User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20060202 CentOS/1.0.7-1.4.3.centos4 Firefox/1.0.7

Please consider moving the contents of prefs.js to a directory whose files are parsed by TB on startup. This would make it trivial to drop a new mail account into a user's existing configuration without knowledge of what might already be there, without messing up his other settings and without a graphical interface. This would be ideal for large-base installations and large helpdesks: "Settings? Just copy this file there and restart TB". Any number of applications employ this method, httpd/conf.d is just one example,   

Reproducible: Always
This is really a Core Preferences issue...
