Finding current element in Firefox

Here's a little tip for people using the web developer extension for Firefox. Sometimes when using the "Outline current element", the path to the element is so long it doesn't fit on screen. To get the full path, leave the mouse where it is outlining the element you want, press ALT+D to jump into the address bar, tab until you're in the web developer box containing the path, then CTRL+C to copy the path to the clipboard.

I'm using Windows but no doubt you can figure out the same on other operating systems!

Works on Ubuntu also, but you wouldn't want to get used to using CTRL+C on Linux! CTRL+Insert is probably better.
