how to permanently disable quick links
Recently Firefox has started doing something extremely annoying - activating something called quick links whenever I use an apostrophe ('). The only way I have found to disable it is to go into about:config and add a boolean to disable it, but when I restart Firefox it goes back to the default settings. This is incredibly annoying because damnit, I want to use proper grammar and punctuation in my posts and this thing won't let me! I never asked to turn it on since Ctrl-F does the same thing, it is a redundant feature that has a stupid trigger. I'm seriously switching to Chrome over this, but I'm hoping I can solve the problem first...

Above "solutions" attempted.
Did not work.
Solutions that involve me resizing windows, or opening and closing dialogue boxes, or sacrificing a chicken to the mozilla overlords are not acceptable. Fix the problem by removing the keymap, or allowing users to remove the keymapping, would be grand.
Any other ideas here? I would try the "upgrade FF'" solution, but FF4.1 does not support firebug yet, and without firebug there really is not a reason to use Firefox.
This has to be the most boneheaded UI/UX decision ever.
Guess what, the apostrophe is used CONSTANTLY when you are writing things like, oh, email... google docs... facebook posts... twitter posts...
Seriously. Double Picard Facepalm.
I've tried a number of the suggested ways to disable this "feature" and none of them work. Basically, in FF4, I am totally boned.
