Description Nicholas Nethercote [:njn] 2013-04-08 18:38:26 PDT
Once bug 848560 lands, gzipped JSON will become the standard form for attaching memory reports to bugs.  As a result, the "read from clipboard" function won't be much use, and we should replace it with "load from URL".

Since it's just JSON I don't think there will be any security concerns, but perhaps we should run this past a security person just to be sure.

Note to self: an XHR is the way to do this.

"Read from clipboard" was removed in bug 1127645. "Load from URL" would still be very useful.
