Is there a file of of active references of a session? I am not referring prefs.js, user.js, or the list of modified references on the troubleshooting page. Or, if there isn't such a file, how can I print out a complete list and their values of about:config?

Recent versions of about:config have allowed a complete copy of names and values.
Using select all or hold left click moving your cursor down for whatever section, group or entirely, right click and copy.
This is useful for comparisons between systems using the same version of Firefox.

You can save the list as prefs.htm using the web console and a text editor.

i.e. right click <html> tag, copy outer html, open text editor, paste, save as prefs.htm

You can color the user set prefs by adding an inline style.

Code: Select all
- <meta http-equiv="Content-Security-Policy" content="default-src chrome:; object-src 'none'">
+ <style type="text/css">tr.has-user-value { color: red; }</style>

Thank you both. Copied and pasted them directly into a text file. I also found a method to clean up my user.js file and remove the non-applicable preferences. They were lockPrefs and questions about which I will post separately.
