Details

In an early iteration of the patch for bug 929349, we were using HTML which is copy and paste-able by default. In the process of adopting widget methods we started using XUL which is not copy and paste-able by default.

So we should either go back to HTML, or we should jump through whatever hoops required to make XUL copy and paste-able.

The key is that we need to be able to copy whole trees of calls and returns, not just individual logs.
I think we can just use user-select for that https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/user-select

I tried adding

#tracer-traces * {
  -moz-user-select: text;
}

both with and without the -moz- prefix and the text was not selectable. Any idea whats up?
