Hi all,

I am trying to change my "browser.urlbar.matchBehaviour" to 2 from the default 3. Every time I change it and reload the browser it goes back to 3. I have even changed it in the user.js and the prefs.js files and I have even made prefs.js read-only so it can't be changed.

Even after this I reload the browser and it is back to 3. The files also haven't changed. I have done a search and there are no other user.js or prefs.js files that I haven't changed.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Daven

Some extension resetting it or possibly antivirus software locking the file?

Usual story, does it happen in safe mode/with a new profile?

Thanks, I thought I had found all occurrences of matchBehaviour, and indeed I had, shame FF uses american spelling! matchBehavior found that oldLocationBar was changing it back. A quick edit and I'm back up and running :)

Thanks
