Description

18 years ago
This bug comes out of bug 28883.

To reproduce:
- Enter these 2 lines in your prefs.js file:
    user_pref("font.name.serif.x-western", "Times New Roman");
    user_pref("font.name.serif.x-western", "QWEQWEQWE");
- Launch Mozilla and go the font prefs panel
==> Bug: the selected font defaults to the first font in the list.

Expected behavior:
We should ignore font names that don't exists (like "QWEQWEQWE"). The selected 
font should stay the last known good font.
