     18  The information below is for the Enigmail and IPC downloads. Additionally,
     19  a makemake file is download because we cannot build Enigmail using an
     20  object directory without it. Informaiton about the Enigmail source to
     21  check for updates is located at http://enigmail.mozdev.org/source.html.
     22
     23  The link to the makemake file is near the end of the page in the section
     24  titled "Using OBJDIR when building Enigmail". Ensure you check the rev
     25  level of the link and update the "enigmail-makemake-version" entitity
     26  if necessary. In case you are wondering why the version has the question
     27  mark and "rev=" in it, it is because the complete URL is used in a command
     28  and it would extend past the 71 characters that PDF render is limited to.
     29  It should make sense after you see it rendered in the wget command.

     612    <para>Along with using the <quote>Preferences</quote> menu to configure
     613    <application>Mozilla</application>'s options and preferences to suit
     614    individual tastes, finer grain control of many options is only available
     615    using a tool not available from the general menu system. To access this
     616    tool, you'll need to open a Navigator window and enter
     617    <systemitem role='url'>about:config</systemitem> in the
     618    address bar. This will display a list of the configuration preferences and
     619    information related to each one. You can use the <quote>Filter:</quote> bar
     620    to enter search criteria and narrow down the listed items. Changing a
     621    preference can be done using two methods. One, if the preference has a
     622    boolean value (True/False), simply double-click on the preference to toggle
     623    the value and two, for other preferences simply right-click on the desired
     624    line, choose <quote>Modify</quote> from the menu and change the value.
     625    Creating new preference items is accomplished in the same way, except
     626    choose <quote>New</quote> from the menu and provide the desired data into
     627    the fields when prompted.</para>
