Description

seeing on build 20020510091.0.0  while testing profile remigration
have pref set in 4.x for mail only open on launch
run ns 61 and migrate 4.x profile
browser launched- checked pref and it was mail only
updated to test machv - launched and remigrated profile - still only browser
launches.

rechecked with a profile created in 61 and same behavior

this is Linux only so far- not Windows, need to check Mac
i cannot seem to repro this using a non-migrated profile. i'll try again with a
fresh one, though.

esther, have you encountered this before?
oh, hrm --perhaps this should go to profile migration, rather than prefs?

however, do punt back if it's really a prefs issue. (without migration having
only mail set to open on launch works for me.)

I went back and created Mach V profile as well and it still did not honor 
mailonly prefs.  This did work last Friday and Monday as I did first pass of 
tests on profile remigration (one edge case was a mailonly client user)

It's a bit late to ask, but anybody still see this problem?
