I would like to configure the "browser.cache.disk.enable" pref property in XULRunner 10.x. For XULRunner 1.9.x and 2.x, I was able to locate the relevant preferences config file in <XULRunnerInstallationDir>\greprefs\all.js or <XULRunnerInstallationDir>\greprefs.js to set the property. May I know where is the equivalent file in XULRunner 10.x?

Thank you very much for your help!

Hi all,
I have the same problem.
I would like to configure XULRunner 10.x to allow access clipboard from javascript.
It is possible to do this programmatically?

Thank you very much.

Andrea

Hi,

This file lives in the user's profile directory. See the
getProfilePath() method implementation in each of the following to see
how this is computed:

- win32:
http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.swt.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.swt/Eclipse%20SWT%20Mozilla/win32/org/eclipse/swt/browser/MozillaDelegate.java
- gtk:
http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.swt.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.swt/Eclipse%20SWT%20Mozilla/gtk/org/eclipse/swt/browser/MozillaDelegate.java
- cocoa:
http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.swt.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.swt/Eclipse%20SWT%20Mozilla/cocoa/org/eclipse/swt/browser/MozillaDelegate.java

Also note (not sure if this is helpful or not) that a user can change
these by navigating their XULRunner-based Browser to "about:config".

HTH,
Grant

In case you're wondering, on Windows the profile dir resolves to
C:\Users\<userName>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\eclipse .

Hi Grant,

Thanks a lot for your help! Inside C:\Users\<userName>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\eclipse, I see a prefs.js

Inside prefs.js, I see that there are some defaults already set, using the syntax user_pref(<key>, <value>), instead of the pref(<key>,<value>) syntax used in all.js / greprefs.js for XULRunner 1.9.x and 2.x.

I'd just like to verify if prefs.js is the right file to change, and that I should use the user_pref(<key>, <value>) syntax as well?

That should be the correct file, and I would suggest following whatever
syntax is already there. To see it in action, launch your app, navigate
your XULRunner-based Browser to about:config, change a setting there,
exit your app, and then see what was written to the file.
