Using the lockpref with Firefox 18, redhat 6.3. I cannot get it to work...

I cannot get the lockpref to work. RH6.3, Firefox 18.

I created mozilla.cfg at:

   /usr/lib64/firefox   

It contains two lines:

   //
   lockpref ("security.enable_ssl3", true);

I created local-settings at:

   /usr/lib64/firefox/default/preferences

It contains two lines: pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.filename", "mozilla.cfg");

When I goto about:config, it still shows security.enable_ssl3 false.

any ideas???

hello, it's

lockPref("security.enable_ssl3", true); 

(with P and without space)

i also think that local-settings.js has to go into the /defaults/pref-subfolder in newer versions of firefox

The correct name of the function is lockPref() and not lockpref()
