I was reading n.p.m.wishlist, and I saw a lot of references to IE's loading source code in notepad. So here's an rfe. 1) Include the ability to hook the View Source command up to the program that is specified for "Edit" in Windows File Types (Win only). In Windows IE this is usually Notepad, Word, or Frontpage. 2) Include the ability to specify a program to view the source code in. (I would use xemacs on unix) Implementing this would give many users an advantage by being able to use their favorite editor to do all the things that mozilla view source does and more (cut and paste, syntax highlighting, regexp searching, etc.). It would also get rid of many complaints about the syntax coloring issue (bug 52154). As far as I know, the way IE does this is to pass the temporary file from the cache to the external program via command line. I think this should be included in mozilla1.0.
I found this also user friendly and I have filled out another [RFE] but this RFE had benn marked invalid :-(
