Using the Terminal for this is sort of a hack-solution, just go to Go - Go to Folder in the Finder (or type Shift-Cmd-G), type /tmp and hit enter. Only thing is if you navigate away from it you have to go to the Go to Folder command again (unless you put it in the sidebar - that's the easiest way to...
