When editing using about::config it warns that I'll void the warranty. What's this warranty about?

It's just a joke the people over at Mozilla made. It doesn't actually void your computer warranty. It just means be careful of what you change.

    As far as I know nope. It's just a joke they put in their product. Some companies do this. Like google for example. google.com/onceuponatime/tisp Nov 4, 2012 at 9:23

    TiSP was simply Google's April Fools' Day hoax. It's become an annual tradition now, getting more complex by the year with all services joining in with their own versions.

    BTW, the official Mozilla description is: "If you see a page with the warning message, This might void your warranty!, click the button labeled "I'll be careful, I promise!", to continue (in fact, there is no warranty whatsoever, it's more a joke to ensure that users are aware of what they are about to do). Use the checkbox there to avoid the warning in the future."
