As a follow up to Bug 1297758, it could be nice if about:debugging#tabs allowed to directly open the inspector (and when ready, console etc...) targeting a given tab-id. 

The idea is to add a select box to pick a specific tool in the about:debugging#tabs UI.

Since this is mostly intended for development, this feature could sit behind a pref defaulting to true only in Nightly.

(try push with a quick implementation: https://treeherder.mozilla.org/#/jobs?repo=try&revision=a32c31f15972f401310077a48f06b7f0962917a2)
Alex, what do you think about this?

It would be helpful if that ends up being a common workflow. We could potentialy have that for more than just tabs.
It could be also helpful to spawn the urls for the root actor:
  about:devtools-toolbox?type=process > sort of equivalent of Browser toolbox with a potentialy breakful debugger
  chrome://devtools/content/inspector/inspector.xhtml?type=process > equivalent of the browser toolbox one

Also I don't know if I will have time to actually do it, but I would like to load everything via query parameters. The toolboxes and tools. So that you would just have to right click and click on "This frame > Show only this frame".

What about creating a specific pref and set if from the addon?
I'm just unsure if that's great behavior for all nightly users.
