They are: local-settings.Both are text files which can be created with any text editor. The effect of the files is to take the options one might configure in the about:config section of Firefox and make them available to the program as a whole. pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); //lock Pref("app.update.auto", false);lock Pref("app.update.enabled", false); These are plain text files, but they need to have the correct file extensions of and .cfg, respectively.
