May be to clarify.
"Config Export" extension proposed by therube is exactly what I was looking for.

Just be warned it is only compatible with Firefox 31.0 - 56.*

Script investigation is then still necessary for 57 and above.

Now for Fx 57 (then no extension available), could you summarize what you call the "dickvl code" on which you apply a patch for Firefox 57 ?
Looks a little bit confusing.

Instructions for running dickvl's code in Fx 57:

* open about:config
* set browser.tabs.remote.autostart.2 preference to false
* set devtools.chrome.enabled preference to true
* restart

* open about:support
* is multiprocess windows disabled?
* if yes, then continue

* open browser console (ctrl+shift+j) in tools > web developer
* copy and paste code into browser console
* press enter to run

There is no need to fix the nsIPrefBranch2 issue. The author fixed it.

You previously missed the point I looked for clarity in your previous messages related to patches.
"The code" which works without any patch for Fx57 is then the this one :
