Open response in new tab" feature is critical for diagnosing ajax POST responses, whereby the action is only valid once and the error returned is in html format.

I am growing very tired of sifting through html code in the response to find the code error and line number. Please add this feature!
