To reproduce: Go into Create New Profile Select a folder by pressing Change Folder button Go Back to page 1 Go Forward to page 2 The selected folder is now reset and not remembered! Expected: Folder is remembered!
this is not possible with the current implementation of FileSpecWithUI (if at all, I do not know of any usages of this dialog in windows that does this). you're right, this is a desirable fix, but it is just not possible at present. Reassigning to dougt and resummarizing as a feature request. doug, when FileWithUI (or whatever) is implemented, will we be able to do this?

Summary: Folder not remembered in Create New Profile → nsIFile UI should allow preselection of selected folder in folder picker.
Target Milestone: M16
Ok, not sure that I explained myself correctly: To reproduce: - Go into Create New Profile - Select a folder by pressing Change Folder button - Now the foldername is written out. - Go Back to page 1 - Go Forward to page 2 - Now the foldername that was written out is GONE...
Ok I think I'm gonna file another bug on the "real" problem that I didn't describe correctly...
pavlov is working on this...

very similar to bug 2226. We use the same file picker on unix for directories and files... on windows, a directory only thing uses a different one and it sounds like it just needs to store that directory.

Move to M21 target milestone.
Target Milestone: M20 → M21
Reassigning to component owner. The way I read the bug description, the complaint is that the New Profile wizard forgets what the user has input when they go Back and then forward again. This can be implemented no problem using the file picker interfaces we have now.
