Description

7 years ago
I see two primary reasons to interact with Permissions Manager. One is to go change settings for a specific site. The other is general clean-up and management. In the general clean-up case, it would be nice to have a way to easily visit the site to see, for example, why you have a password saved or some other permission set. 

Not sure the right UX for this. Maybe a link somewhere or making the item in the list a link or double-clickable or a context menu or something.

Or, maybe it's a bad idea and should be wontfixed :-)

I was about to file a bug for this when I found this one. I, too, would like to be able to visit a site directly from about:permissions.

On the top-right side of the page, you already have it saying "Permissions for <b>foobar.com</b>   xx visits".

That "<b>foobar.com</b>" part could be turned into a link. It'd be kinda intuitive since the word "visit" is less than an inch away from it.
Of course, this might need to take bug 658271 into account if that lands.

I don't think bug 658271 affects this, but the same issue of which scheme to use is a valid concern here. We could do something smart to look in the places db to see if there is an https URL stored, otherwise just use http, but this seems like it might be adding unnecessary complexity.
