Background

The about:config configuration screen for Mozilla gives easy access to many otherwise hidden preferences. Some of these can be detrimental to change without knowing the ramifications. In Firefox 2.0, a warning page is displayed before the user can use about:config to change settings.

Possible values and their effects

True

Display a warning message when visiting about:config (Default)

False

Display about:config normally without a warning

UI

Mozilla Firefox 2.0

The first time you visit about:config, you have the option of disabling the warning by unchecking a checkbox (“Show this warning next time”) that toggles this preference.
