Description

It's possible my testing was incorrect, but I set several prefpanes to be instantApply="false" in their xul files, and the OK/Cancel buttons never appeared.

From my basic reading of preferences.xul, it looks like we require browser.preferences.instantApply to be set the way the addon wants it: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/toolkit/content/widgets/preferences.xml#600

Am I wrong?

Do those prefpanes access the global instantApply instead of the local one?
