User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

When a page uses frames, it is impossible to "view selection source", you can
only view the page source for that particular frame when text is highlighted.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Highlight text in a frame
2. Right click to bring up menu, and click "View Selection Source"
3. Alternatively, choose "This Frame->View Frame Source"

Actual Results:  
View Selection Source fails to bring up the source of the frame setup (no window
appears) and viewing the frame source brings up the source of the whole page.

Expected Results:  
Step two should instead have listed "View Source" on the menu, so that you could
view the source of the frame setup and should also have brought up the source.

Step three's "View Frame Source" should be changed to indicate selection source,
and should bring up the selection from the frame, as it would in a normal
non-framed page.

Reporter: could you try a more recent build and check if you still see the problem?
