Does anyone know what to add to the about:config to stop Firefox 7 beta checking extension compatibility?

I've tried all the settings I can find online for previous versions and I can't get anything to work (changing them where applicable when they contain the version number in the setting).

Oh, dangit. Asked too soon. I forgot about the Add-on Compatibility Checker add-on. Installed that and it lets you enable potentially incompatible add-ons.

Well, maybe my forgetfulness will help someone else looking for the same thing.

And for those who like to live on the edge, go to about:config and modify the extensions.checkCompatibility setting.
