prefs.js vs user.js

I think that "officially", you are supposed to change user.js, not prefs.js. This is because prefs.js is changed by Mozilla but user.js isn't.
(eg. if you disable popups in user.js, you can't enable them from the GUI)

I don't know why it didn't work in user.js... did you restart Mozilla? Are your line endings correct? (Should be unix I think).

it just needs to be plain text. You can use Text Edit, but you must be in Plain Text mode (in the Format menu), not the default rtf mode.
