In bug #98533, Brendan Eich said: else error, ignore this line (if not the whole file?). and Darin Fisher said: "i'm actually making PREF_ParseBuf return PR_FALSE if any syntax error is discovered. i like this better than just discarding the rest of the current line since a pref function call might actually span several lines. recovering from syntax errors is a rats nest i'd prefer to avoid." I don't think it should be too difficult to at least attempt to continue parsing - I think I'll give it a shot. It would annoy me a lot to lose half of my prefs because of one error.
