Hi,
I was messing around with another drive, and somehow changed a lot of settings to 'user set'. Please don't ask how I did it ..... I really don't know. (I 'think' it might have been while using a program called Puran Utilities to clean up the other drive. But don't quote me.) So, I would like to reset them to default I can do it in about:config by choosing 'reset', but ..... one ..... at ...... a .... time, and there's about 100. Is there some way of speeding up this process. I'm not going to setup a new profile. (I will do them individually, if it comes to that.)
Thanks,
..... john

With SeaMonkey closed, you can edit prefs.js by hand and delete the offending entries.

Hi barbaz
So, deleting them will force them to their default values?
