One can access about:config page, but I could not make any changes.

It is currently possible to make changes to the configuration by dropping an appropriate user.js file into /home/nemo/.moziila/mozembed/ . This directory is visible when the Jolla is attached to a computer so developer mode isn't actually required. You should however be careful when editing this file as you could in principle do something bad to the browser. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/User.js_file for syntax.

@steph This is helpful as a workaround, but I am asking for editable (from gecko UI) about:config

Thank you for the workaround, managed to enable TLS 1.2 in the browser with a user.js file.

It would still be nice to be able to use the about:config page.

After the update accessing the about:config would stuck at the ''warranty void page.

Doesn't seem to work with SFOS, I can continue after warning page but on next page I can't use search and the list thar is shown is quite short. If I just choose "accept" from there, I return t the page which was open before writing that about:config to addressbar.

You're right, it seems to be broken now. Best to make a new report for it.

@megalith i tried with v2.0.0.10 and nothing changed when offline... it was just as unusable as before
