From bug 369878: Certain preferences (adblocking, flashblock) rely on notifications from the preference pane to load and unload their associated stylesheets. What this means is that these prefs can only be changed via the pref panes -- changing them from about:config does nothing. STR: 1. Make sure Flashblock is enabled 2. Visit a site with Flash 3. go to about:config, change camino.enable_flashblock to false 4. Reload AR: No Flash displayed. ER: Flash displayed. Filing as UNCO, because we might just decide we don't care enough to bother with it.
See bug 458304 comment 1 and s/ad-blocking/Flashblock/
I'm fine with that reasoning; WONTFIXing.
