So why are their preferences not stored under the "security" icon in Mozilla's preferences? I suggest that "Cookies" (or "Privacy"), "Passwords", and "Warnings" be three tabs in the "Security" preferences. It would be simpler and easier than making people try to remember which of those three things were in "Privacy" and which were in "Security". Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:

know what I mean?
Well, that's what I think anyway. What do you think, Brad?
Oh, I concur completely. It was awfully smart of you to point that out.
Why, thank you. It sure is quiet in here.
We're still seeking the ultimate prefs layout.
Time to revisit this bug.
I agree. Should be as follows with three tabs: Security Panel - Cookies - Passwords - Warnings This would also make the Appearance pane look less out of place with it's tabs.
Aside from the prefpane name, I agree. Cookies aren't a security function. Passwords could go either way. (DeerPark has history, forms, passwords, download history, cookies, and cache in its Privacy pane.) Protection? Simon, when we add all of those certificate-related features, would anything go under this new "security" prefpane? Inspecting stored certificates?

i'm just loathe to add tabs to the panes. users have a hell of a time finding things inside pref panes with tabs.
(In reply to comment #10) > Aside from the prefpane name, I agree. Cookies aren't a security function. Well, restricting and deleting cookies is a privacy issue, and privacy is something that people want to keep secure. So I think either "Privacy" or "Cookies" works well for the tab name inside a "Security" preference pane.

"Navigation" and "Appearance" both have tabs, and it is a standard interface element, so I don't see why we should start avoiding them now. Aren't we trying to let this creature take advantage of Mac ways of doing things?
"Navigation" got busted up a long, long time ago, and IMO "Appearance" should get busted up into "Appearance" and "Fonts", too. That would give us much-needed flexibility in reworking the "Fonts" pane so that there aren't those hideous selects for the "Advanced" prefs. (And it was wierd being the only pane with tabs). If passwords don't make sense under "Privacy", then bust "Privacy" into "Cookies" and "Passwords", too. But if we bust both of them, we'd need to either increase the default width of the prefs window (and thus re-layout every pane) so that they all show in the toolbar without the overflow menu by default or change back to the old "grouped" prefs layout (a la System Prefs under 10.3).
