Saves me a lot of time guessing what all these knobs and switches do. It's just unfortunate that only 20% of them are actually documented in the code.

The only way this could be better is if it had links for "see also" that could take one to either the source code or perhaps a relevant discussion of the setting.

Oh, and I guess it'd be nice if you could hover over super long comments so you could read them completely. (Since they don't wrap in the table).

Descriptions seem like a no brainer. Far from comprehensive but if it gives me the information I need just once it is well worth the install.

This version is quite outdated I am sure, but it works like a charm still for important functions!
A feature I would like to suggest is the ability to right click and copy the descriptions to the clipboard!

A felhasználó már korábban értékelte ezt a kiegészítőt.

Super nice idea, it would be nice if it can support all config keys. Maybe via a wiki like mozillazine has.

Nice idea but waaaay too few entries.. :/

Neat!

This is a great ! ! But the information needs to be upgraded. There are a LOT of settings
now with no descriptions. Please Update.

Looking good.

Finally, no more googling to find out what each setting does. Very handy when you want to get under the hood.

very convenient

Only 15% of config are covered (without extensions*). I don't think it's that hard to find all description and integrate them to addon.

True, but then this would be a different extension. I created this to get at the comments left in by the developers that were otherwise inaccessible not to enumerate every one. For the rest, use:
http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries

If I ever get around to tinkering with this again I'll probably add a context menu option to link to online documentation where available.

Very useful

Very useful. Many tks to Dave G.
Question: Can You make this brilliant addon work also for Thunderbird?

5 csillagra értékelve az 5-ből

Very useful if you come across about about:config from time to time. Should definitely get integrated into firefox by default.

Very useful! Thanks!

Brilliant addon! I don't see why mozilla didn't include these descriptions in the first place, afterall, they made a site ref. Thank you for the time saved!

Mozilla developers wrote the source comments this extension shows, but not the online reference. MozillaZine is an community supported site, not the official Mozilla support site. Though not Mozilla run, it is often recommended and is currently the best source of information on things of a technical level between what's on Mozilla Support (SUMO) and the Mozilla Developer Network (MDN).

Я джва года ждал этот аддон ;)

Good addon but description field is too long.
It will be good to have a separate base of about:config settings
clients can update the local copy from server
for example it can be stored as json (on user's machine)
{"pref.name":{short:'short description','detailed':"blah blah blah",
values:[
{val:0,descr:'disables superfeature'},
{val:1,descr:'enables superfeature'},
{val:2,descr:'enables superfeature but some subfeature is disabled'},
]},....}
if the pref supports only several correct values show a drop-down menu with them on editing (though there must be a way to set the pref directly).

Also the base should contain info not only about firefox prefs but also about addons ' prefs

The whole point of this extension is to simply and quickly access the information about the preferences that is already shipped with the Firefox releases. It is way outside the scope of this project to rewrite it to load up a massive, meticulously maintained, remotely updated, fully translated, database of every single preference for your browser and all extensions. This extension is not a complete substitute for looking up things online yourself. http://kb.mozillazine.org/About:config_entries

Great idea. Thanks for your work.

It would be even better if you could use your own file, and describe ALL the entries.
