Description

18 years ago
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.

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...

describe correctly...

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.

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.
