Add "Copy as data URI" for images in the Inspector
This is useful.
I wanted to file this bug at the same time :) Indeed, useful, and easy. - The inspector has a contextual menu (in inspector.xul): inspectorPopupSet. It's easy enough to add one item in there "copy as data-uri" that would be enabled only for image nodes. - NodeActor objects have a handy method called getImageData() that returns the data-uri for any image node. - We can import the nsIClipboardHelper service and use its copyString method to get the data-uri into the user's clipboard!
This patch adds the following things: - new menuitem in the inspector.xul menupopup - logic in inspector-panel.js to switch that item on and off depending if the selected node is an image or canvas or not - new function in markup-view.js to actually do the copy, this function sends a request to the NodeActor to get the image data (the getImageData actor method was already present) - a new mochitest

I'm not sure how to translate "Copy Image Data-URL". How is it different from "Copy Image URL"?
(In reply to Eduardo Trápani from comment #7) > I'm not sure how to translate "Copy Image Data-URL". How is it different > from "Copy Image URL"? It is different because the image url points to the original resource on its server, whereas the image data-url contains the image itself. A data-url looks like this: data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAA.... Since it's a standard url, it can be used in the browser location bar, or as a background-image in a CSS stylesheet for example, but instead of pointing to a remote resource, it actually contains the data of the image (encoded in base64). So clicking on "Copy Image Data-URL" will actually extract the data from the image, and turn it into a data-url.
