Steps to reproduce:

I tried to remove the blinding blinking cursors, so I could see if I've typed or mistyped something.

Actual results:

about:config does not include ui.caretBlinkTime unless users create it.

I copied and pasted the data from WF 56. I screwed up and ended up with ui.caretBlinkTime;0 integer 0 instead of ui.caretBlinkTime integer 0.

It's kinda hard to see what I've typed while blinded by that blinking cursor.

I then repeated but cut off the end, getting ui.caretBlinkTime integer 0.

But I was unable to delete ui.caretBlinkTime;0

Expected results:

  1. As an accessibility feature, ui.caretBlinkTime ought to be included by default (and included in the front-end preferences).

  2. Users should be able to rename or delete mistyped entries. So that users won't delete necessary values, maybe this should only apply to entries with no defalt value.

hi, it should be possible to remove self-created (mistyped) preferences by right clicking them & choosing "reset".

It no longer shows up, but when I used reset, it continued to show up for the rest of the session.
