Context menu option to open selected text as URL
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021130 Some sites include URLs that are not enabled as links. Current practice is to select the text of the URL, right-click, Copy, open a new tab or window, Paste, Go. It would be slick to select the URL, right-click, and pick "Open in new tab" or "Open in new window". This could also be handy when selecting only the first part of some deep link to attempt to get a more general page. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select the text between the quotes: "http://www.foo.com/" 2. Right-click. Actual Results: A context menu with no "Go" or "Open" options to take you directly to foo.com. Expected Results: A context menu with Go, Open in new tab, Open in new window.
Hey, no fair-- bugzilla turned my sample "text" into a link!
Just a FYI: you can select a plaintext link and simply drag 'n drop it to some empty space on the tab bar (around the close button if you have many tabs open) to open it in a new tab. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 10080 ***
