For LockPref in Firefox 7,  you need extract ,in «firefox-file», the
omni.jar (jar -x -f omni.jar). In the «grepref.js» you can add the line:
pref("general.config.filename", "firefox.cfg");

And for your information, you can add just «//» before the line :

For update the omni.jar use:
jar -f omni.jar -u grepref.js

And add your firefox.cfg in the firefox's folder.
