To enhance it I'd like to suggest two suggestions. 1. Allow each preference to have as well as a name, a meaningful description. This could be shown in a column 'Preference Descritpion' or as a mouse-over tooltip. 2. Allow viewing the preferences as a tree-based layout. For a preference in the form of 'a.b.c.d' any given item is a container if a preference or container exists 'under it', that is 'a.b.c' is a container because 'a.b.c.d' exists, whether it is an actual preference or just a container for child items. Also an item can be a preference. For something that is only a container, it would not have anything for the other columns than the name, but if it is also a preference, it would show the status, type, and value as well. if a is a preference with a child preference a.b.c, but a.b is not a preference but only a container (it has a preference under it), it woudl look sometihng like: a - <status> - <type> - <value> >>b <nothing> >>>>c - <status> - <type> - <value> Such a tree can be easily expanded/collapsed. At the start of 'about:config' it should be collapsed and only the top-level names shown. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: n/a Actual Results: n/a Expected Results: n/a n/a
about:config doesn't belong to preferences which is only about the UI in tools/options marking NEW as valid enhancement request
