    Can't Access About.Config in Firefox 6.0.1

    I am running Windows XP, Service Pack 3. When I type "about.config" in the Firefox 6.0.1 address bar, it brings up a Time Warner Roadrunner Website Suggestions page instead of Firefox's settings.

    Is there a way to disable whatever is prompting the Roadrunner Website Suggestions page to load, or an alternate method to load the about.config settings page in Firefox?

    Any ideas on this would be appreciated.

    That's because the proper syntax is about:config not about.config. Easy mistake to make.
