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 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).


This is interesting. The FireFox I have installed is from SUSE, including their latest update. There ISN'T in my home dir a /home/xxx/firefox directory. There's a .firefox dir. with not much in it. Now, WHY is there so

[Are you sure about the .firefox dir because I don't think I have ever seen one only the .mozilla directory?]

much difference between what SUSE is shipping and what installs from the FF site?!

Don't worry about these 2 entries-


because I install FF and TB in my /home directory hence this "firefox" directory which contains the executables; the profile files are in the ".mozilla" directory and this is where you should be finding the prefs.js file under discussion.

In your case, however, I expect to find the 2 files you just mentioned (above) in /usr/lib/firefox/defaults/pref/ because you are using the Suse installed FF. But in your earlier msg you stated that you only have the 1 prefs.js file in some obscure location which is what I was querying because the Suse installed FF goes into /usr/lib/firefox/ and there are prefs.js files there (but as "samples" only).


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought that tragedy is just around the corner.
