Build ID: 20170118123726

Expected results:

Add an option to copy request as URL.

I don't believe this is the same Bug 1031956. In that bug the cURL generated for a POST is incorrectly being generated as a GET. This one is more a feature request than a bug in that I would like to see the POST request turned into a URL or URI (sorry, I get the two mixed up). Example:

Copy as URL would create the following and put it in the clibboard:


This feature was in the FireBug and unfortunately I got addicted to it.

Resolution: DUPLICATE → ---
I missed this feature so badly (for development) that I switched to Firefox ESR and disabled mutli-process so I could continue using Firebug.
Product: Firefox → DevTools
