Services.prefs.getBoolPref()

Unread post by JoeyG » 2019-05-26, 22:31

The release notes to today's update say,

Code: Select all

Restored a global getBoolPref() function shortcut for extension compatibility with old extensions.
If you are currently using this global function, please change it to Services.prefs.getBoolPref()
Don't laugh, but I have no idea how to check my settings for this. I looked in "about:config" but wasn't able to find anything.

If it's relevant for us end users, please help me with this.

Thanks.
Bye-bye Firefox.

No, it is relevant for developers. It is a function in the Pale Moon code, not a preference in about:config.
