I couple years ago I created a shortcut to about:config. I was wondering if changes to about:config have been posted and if so, where?

You can find info on new prefs in the release notes and the log of the pref files.

Thank you for your reply and for the links. Unfortunately for me, I'm not a programmer (and at 75 do not have any reason to become one) so most of the links weren't too useful to me.

I couldn't find any date at the top of the about:config page, and quite a few entries on that page reference pretty old versions of FF.

I've always wondered why web pages aren't dated.

Type about:support in the nav entry.
Scroll down to the bottom of the page to Important Modified Preferences
Might answer some of your question.

There isn't a simple to read list.

If you searched for "preference" using the find bar in the following page, then you can find info on new preferences for that version.

P.S.

Here is the all.js file that included in the app.
