If, like me, you spend a lot of time inspecting websites with Firebug you’ll have got into the habit of clicking the little bug in your status bar, clicking “HTML” and then clicking “Inspect”.

But, in the most recent versions you can get there with just one click, all you have to do is add the toolbar button!

You can find the button in the View menu, under Toolbars > Customize…. Drag it onto your toolbar, and inspect away, with two less clicks to get there.

The icon is awful, and doesn’t blend in with the new Firefox 3 theme on the mac, but it looks slightly better when you install the GrApple theme.

    At least on windows, you can just right-click and select Inspect element from there. This opens firebug and shows the html-part of the element you clicked on.

    @Nico – yes this works exactly the same on the Mac.
