Description

Created attachment 751064 [details]
CurrentAboutConfigMenu.png

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:21.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/21.0 (Beta/Release)
Build ID: 20130511120803

Steps to reproduce:

I tried to select multiple items in about:config to export to a new install on a different machine.


Actual results:

I can't multi-select, no option to export selected properties. I had to go through each one by hand and type in the settings on the second Firefox.


Expected results:

I should be able to select multiple items with shift-left-click or ctrl-left-click, then right-click and select export from the context menu.

It should also be possible to reset multiple entries.
