Scenario: Inspect an element in Firebug, click the inspect button (or flashlight icon in the new version 1.4.0b5).


The problem: But you want to do this with a keyboard shortcut.

The solution: Ctrl+Shft+C

Some concerns: With the number of extensions Firefox offers you may experience keyboard shortcut clashes, like for example with the CacheViewer which uses Crtl+Shft+C also.

Firebug is a free Firefox extension. Ready to install?

From several reponses received and from my own expreience since I upgraded to Windows 7 from Windows XP the Ctrl+Shift+C now oepens a new tab showing the CSS file. The Firbug suggested shortcut does not work anymore.

I know there are some shortcuts already assigned or something to firebug. I didn't even have firebug open and bumped some key on my keyboard and inspect element page popped open.

Ctrl+Shift+C is also 'View CSS' in Web Developer—I'm sure I'm not the only FireBug user who also uses Web Developer.

I've changed my shortcut to Meta+C, and this works well. Not sure what to suggest to Windows and Mac users.
