Starting Xdebug's debugger with Firefox

I was recently searching for sites that mention Xdebug and found a FireFox 2 extension that allows you to trigger Xdebug's debugger without having to use XDEBUG_SESSION_START as parameter. The extension works by adding the XDEBUG_SESSION cookie itself. You can configure which IDE key it uses.

Update: This extension no longer exists, please refer to instead.
