i know this has to be a simple edit, but for the life of me i can't seem to find any documentation on how to disable firefox from accessing about:config so my users can't tinker with the settings.

any help would be appreciated.

cheers!

In userContent.css:
Code: Select all
window#config * { display: none; }

Note that with the solution mentioned above, users can still shut down Firefox, edit $MOZ_PROFILE/prefs.js, and restart Firefox. Editing the file is not difficult; in fact, I like to do it that way because I can comment out entries, add functions that check for environment-variables and set settings accordingly.
