Thanks, Cameron. That restored the gopher functionality in my 
Firefox installation.

As a reference to anyone else who tries this, you don't 
explicitly delete the about:config preference, but reset it to 0 
and then restart Firefox, which removes it from the preferences list.

I think for the time being I'll use HGopher on my Windows box. I 
notice the stock bookmark file in 
is all dead links. It might be easier for beginners to replace 
the bookmarks with currently active links, or provide a file of 
active bookmarks in a separate but easy-to-find file.
