'Support" in gPlayStore said to come here for help. So far, NO JOY.

When you suddenly stripped away access to about:config, you also wiped out my previously working PROXY SETTINGS? WHY??? What gave you the right to screw that up as part of "updating???"

Rather than fascisticsally removing about:config, WHY NOT CREATE A MECHANISM TO BACK-UP, RESTORE, RESTORE-TO-LAST-KNOWN-GOOD and OFFLINE EDIT :config SETTINGS. THAT would be USEFUL IDIOT-PROOFING, rather than taking away about:cofig.

If idiots are wrecking their FFforA by breaking things in about:config, LET THEM UNINSTALL/REINSTALL and START OVER FROM SCRATCH.


The Devs are smarter than this. So are Power Users. Forcing Nightly and/or Beta is overbearing and arrogant.
