Good to know it works. The reason prefs.js says: do not edit, is that 
that's not the right file to edit.
http://kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file says the modifications, if you 
want to do them by hand, go to user.js. Anyway, if I had to do that I'd 
go through the automated tools instead. Easier and less of a headache.
