if *jslib:samples.file* (chrome://jslib/content/samples/file.xul) works, 
then jsLib i/o works.

There is no turning io on or off it is a library and needs to be used 
like this:

  include (jslib_io);

  var f = new File("c:\\tmp\\foo.dat");

  alert(f.exists());


See *jslib:io*

Or

 * jslib:help*
