Firefox `unix.js' settings

Anyone get the `/opt/mozilla-firefox/lib/mozilla-1.6/defaults/pref/unix.js' file to actually do something when you make changes to it?

Namely, I was playing with the Font/Truetype/Hinting/Anti-aliasing settings, starting at line 245.  Changes don't do jack.  I know similiar changes in Mozilla worked when i edited that `unix.js' file.

thx.

Re: Firefox `unix.js' settings

I think the issue is that preferences are set in the user's .mozila (.pheonix ...whatever) folders. These changes are not updated when the /opt version is. You would have to remove the local user dir copies to effect changes then..
or type 'about:config' in your address bar and manually change the settings for the local copy..

Holy smokes, I never even knew about the "about:config" URL.  Much obliged.
