Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:17.0) Gecko/17.0 Firefox/17.0
Build ID: 20121008042009

Steps to reproduce:

I opened a view source window of a webpage, and then clicked the URL of an image to display the image. This appeared in the view source window. I then wanted to copy the URL of the image. I reflexively pressed Cmd+L (Mac; on Windows, that'd be Ctrl+L).


Actual results:

The view source menu opened a modal dialogue to navigate to a specified line number, much as it would if I had pressed Cmd+L in a source code file.


Expected results:

When it's an image or other binary that is showing in a view source window, Firefox should rebind Cmd+L to pop down a simple address bar so the user can copy/paste from it.
