Mozilla auto configuration[edit]

TODO[edit]

  • Improve explanation? the mozilla page and URL in configuration file aren't enough?
  • Split the configuration between browser/mailer
  • Use file compare for checks

A file to enable the system wide configuration[edit]

To enable the system wide configuration, we set general.config.filename in a .js file under "%ProgramFiles%\<Mozilla Product>\defaults\pref\":

my-load-config.js:

// -*- java -*-
// put this file in "%ProgramFiles%\<Mozilla Product>\defaults\pref\"
// Load my-config.cfg
pref("general.config.filename", "my-config.cfg");

The configuration file[edit]

The configuration file is cyphered with Wikipedia:Rot13, you can find a perl script moz-byteshift.pl to cypher the configuration.

Thunderbird is configure with general.config.obscure_value to 0, so no cyphering is required.

// -*- java -*-
