Removing Firefox Inspect Element (we use FireBug!)

Just a quick one! We all know and love Firebug, but you might get annoyed when you right click to inspect element, only to find you clicked on ‘Inspect Element (Q)’ instead of ‘Inspect Element with Firebug’. So lets get rid of the one we don’t use!


It’s real easy. Browse to about:config, and proceed past the warning.


Set extensions.firebug.hideDefaultInspector to true.
Set devtools.inspector.enabled to false.
Problem solved!


Disable default Inspect Element in Firefox (we use Firebug!)

If you use and love Firebug like me, you may also have been driven mad accidentally clicking the wrong Inspect Element!

Thankfully, it’s real easy to sort. Browse to about:config, search for the setting extensions.firebug.hideDefaultInspector, and change it to true!

No more irritating wasted seconds!
