Firefox has a lot of cool hidden features that you guys don't want enabled by default for reasons and are only accessible in about:config (which is unfriendly).

You could add an option "Show advanced settings" that would add a new section in browser settings the same way "Firefox Experiments" does.


Except that this one could be enabled without having to go in about:config, otherwise it would kill all the purpose.

In that section you would expose select settings people are often asking for without knowing they're already there.

To name a few I'm personally using :

  • Hide DL panel : = false
  • Don't close firefox with last tab : browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab = false
  • Paste with middle click : middlemouse.paste = true
  • Disable disk cache : browser.cache.disk.enable = false
  • Disable prefetch : network.prefetch-next = false
