Build: 2002061708, Mac OS 9.2 To reproduce: 1. Open the Preferences dialog. 2. Open the `Scripts & Windows' panel. 3. Look at the contents. What you see: 2. The panel is called `Scripts and Plugins', which (a) is a spelling mistake, (b) makes it harder to find the prefs to control the opening/moving/resizing of windows, and (c) makes it harder to find the prefs which really *are* about plug-ins. 3. * There is a checkbox for mail/news plug-ins, which has nothing to do with either scripts or windows. * There is a groupbox surrounding the checkbox, which is useless since there's only one checkbox. What you should see: * The panel as it looked before this checkbox was added. * The mail/news plug-ins checkbox should be either with the rest of the plug-ins prefs (the Helper Apps category) or with the rest of the mail/news prefs (the Mail & Newsgroups branch), not in this completely unrelated panel.

Is there a seperate bug for this issue on Windows or should this be All/All?
Because maybe some day even non-geeks may want to use mozilla. Of course it doesn't look that way now.
Markus: What's your point? Why would a non-geek care about enabling or disabling cookies in email?
Or won't even bother to search for one. But he wouldn't need to. Since it would work out-of-the-box.

mpt, any comments before I go looking for r/sr?
If the "Enable JS for Mail & Newsgroups" checkbox on the Message Dislay dialog is checked, do the 8 checkboxes under "Allow scripts to:" on the Navigator Scripts and Windows dialog apply to mail and news as well? If so, that relationship isn't very obvious. Things that are directly related like that, should be grouped together.
I can't begin to imagine why anyone would ever want to allow mail messages (or especially newsgroup articles) to open popups, or resize windows, or most of the other things that the checkboxes control for webpages. If those things were to be enabled for mailnews, let it be in a hidden pref and not by further gunking the scripts & windows panel.
bug 80415 [mozilla1.2alpha, email@example.com] - Message Display, Composition and Send Format pref panels don't fit. No you may not abuse the message display panel for this stuff until the message display panel actually fits, at which point you probably won't be able to add the content you want because doing so will make it not fit again. please make a new panel.
