I have changed the maximum number of pages to be saved in the recent pages menu
in my preferences, and the new value is saved.  However, Moxilla will still only
remember 9 previous pages, no matter what I set the value to.  I have tried
different values and restarted Mozilla and the computer numerous times, but
although the preferences say I have a larger memory, only 9 previously viewed
pages are saved.  The same thing happens if I lower the number instead of
raising it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Edit - Preferences
2. Go to Composer
3. Under "Recent Pages Menu", change Maximum number of pages listed.
4. Close Mozilla and restart the computer.
Actual Results:  
I would open Mozilla back up and go to any reandom 11 webpages.  Mozilla will
only remember the previous 9 and the one you're on - totalling ten, as is default.

Expected Results:  
Mozilla should have changed the default value to whatever number I changed the
maximum number of pages stored.

Only tried in modern theme, didn't think to try changing themes.

Unable to duplicate this symptom in Mozilla 1.3 final, Windows 2000
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

Note that the hotkey accelerators [1,2,3,...0] are not applied to the items
in the menu after the tenth.
