Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20090122 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20090122 Shiretoko/3.1b3pre

At the moment, when pressing Ctrl+U, it always acts as "View Page Source". I suggest the following behavior: make it act as "View selection source" if something in the page has been selected.

I reckon this would probably complicate the code a little bit, but I think it could still be nice. And it's the behavior I personally expected, but that may just be me.

What do you think?

Reproducible: Always
I searched for a key combination assigned to "View Selection Source" or an obvious duplicate of this bug but was not (yet) able to find it.
