Trying to use the rules.dat file from precedent version (1.2) not all filtering
rules result as enabled.
The disabled rules can't be edited (edit button disabled).
An "Alert" box appears containing the following information:
The filter was probably created by future version of Mozilla/Netscape.
You cannot enable this filter because we don't know how to apply it.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

Actual Results:  
No full compatibility with precedent versions of Mozilla.

Expected Results:  
As before, possibility to get the entire user's directory coming from the past
with all the filters working.

This should receive a particular mention for the comic efford of the programmers
involved. :-)

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
