Tweaking FireFox with about:config

February 26, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

To get the best out of FireFox you some times need to tweak the settings.

You can edit prefs.js directly to tweak your firefox install, but it’s often easier to change the settings through the browser window

So to do this type about:config in the address bar and press Enter, (you should see the box below) and you’ll see all the settings currently enumerated in prefs.js, listed in alphabetical order. To narrow down the hundreds of configuration preferences to just the few you need, type a search term into the Filter: bar. (Click the Show All button or just clear the Filter: bar to get the full list back again.)

Warn

To edit a preference, double-click on the name and you’ll be prompted for the new value. If you double-click on an entry that has a Boolean value, it’ll just switch from true to false or vice versa; double-click again to revert to the original setting. Not all changes take effect immediately, so if you want to be absolutely certain a given change is in effect, be sure to close and reopen Firefox after making a change
