there must be some kind of overwriting being done here, as e.g. the home page stated in these firefox options does not correspond to what that orca will use (I'm not using one, i.e. about:blank) - ?

I should originally have mentioned that the links I provided are for advanced users only.

The Firefox options dialog allows easy access to several about:config options, ie directly for the internal Gecko rendering engine, but they are not a replacement for Orca's own settings.

Also, please be very careful when using that page, you can really mess up Orca's operation completely.

It's not the only option that is not working good, here is another one. Is there an about:config option to always save file to specified folder? If so, is it working?

With Orca version 1.2b2 -- and previous versions -- when I try to open chrome://pippki/content/pref-ssl.xul I get sent to a Yahoo! page that begins with "Are you looking for: D?" and the address in the URL bar gets converted to this:

jar:file:///D:/Program Files/Orca/chrome/pippki.jar!/content/pippki/pref-ssl.xul

In fact, the only one of this shortcuts that is working for me is chrome://browser/content/preferences/preferences.xul...

You must remember that Orca is still in its infancy. It has not been too long out of beta and has advanced quickly. The developers are currently busy working on Avant v12 which should take the platform to a complete new level. As a result of this we shall see the emergence of Orca v2 which is developed in parallel to Avant and would share many of its features. The requests section is monitored and acted upon once other issues are resolved.
