Yes. I think it is fair for the app to optionally ask the user, but the 
default should be the OS settings *and* the app should be easy to revert 
to the default if the user changes the app from default (e.g. not have 
to hunt through settings in FF about:config)

I've seen that happen, where an adult lets vising nephew/niece use the 
computer and the they change settings the adult then has trouble 
figuring out how to revert. For accessibility it should be easy to go 
back to default.
