There is no supported way to do this other than to open a new Tab and copy/paste/drag/drop the URL from another Tab. I want the ability to duplicate a Tab which loads the same page (and possibly the same content including any filled out forms). It is best if the option is put on the context-menu (right-click menu) which says "Duplicate Tab". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Expected Results: Add a menu option "Duplicate Tab" to the context-menu of the current tab.
You can already do this in several ways: 1. Go to the URL and hit Ctrl Enter. 2. Drag and drop the proxy icon (to the left of the URL text) to the tab bar. Are these sufficient or do you have to have a menu option? (Which will probably get marked WONTFIX.) If the workarounds are okay, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME.
There's already a bug report asking for this feature....
Option 1: (Ctrl+Enter) will open the page in a new window on my system; not a new Tab. (maybe it's just my settings. dunno) Option 2: is what I am currently using but I would like to see a menu item because it is quicker. Using the proxy icon drag technique takes 3 steps. (a) New Tab; (b) Switch back to old Tab; (c) Drag proxy icon; I hope to achieve this in 1 step. If this is a duplicate request, could someone post the id?
According to bug 194178, comment #1 there are several bugs about this issue. Can we agree upon marking this as dupe of one of them?
