Description

6 years ago
Firefox 6.0. Mac OS X.

I have a page. I select some stuff. I right-click : View source of selection.
I get a new window, with the source code.
I want a new window, empty.
I press Apple N. Expected result : as usually, I get a new empty window. Actual result : nothing.
I look in the File menu. Expected result : as usually, I find "New window". Actual result : there is no "New window".

Please unblock this feature.

I see no reason to forbid creating a new window in this way here.

I am persevering, so I manage to create my new window, thanks to Firefox's Dock menu, right click. And it is working fine.

Does not depend on bug 584031, in my opinion.

And actually, I prefer the source in a window, as it is now, than in a tab.
