If a user has opened the preferences window, and then moves it but does not close it, and then proceeds to use other app windows (browser windows, mail client, editor, etc.), selecting to edit preferences from any of the open windows does the correct thing: It brings the preference window to the front in focus in the last known position. However, should the user dismiss the window, the last known position is remembered when the window is reopened. This is incorrect. Upon dismissing the window, the next time that the user opens the preferences, it should be positioned relative to the window from which the preferences are opened. Effectively, while it is still open, the user knows that it is open and uses it relative to what the user is currently doing. Once dismissed, the prior interaction with the preference window is complete. Once opened again, the interaction is a new one, and not a continuation of the previous one.

If user move Preferences window to some position then there was some reason for it and not saving it's position is bad idea here. Proposing WONTFIX
