Well, that bit should work, it's worked for some time now (although some 
of the workarounds were still in place until recently). Alternatively 
you could try using the SetFields function - there's a basic example in 
pref-cache.xul - which gets called whenever your page is unloaded.

>2. I don´t know how to stop the preferences dialog to stop closing in the doOnOk
I don't think this is possible, sorry. If you can't dynamically validate 
preferences (using oninput or whichever handler is appropriate) then 
those preferences that need validation could be accessed via a 
subdialog, perhaps...
