I just noticed harthur configuring her Fennec instance via about:config and the classic "This May void your warranty" message cropped up.  I believe desktop users can appreciate the tongue and cheek nature of this warning, where mobile users might be a little more reluctant/confused/worried that they are doing something that could void their actual device warranty.

Granted, folks who access about:config should know what they are doing in the first place.

Just thought it should be noted this warning's not as appropriate for Fennec as it is for the desktop version.

This is "fixed" with the new about:config patched in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=540009
