Firefox 7 Preferences Files has been changed

Hi everyone,

The developers who want to customise their latest Firefox 7, there is no pref.js (preferences file, which we used to configure the firefox) and user.js (user preferences file).

We can use one and only one preferences file named syspref.js to configure the default firefox.

In Ubuntu it is located under /usr/lib/firefox-7.0.x/defaults/pref/syspref.js

Here we can configure our default homepage and proxies etc.

We can do the same by typing about:config in the browser address bar.

Update your browser and set up according to your convenience.

Please reach me @ @ for queries.
