Description

7 years ago
When trying to edit an existing type=string values, there's no way to save the changes.  Typing in the new string, then clicking away will only revert that value back to its original.   Theres no dynamic updates shown.

Also observe that the "Reset" button never gets enabled and remains grayed out

Repro:
1) install fennec nightly on maemo 20100730
2) open about:config, and search for a type=string value (eg. services.sync.log.logger.engine.passwords = "Debug")
3) change the value of that string so something else (eg "Trace") 
4) Verify there's no save button, Reset button remains disabled, and clicking away will only revert your value back to the original

Expected:
- Dynamic updating of value changes for string type configs

Actual:
- does not save new string value
Confirmed with the latest trunk build.
In the error console, I get these js errors, every time, I type something of the word "Trace":

There are a few other uses of Ci in the file which should be fixed too.

r=mbrubeck with that change.
