about:config differently in KM 1.6?

Have a little prob ;-)

It looks like in KM 16a3 the filter function has changed, now it lists not only hits in pref names but also in values.
Which on one hand is great, I've sometimes missed that!
On the other hand, is there any option to choose whether to include or exclude values in the hit list...?

Thing being, if one has lots of sessions stored (I mean *LOTS*), and for example filtering "source", the hits now include all sourceforge pages in all sessions...

It was difficult before with sometimes session entries popping up among real prefs, if a session name contains a string, but if it now includes all contained URLs too... Help! surprised smiley

So a second wish, wouldn't it be possible to store the sessions entirely elsewhere, in a separate sheet instead of prefs??

Just notice there's also a growing list of "kmeleon.MRU.URLxxx" entries mixed in between...

If it's not possible to exclude such 'history-ish' prefs, would it perhaps be possible to give them another name, like starting with "z", so they get all listed at the end...
Instead of the few real pref hits now appearing partly in the beginning, in the middle, in the end...

@ sira

I see what you mean. I guess I am fortunate that I use Groups more than Sessions and I set all my prefs to "k-meleon" rather than the standard "kmeleon". I wonder if Dorian could set another pref where the selection could be a toggle between the pref only or pref and value?

I am also not sure I like the new warning message as well I did the previous one.

Are you think in open your pref.js file in a text editor like Notepad++ or PSpad?

Uhm, deleting would be easy, but those sessions are stored for a reason ;-)

the new about:config is due to gecko 1.9.x, i don't kmow if that's possible to change or if dorian would fiddle with it.. dorian already had to fix several gecko 1.9 bugs and modify netcert so it can work properly in kmeleon, i like many things in 1.8 much more than 1.9 but mozilla don't always keep the good things

If it is going to require much work by Dorian to change then I would put this far down my list of things to do.

For about:config, it always opens within the browser. For prefs.js, I most often use notepad - right click and edit.
