Dear Ian, I am getting many emails with this instruction, however I am 
very confused.  I used Dolphin to find the prefs.js file.  There were 8 
different entries.  They said not to edit, yet somethimes gave an 
instruction to add to the manual.  To one has told me to modify the 
manual, so I haven't.  Because of the 'Don't Edit' instruction, I wonder 
if I should edit all 8 or if they all are changed when I execute the 
above instruction.  Additionally, when editing the prefs.js file, do I 
just make my entry at the bottom of the list or is it to be incerted 
between other lines?
