DESCRIPTION

This module handles the implementation of a prefs.js Firefox Profile

SUBROUTINES/METHODS

new

returns a new profile.

names

returns a list of existing profile names that this module can discover on the filesystem.

existing

accepts a profile name and returns a profile object for that specified profile name.

parse

accepts a path as the parameter. This path should be to a prefs.js file. Parses the file and returns it as a profile.

save

accepts a path as the parameter. Saves the current profile to this location.

get_value

accepts a key name (such as browser.startup.homepage) and returns the value of the key from the profile.

set_value

accepts a key name (such as browser.startup.homepage) and a value (such as https://duckduckgo.com) and sets this value in the profile. It returns itself to aid in chaining methods

clear_value

accepts a key name (such as browser.startup.homepage) and removes the key from the profile. It returns the old value of the key (if any).
