     262network.proxy.socks_remote_dns  user    set     boolean         true
     263}}}

     266'''Be careful, though:  In some versions of Firefox (e.g., 1.0.7 under Linux) this option exists, but does nothing.  In this case, you may want to use privoxy or similar projects.'''  To find out whether your version implements remote DNS resolution correctly, you may try out a URL ending in `.onion`, like [http://6sxoyfb3h2nvok2d.onion/tor/ this one] leading to the [http://6sxoyfb3h2nvok2d.onion/tor/ the Hidden Tor Wiki].  If the Hidden Wiki shows up, remote DNS resolution works.
