So, currently the problem with the Expert Configuration is the way it is
implemented. Right know, It implemented as a direct copy of Mozilla
Firefox's about:config page. It is just a table with 4 columns, with about
130,000 entries. When the accessibility tools are open, it tries to create
a lot of labels for each entry I think and it makes it really slow.

Somewhere in the bugzilla I think Caolan mentioned it can be implemented as
a tree-view because the options are in a tree structure and it would fit
better then a simple table. Also it solves the dialog's usability issues
too. I hope that will solve the accessibility problems too.

Have fun,
