What I imagine is clicking on the icon shows a native drop-down with checkable modes, like the Develop menu, just like long-clicking the New Tab tab item. We are already running out of room for more single purpose icons so we may be able to consolidate some other things this way (paint flashing + compositing borders come to mind).

My strawman proposal is to group these by where the effect is visualized: on the inspected page (flashing, layer borders) or on the tree outline (event listeners, layers, etc).
