#3815: context menu does not work on error pages

Changes (by pde):

  * status:  new => accepted


 The underlying reason for this is that (a) the ApplicableList data
 structures used to populate the context menu are attached to
 nsIDOMWindows; (b) a new nsIDOMWindow is created when the error occurs;
 (c) naively, we don't seem to learn the URI that caused the error from
 within the error window.

 Probably the easiest way forward would be to find a way around (c).
 Followed by finding a way to bridge across the information loss at (b).
 Getting (a) to work at all was a nightmare that I do not wish to revisit.
