XF 1.3 How to Manipulate Usernames without Changing Usernames

Back when we were on vBulletin, one of our admins, who isn't a member here, was able to inspect the element and manipulate his username to test how a long username would look in areas like the controls in the header (Inbox, Settings, etc.)

I never did this myself, so I don't know what he did, but is this possible on XenForo? If so, how? I would like to use it to see what longer usernames would look like in the message user info box and member card.

The same way as you did on vBulletin. Inspect the element and modify the HTML. Chrome's inspector works perfectly for this.

In any case, this area? I tried changing that, but it didn't do anything:

Firebug you can do the same as well. I have done it to test looks myself.
There's actually no longer a need for Firebug. Mozilla Firefox implemented it a long time ago -- I don't remember the exact version.

I am used to, and like, and will continue to use Firebug. I know about the Inspect Element (Q). Just a creature of habit.
