Allow the user to copy, as a string, the name and value of a preference.
Priority: P3 → P5
Since we present the data in regular text fields, do we need this functionality at all? You can simply copy and paste them from the page...
Yeah, we've mentioned this before. Since this is part of the basic functionality of the page, we may still want to add specific tests to make sure it doesn't break in the future. I've updated the summary accordingly.
Summary: Add functionality to copy any preferences from the list of the new "about:config" → Add tests for copying preference names and values from the new "about:config" page
This makes sure that whitespace is copied to the clipboard when selecting the value.
