I’ll be careful, I promise!

The first time a Firefox user attempts to use the about:config portal to modify the many, many options the Firefox developers are too lazy and loathe to provide GUI controls, the user sees a warning page.

“This might void your warranty!”

What warranty? Who are the Firefox developers trying to kid? The software is distributed specifically without warranty.

Rather than a traditional adult OK button, the user must select a button that says,

“I’ll be careful, I promise!”

What a childish, condescending attitude the Firefox developers have toward users.
