pref.js in ~/Library... works as well !
Authored by: Giel on Sep 13, '02 01:14:12PM

You can enter this preference in the pref.js in your ~/Library as well.
The exact location is:

~/Library/Application Support/Chimera/Profiles/default/randomstring.slt/prefs.js

Note that 'randomstring' is not the real directoryname.
Replace it with the directory name on your computer.

I entered the following string:

user_pref("", true);

In the file you see a statement "This is a generated file!".
Nevertheless if you enter the string, it stays!

I use chimera 0.5. I don't know if it works for older versions as well.

pref.js in ~/Library... doesn't work!

Sorry, I don't think my tip works very well :(
It worked for a while, but then I seemed to
get trouble connecting to sites. And in the end
the Navigator could only be stopped using 'force quit'.
Removing the added line solved the problem.

Try creating a new text file in your profile directory caled user.js. Put your command/declaration in there. This works for a Mozilla email hack to get email links to go to Entourage. I think it will work for Chimera hacks as well. Seems to me it's cleaner and more elegant than opening up the app and modifying it.

I'd like to see instructions for creating/modifying user.js for several of the submitted hacks on Chimera.

This has the same problem. The application hangs after a while.
I'll wait for version 0.6
