    Using plugins like Flash and the -moz-opacity filter it is possible to
    display the about:config site in a hidden frame or a new window.

    By making the user double-click at a specific screen position (e.g. using a
    DHTML game) you can silently toggle the status of boolean config parameters.

    As long as the number of about:config parameters is unchanged (unlikely a
    casual user will change them) you can move the parameter you want to the
    specified screen position by using CSS.

    You can also load about:config using the real player plugin and merged url
    events. See the real producer documentation for details and merge a command
    like "u 0:0:0:0.0 0:0:0:30.0 &&targetframe&&about:config"




    The bug is marked as fixed in bugzilla. Get a nightly build, compile on your
    own or wait for Firefox 1.0.1.
