Well, it does Fred or at least it should :-) .

Which version of FF are you using?

BTW, whatever you can access via about:config is actually what is in the
file prefs.js inside the ./mozilla directory so you can edit that file
and add the required line(s).

The ONLY prefs.js file is in: /opt/gnome/share/themes/QtCurve/mozilla
and editing it doesn't work. :(

Of course editing this file won't work - it's not the file.

Something is really screwed up there Fred if you can only find the one prefs.js on your system.

Below are all the prefs.js file on my 10.2 install - and not all relate to FF or TB. Because I do not use FF or Thunderbird (TB) as they are installed by 10.2 itself (I install my own, from mozilla.org into my /home directory) the prefs.js in /usr are only cosmetic entries - it's the ones in the /home directory which are the active ones (for FF and TB).

/home/basil/.thunderbird/xxxxxxxxxx.default/prefs.js
/home/basil/firefox/defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js
/home/basil/firefox/defaults/profile/prefs.js <---------------------------x
/home/basil/firefox/greprefs/security-prefs.js
/home/basil/thunderbird/defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js
/home/basil/thunderbird/defaults/profile/prefs.js
/home/basil/thunderbird/greprefs/security-prefs.js
/usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js
/usr/lib/firefox/defaults/profile/prefs.js
/usr/lib/firefox/greprefs/security-prefs.js
/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.8.1b2/greprefs/security-prefs.js
/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.8.1b2/simple/defaults/preferences/simple-prefs.js
/usr/share/YaST2/yastbrowser/defaults/preferences/yastbrowser-prefs.js

I would be backing up any needed files in the FF installation (like bookmarks, passwords) and reinstalling FF to make sure it is all correctly installed.

Cheers.
