Description

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; Win64; x64; rv:25.0) Gecko/20141021 Firefox/24.9 PaleMoon/25.0.2

Steps to reproduce:

1. "View source" on a webpage containing a URL in the source (whether the URL is linked/active or just plain text)

2. Either left-click on the URL or right-click and select "Open in new tab"



Actual results:

Source for the linked page is opened.


Expected results:

While opening the source of the linked page is maybe the right thing to do, there should be an option available when right-clicking to open a rendered link.

This can easily happen when developing a website and wanting to verify that embedded links open the intended destination page.
