> Thanks! I never would have guessed the name ('keyword' indeed), although I then saw that I already (some time ago) had changed "keyword.URL" to "http://localhost:1

(18.104.22.168) seems totally dead.
> In any case, I would like a list that is indexed by functionality, rather than the obvious list that, given a preference name, explains it in detail (e.g., 'keyword' is not the same as 'search' in my vocabulary). Of course, the obvious list might be adequate if fed to (e.g.) Google, or even used with a simple text search such as Firefox's Ctrl-F or grep.
about:config flags are generally not documented and subject to change,
though you might find some documentation in the code, e.g. this:
If an about:config flag is useful, the right way to expose it is
probably via the preferences page, or alternatively enterprise policies
I guess? (Mike would know)
Perhaps file a bug requesting either of them for keyword.enabled?
