There appears to be a typo/error in the userprefs.js file, FireFox gives the following error message, and is even kind enough to give the solution -not that its a difficult one to work out.

The error appeared when I searched the 'function list' for the ucfirst function giving the page: <>

Warning: test for equality (==) mistyped as assignment (=)?

not 100% sure but looking at the code this is not an error. 
Most likely firefox is just being overzealous.

Having checked through the JavaScript the function 'getCookie' returns 'null' if there is no value found, which then evaluates to false.
