Seen using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9b3pre) Gecko/2008011504 Minefield/3.0b3pre. Seen on Mac as well.

1. Go to Tools | Options and click on the Security Tab.
2. The Check box for "Tell me if the site I'm visiting is a suspected forgery is checked, but the radio button "Check by asking XXXX about each site I visit used to have Google prefilled, but it seems now you have to arrow down to get Google.

Expected: Google should appear in the list like it used to.
Actual: You have to arrow down to get Google to appear.
Hmm - so this looks like the manifestation of bug 388652 not being done.  It's marked blocking+, but P4, so it might not make it.  On the other hand, it's silly for us to have preferences that users can't select, so we need to at very least remove the UI, if not just escalate 388652.

Dave - what do you think?  Hiding the pref UI is simple, but I suspect that without the rest of 388652, users could still stumble on to it (e.g. about:config).
We should probably just bump the priority of 388652, it should be an easy fix...
I think this became visible when I landed bug 408940 yesterday.
Bug 412541 shows the same issue but with a different menu.

Is this fixed now?  On 2008-01-17, Florian checked in with the message

> Is this fixed now?

Yes.  Seems like the issue discussed in comments 1 and 2 is taken care of in bug 388652 so I guess I can resolve this bug.
