Unchecking "Don't ask at startup" has no effect. Next time starting Sunbird the profilemanager does not appear and Sunbird starts directly. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start profilemanager 2.Unchecking "Don't ask at startup" 3.Close profilemanager 4.Start Sunbird Actual Results: Sunbird starts directly without showing the profilemanager Expected Results: Profilemanager should start
Reporter: What version of Sunbird are you using? (This can be found in the Help->About window). If you're not using a nightly build, can you please test there also.
I use a trunk build. Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050815 Mozilla Sunbird/0.2+
Confirmed. The 'Don't ask at startup' checkbox properly remembers the value, but the profile manager does not startup each time after it is unchecked. This could be a toolkit problem, or a problem with our implementation of it. I'm not sure, so I'm leaving it as Calendar-General for now.

Ever confirmed: true
Thorsten, can you please check whether this also happens on Firefox or Thunderbird nightly trunk builds. If yes, then this is a general profile manager bug and should be moved to Toolkit -> XRE Startup.
Ok, i tested it on trunk builds of Firefox and Thunderbird. The same behaviour, no profile manager opens.

The "Exit" button is re-titled cancel button, so it doesn't cause changes to be saved... I guess it should.
Not really an XRE Startup bug, but I don't really see a better component for it...

Summary: Unchecking "Don't ask at startup" has no effect → when closing the Profile Manager with "Exit", the "Don't ask at startup" checkbox state isn't saved
I run into the same problem today while testing a trunk build on another pc. At first I wanted to create an additional profile with fx184.108.40.206 before running the trunk build. I unchecked the box and hit exit. Starting Minefield afterwards the default profile was used. Damn!! Also if we only have renamed the button the preference should be saved each time. If you just want to change the pref it's annoying that you have to start Firefox. The changed setting is only saved within acceptDialog and not on exit: http://mxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/toolkit/profile/content/profileSelection.js#142 That's why flushing the profileService doesn't save it: http://mxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/toolkit/xre/nsAppRunner.cpp#1747 http://mxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/toolkit/profile/src/nsToolkitProfileService.cpp#752
