Gui:config-Something more for Firefox
  

Code wizards may be okay with the way the about:config page looks like but Firefox noobs might be quite intimidated by it. And intimidation always kills the curious cat. Here’s a plug-in you might consider trying - gui:config. It organizes all of the options into tabs, options, checkboxes and lists.

Firefox extension gui:config adds an advanced settings panel with easy access to options normally hidden behind cryptic about:config options. Once installed, the extension adds a new Advanced Settings item to the Tools menu for accessing the hidden settings. Rather than making you install the add-on to see if the settings apply to you, we'll just take a quick tour through all of the screens so you can visually figure out if you want to install it or not.

gui:config makes it easier to change preferences that can only be found in the about:config. The extension supports a comfortable way to apply changes to these options.
  • The Accessibility tab adds in quite a few useful settings like middle-click paste or changing the backspace key's default setting to go back a page (an annoyance for many people).

  • The Browser tab gives you options to change the amount of cache being used or when the cache is checked, letting you cache more aggressively for performance reasons.

  • The Style tab lets you turn off Favicons, tooltips or disable blinking text (another annoyance).

  • The Downloads tab lets you change the download directory and adjust the alert settings for completed downloads.

  • The Bookmarks tab lets you configure the amount of bookmark backups that are created (usually once per day for 5 days).

  • The Developing tab is probably only useful for programmers, and most people won't want to mess with these settings.

Re: Gui:config-Something more for Firefox

gui:config currently supports 9 languages....
  • German (de-DE)
  • English (en-US)
  • Spanish (Spain) (es-ES)
  • Italian (it-IT)
  • Polish (pl-PL)
  • Portuguese (Brazilian) (pt-BR)
  • Russian (ru-RU)
  • Chinese (Simplified) (zh-CN)
  • Chinese (Traditional) (zh-TW)

With the help of GUI...

The advanced settings can be accessed via the menu item

The advanced settings can be accessed by a button in your toolbar.

You will find the menu item right after the proper "Options" item...
