On Nightly and dev-edition OSX + Win 7, I do have a context menu, but it is the markup view context menu.
Which is not really helpful here (mainly because the usual copy/cut/paste options are missing). 
We should indeed get a context menu more appropriate for an editable field.  

> 3. Right-click <body> element, click "Inspect as HTML"

I suppose you mean "Edit as HTML"
