You can just select the account you want to modify in the Account-dropdown and
ultimatly press OK once when you are ready with all accounts.

Doesn't this work? It definitly works for me with a Linux build from today.

Mozilla 1.7.7 OK button on Junk Mail Controls dialog does not dismiss the
dialog.  I checked and the prefs.js file seems to have been updated byt the OK
button appears to do nothing.

If I hit the Cancel button is dismisses the dailog but I would have expect the
changes I had made in the dialog to not be applied, but they were.

This is really bad (aka., non-intuitive behavior).
