Chapter 5. Advanced Firefox > Advanced Configuration

5.5. Advanced Configuration

In Chapter 2, I walked you through the essential configuration changes that you should make when you first start using Firefox, and in Appendix B, I cover the rest of your configuration choices in detail. In both cases, you use Tools→ Options to access those choices. Firefox, however, contains within it a window to every possible configuration choice possible in the browser—I'm talking hundreds of possibilities now, far more than are visible in the Options window. Firefox even allows you to customize the browser's appearance and how it handles web pages, once you know where to look.

Or maybe wear gloves

I'm going to show you some files and settings in Firefox that are potentially dangerous, so be careful! Better still, back up your profile using MozBackup, which I covered in Chapter 2, before trying anything in this section. If something goes wrong, you can just revert to a good profile, and then try again.
