Change - Add a view-source option into the app bar menu
The app bar settings icon currently has only Find in Page. It would be easy and great to also add a view source button into that same menu. Source of the idea: http://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/19x7up/we_are_the_firefox_user_experience_team_this_is/c8skqa8
Interesting idea. I think we should look at this for v2 or possibly leave it until we get extension support. (If we only have one item in the settings icon, we should probably float that item up to the top level. What do you think Yuan?)
Sorry my bad, there's actually 2 items right now and sometimes 1. There's a view on desktop option for web sites but not chrome pages. I happened to be on the startUI when I was testing it where there is only currently one (find in page).
I talked to Asa about this and he'd be excited to see us getting a menu item for view source. Kamil would you be interested in taking this bug? - It would be a new menu item in the appbar settings icon - It would not show up on the start page - When clicked it would open a new tab with something like BrowserUI.addAndShowTab("view-source:" + <current page ur>, Browser.selectedTab);
Sure, would love to take this one on! Thanks
We'll probably want to disable view-source for view-source: scheme. Looks like we allow view-source for about: pages. Any others to filter out? I guess desktop has a list and/or some logic for this.
want, but shouldn't block.
No longer blocks: metrov1backlog
Went through a few basics tests cases and ensured everything was working: - Ensure you cannot see the "View page source" item when viewing "view-source:" - Ensured that you can see the "View page source" entry on all the other websites (http & https) - Ensured that selecting the "View page source" would open a new tab with the source of the targeted website

Thanks for the review Matt! I can fix the changes tonight when I get home.
I went ahead and fixed the nits and landed this, since I was pushing some other patches: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=0f37e80c1e62 https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/fx-team/rev/ed1e204e1bcb
no worries! Thanks Matt, appreciate it.
