[INFO]	ChatZilla [Firefox 3.0/2008052906]

The preferences for actions taken when clicking on links are set via cryptic plain-text input boxes, leaving room for any input, instead of limiting the choices to a specific set using a drop-down list.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to Chatzilla -> Preferences... -> Global Settings -> Global (tab) -> Links (section)
2. Observe that four click options are set as goto-url-* options and can be changed to any possible text input.

Changing the settings to an invalid command (such as goto-url-qwerty) results in the following error in the Error Console:

Error: command is undefined
Source File: chrome://chatzilla/content/commands.js
Line: 289
This is a known limitation of the current preferences window, and affects many other prefs too. :(
