Firefox and firebub

I had and now I still have firebug installed on firefox.  The problem I have, and I do not know how it used to be; but when I ran my Selenium Webdriver code (the firefox browser would be openned) and hit F12 the firebug/firepath would be available.  

Am I wrong on this thought?
Now I have to open a separate firefox browser, and when I fit F12, I do get the firebug and firepath.

My thought is that I added some "add-on" that disabled firebug on a selemium webdriver test browser page.
I can't find a way to list the installed add-ons in firefox.  Do you know how?

Jackie man,  interesting, I had been on that page before, and did not see what I now see with the Ctrl+Shift+A.
Thank you, points coming to you.

There are 3 ways by which you can invoke Firebug & FirePath in Firefox after you download it and install it.

1. Click on the Firebug icon on Firefox toolbar
2. Click on View -> Firebug
3. Press F12 from keyboard when Firefox is open and active.

1. After opening of Firebug, click on FirePath tab.
2. Click on second button (Square) on Firebug toolbar.
3. Point your cursor to any of the Web Element that you want to inspect.
4. Click on the Web Element

Now. you can see the details of the selected Web Element. FirePath will also show you the XPath for the selected element. You can just copy the XPath and paste it in your script and use it.
