    Accepted Solution

    - Open Firefox
    - Type "about:config" in the URL bar
    - You will se a table of all config settings, the second column is the settings status, predefined or custom (translation from my italian version). Customized settings are in bold.
    - Right-click on the BOLD rows and choose RESET TO DEFAULT, to switch back to the predefined setting.

    Please note that commands can have a slightly different name than I wrote, because I have the italian version and I tried to translate them as correct as possibile.
