Thanks for that. I'm using Moz 1.0 and
1. There is a line '715 network.http.request.timeout default int 120'
in about:config, but right click does nothing in this version.
2. I added the user-pref line to my user.js and restarted to no effect.
( I have other lines in user.js that also have no effect )
So I guess the next question is what must I do to install a later version?
