 Ten Mysteries of about:config

"Firefox configuration is stored in a small attribute-type-value database called the preference system. You can see a delta of this data set in the ~/.mozilla/firefox/*/prefs.js file. That file holds only the nondefault values selected by the user. The rest of the preferences either are unstated or stated in install files that are part of the standard install. For me, they're in /local/install/firefox/defaults/pref, because /local is my playpen of choice."
