What is about:config

about:config is a special page that lists all Mozilla preferences (read from prefs.js and user.js), many of which are not present in Options/Preferences dialog. Preferences can be changed there.

Warning: Do not change any values unless you really know what you are doing.

See about:config Entries and preferential.mozdev.org for the list of available preferences with explanations.

See this page for step-by-step guide on adding and changing prefs (with screenshots).
