   <h2><a name="prefs"></a>Setting your preferences manually</h2>
   <p>If you can't use the preferences window because your Mozilla build is
   incompatible with your Annozilla build, you can set your preferences manually
   if you know how to find your <b>prefs.js</b> file. Just edit the file (while
   Mozilla is shut down) and add the following lines:</p>
   <pre>
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationAuthor", "[your full name]");
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationAutoLoad", false);
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationInsertIcons", false);
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationLoadInNewWindow", true);
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationPassword", "[your password]");
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationServer", "[annotation server]");
   user_pref("annozilla.annotationUser", "[your user account]");
