Editing prefabs directly in the project browser is no longer possible



1: Create a prefab
2: Select the prefab in the project browser
3: Note the inspector does not show any properties or components

Expected behaviour: I can inspect and editor the prefab when selecting it in the project browser
Actual behaviour: I only see a "Open Prefab" button in the inspector

    Any chance of getting this implemented into 2018.4? I don't want to have to update to a completely new Unity version just to get something this minor, but extremely useful.

    And if my prefab is a UI button? Can I modify it as before?
