Pref UI: Category column completely blank


(SeaMonkey :: Preferences, defect, P1)



(Not tracked)



(Reporter: paulmac, Assigned: matt)


If you open up Preferences using 10/12 build, you will see that the Category
section on the left is completely blank. The right side shows up correctly, and
you can in fact click in the left column and change the various panes, so they
are there, but you just can't see them.

Marking as a blocker.

This bug doesn't happen on WindowsNT (4.0, SP3), with the nightly build from
10/12/99: buildnum: 1999101114.

Open Edit | Preferences.. | ..
The following does occur:

In the Category section of the dialog, there's a legible listing for Appearance,
Navigator, Mail and Newsgroups, Composer, Offline, Advanced, Debug, et. al
Clicking on any of these list items invokes a description window in the right
It certainly happens on the 1999101208 build on NT 4 SP 5, though...

cpratt, can you reproduce this on win98?
backing layout out to 10/11/99 12 noon fixes this,
trying to narrow this down some more.
The same build exhibits the same defect on Windows 98, yes. (I tried a few
different color depths just for the heck of it, and that had no effect.)
Running a windows build with evaughan's recent bug fix, I don't see this problem
on my windows box anymore.

This may have been fixed by his change.
Saw on mcafee linux build that evaughns check in fixed it.
