More Information

I tried using this website:
The following steps detail how to customise an existing installation:
Create a temporary working folder (for example, create C:\TEMP\Firefox)
Create a new text file called 'override.ini' and copy in the following information:
Create a new text file called 'local-settings.js' and copy in the folling information:
pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);
pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");
Create a new text file called 'mozilla.cfg' and copy in the following information:
//Firefox Default Settings
pref("browser.startup.homepage", "http://www.google.com.au");
Copy 'override.ini' and 'mozilla.cfg' to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\
Copy 'local-settings.js' to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref
Start up Firefox and confirm the settings specified in 'mozilla.cfg' are working.
But I get a error message. and Firefox won't open after that.

The code looks fine to me.

Does it help if you save the files with Unix line endings (line feed %0a)?

Which error message do you get?
