We decided to move it to the inspector so it could be on by default there.  The eyedropper can still be accessed from the top level through Tools -> Web Developer -> Eyedropper (or from the wrench icon in the nav bar in dev edition)

This solution increases operational steps. How about pros cons of new position?

I'm going to mark this bug as a WONTFIX for a few reasons:

- We'd like to bring color editors into the Style Editor, which come with their own eyedropper. (See comment #16 in bug 1258390.)  This solution helps us from adding on to the "increasing number of buttons in toolbars until they lose meaning" issue we currently have.
- The new position also allows it to always be visible and on by default in the inspector (which is much more frequently used).

and lastly,
- It was off by default in the past on clean profiles, so for many it wasn't visible in the style editor in the first place.
