You might need Firefox 3 cause I got it to work. Pretty nice easter egg.

Well the about: commands on firefox are commonly used to help find out things about the browser.

about:

Just typing "about:" will show general and version information. It's kind of short for about firefox :)

about:mozilla

It's a firefox easter egg. Try it.

about:blank

Shows a blank page.

about:config

Shows Firefox configuration.

about:cache

Shows information about Firefox cache. You can even browse the files in the cache

about:credits

Shows the list of contributors who helped develop Firefox.

about:plugins

Displays a list of plugins installed on Firefox

about:buildconfig

Information about the particular build of Firefox. Of interest to only geeks :)
