Steps to reproduce:

I am debugging an ajax web application with Web Console.

I want to copy the value of the target logged in the Web Console so that I could manually inspect it further. However, this option is not available and I am forced to take a more tedious, manual route.

Anybody who has debugged a complex web application in Firefox has probably experienced this at some point. It's a minor pain point, but it would make a lot of developers very happy, and the fix is simple.


Actual results:

There is no way to copy the URL! I have to log the entire body, paste it into a text editor and manually extract the desired URL every time.


Expected results:

There should be a right-click menu item to copy the target URL.

Initially, I beleived that 'Copy' would copy just the URL, but in fact it copies the entire response as a log item, ex:

[13:13:26.474] GET http://input.mozilla.org/media/img/sharing.png [HTTP/1.1 200 OK 114ms]

All this needs is an option to simply copy the target URL.
