[FireFox] permissions.default.image setting gone?

I just did a clean install of Windows so I figured I would start fresh with a brand new install of Firefox 3.

As I was transferring all my settings over in about:config from my old PC to my new one I could not find permissions.default.image. Have they removed it in 3.0?

I used to like having it set to 3 to stop all third party images. Is that ability gone now or somewhere else?

From what I can tell its still valid: »kb.mozillazine.org/Permissions.default.image

It exists in my install feel free to create it Fx should pick it up once you restart it.

You really do not want to transfer any old prefs.js settings except for extension settings where applicable.

When you start Fx v3 the first time install any extensions you want and then use the old prefs.js to duplicate the settings.

As Lanik said that setting should be created but you may have to open up Fx Options - Content and check the box to allow images first then afterwards open up about:config and change the setting to "3".

Edit:
Disregard. It's there now. That's weird. I swera it wasn't there before and I changed nothing. I guess you have to open and close it a few times for it come or something.

Oh well. Thanks guys.
