Various online posts and other Bugzilla entries refer to changing a preference named "network.http.phishy-userpass-length", however in Firefox 4.01 on Windows, there is no such entry in about:config, making it hard/impossible to apply such instructions.

If the setting is truly gone from the code, those existing bugs and other content referencing it needs to be updated with information about when it was discontinued and what to do in current versions of Fx.

If the setting is still there but needs to be somehow "created" manually, this needs to be documented too, as that would differ from the normal behavior of preference settings.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In the URL bar, enter "about:config"
2. In the filter box enter "phis" or "user"
3. Look for the network.http.phishy-userpass-length preference in the resulting short list

Actual Results:  
network.http.phishy-userpass-length is not shown as an available preference setting.

Expected Results:  
network.http.phishy-userpass-length shown as an available and editable preference setting.
