resetting the DNS cache: OS X, Firefox

 This is the manual approach for Firefox:
  • Introduce 2 new variables within about:config:
  • network.dnsCacheExpiration (integer / 0)
  • and network.dnsCacheEntries (integer / 0);
  • my problem with this: if you want to reset these switches, that's fine with Firefox, just that they get their data types changed to "string"; and once, you want to set them again to "integer / 0", you simply can't; for the time being I just assume, Firefox doesn't seriously consider the data type and accepts "string" for these 2 as well.
