How do I get to about:config ??

more options

I am trying to get Firefox browser to remember my credit cards. I found the following instruction dated 6/12/18:

"Mozilla is slowly enabling formautofill for credit cars spread out over a number of new version released, and initially for a certain percent of en-US users. The code is inside Firefox but just not enabled for all users. For users who didn't get it enabled automatically that can be done manually like this.

In about:config use the Search at the top for this pref - extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available - then right-click and Toggle that pref to True."

I have not utilized about:config in the browser before. I've used something similar in Thunderbird, but I seem to never remember exactly how to get to that file. I'll write it down this time in hopes I can access it. Firefox v77.0, Windows 10. p.s. When I try to search in Help for "how to find about:config" or any other form of the question, Help simply gives me all results that include "about:config".

Thank you for your time, --Vic

Hi Vic, about:config is an internal address like about:preferences (the Options page) or about:support (the Troubleshooting Information page). You can type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter to load it.

More info: Configuration Editor for Firefox.

jscher2000 -- Thank you, yes. That was easy. cor-el -- Thanks for watching out, I really appreciate it.

I've used Thunderbird for many years, was a Eudora refugee. I have always found the support forum to be extremely helpful. Glad to be safe with Firefox browser now.
