I've recently learnt myself (see 
<>) that FF is much more 
configurable than the preferences dialogs may suggest. Only the settings 
are not just as "reachable". One generally discovers by asking, like you 
and I did. The easiest way to reach them IMHO is through the about:config 
pseudo-url. To know which is which one would better check 
<> and related pages though.

Maybe, but it doesn't matter if your teammate just knocked a home run.
Unfortunately the ball is still in the air, and we don't know if it'll
clear the fence, or land in someone's mit.
