Hacking about:config

Hacking about:config

Firefox and Thunderbird both contain an about:config file where you can make changes to your preferences by virtue of a simple right-click. I can’t emphasize enough that making changes here may have grave consequences. If you don’t know what you are doing, please read all the documentation before proceeding. For a good explanation of what all these about:config entries mean and how they function in the context of both products, go to http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_Entries.

Another thing to be aware of is that there may be preferences listed in about:config that are actually Mozilla legacy preferences, so everything in the about:config list may not necessarily apply to Firefox or Thunderbird (as a reminder, Firefox and Thunderbird were both built from Mozilla, so they share the same roots).
