35 <application>SeaMonkey</application> is a browser suite, the Open Source

345 Along with using the <quote>Preferences</quote> menu to configure

347 individual tastes, finer grain control of many options is only available
348 using a tool not available from the general menu system. To access this
349 tool, you'll need to open a browser window and enter
350 <systemitem role="url">about:config</systemitem> in the address bar. This
351 will display a list of the configuration preferences and information
352 related to each one. You can use the <quote>Filter:</quote> bar to enter
353 search criteria and narrow down the listed items. Changing a preference
354 can be done using two methods. One, if the preference has a boolean value
355 (True/False), simply double-click on the preference to toggle the value
356 and two, for other preferences simply right-click on the desired line,
357 choose <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value. Creating
358 new preference items is accomplished in the same way, except choose
