prefs.js is not in the list ;-), because it contain(ed?) machine-dependent data.
Not a bug, but difficult RFE.

We can filter the non machane dependent preference into another preference file
like liprefs.js(netscape4.x) for roaming. Of course we need to make mozilla use
that file and it's priority is higher than prefs.js.

This bug is filed in a bugzilla component related to pre-Firefox code which no longer exists. I believe it is no longer relevant and I am therefore closing it INCOMPLETE.

If you believe that this bug is still valid and needs to be fixed, please reopen it and move it to the Toolkit:Startup and Profile System product/component.
