Allow users to copy more URLs

In older versions of the CurseForge app (beta) on Overwolf the login button would open a Twitch login in the default browser. It can be nightmarish as you may have multiple users or profiles. In current versions it opens the login URL in the app itself. This is much better but means that it does not cater for people who want to use their login from their browser.

Allow people to right click on items to copy the URL to open it in a browser of their choosing instead of in their default browser. Dedicated items are good where appropriate but can take up space and right clicking is a very common action to try to copy a link. Another common action is dragging on links to a browser.

Additional examples include the view profile button, view modpack website, view mod website.

I've had too many awful experiences with apps not being clear about what will open externally, and with them not letting me just copy or drag the link. I'd like CurseForge to do the right thing and have good UX.
