    More specifically, while using Firebox, install the Plugin called "Firebug", it will let you 'inspect' the link and see if it has a nofollow attribute.

    or you could simply look at the source code

    if there is rel="nofollow" in a <a href> tag, then that's nofollow.

    Firefox definitely... but all you need to do is inspect page source, works on all browsers..
    just got to View>Page Source

    In your toolbar go to View then Page Source this is also good for seeing keywords, titles, tags etc It is also usefull to have one of the many plug ins for Mozilla Firefox and this is of course quicker than viewing the source code.
