  1. Open Rules view
  2. Uncheck any declaration and edit its value
  3. Enable the declaration again to apply.

Expected Results
The declaration should appear to be enabled

Actual Results
The declaration is crossed out.

We may have regressed this when we started using <input type="checkbox"> elements (which have their own state) instead of a <div /> styled like a checkbox. When we programmatically change the state after editing a value, we probably don't change the input's checked attribute value.

Good hunch Florens, I just ran mozregression and it did confirm that this was a regression caused by bug 1491811.
