In the new console frontend, The variables for an object is empty if it got opened from the context menu for a console item.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a page.
2. Open the web console.
3. Type |document| and press Enter.
4. Right click "HTMLDocument" and select "Open In Variables View".
Actual result: Sidebar opens but is empty
Expected result: object details shown

This works as expected if you leftclick the "HTMLDocument" where the object is passed while the context menu passes the actor string.
We are going to avoid using the variables view in the new frontend in Bug 1308566.  We'll keep this one open to track completion but it should be closable once that bug is fixed

The Object Inspector has now landed and there's no more variables view in the new UI, so going closing this out
