I am trying to copy and paste but Firefox says I am being denied access to the clipboard and to type in "about.config" into the address bar and then go to Signed Applets Code Base_Principle_support and enter true. When I type in about.config in the address bar it just goes to a search engine for "about.config".

Boolean prefs can be toggled with a double-click on the pref or by right-click & "toggle".

about:config got me to where I needed to be and I found the right line but there was no way to change it from false to true.
