Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080311 Firefox/2.0.0.13
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.13) Gecko/20080311 Firefox/2.0.0.13

I have FF2.0.0.13 and FF3Beta5. When I update beta version and run the 2.0 branch, I am prompted with security messages: "you are about to leave...", "data sent unencrypted..." and so on. I make my preference know, including deselecting the checkbox of repeat confirmation, so I shouldn't get the messages. It works until the next update of the beta version. Somehow my preferences are overwritten and I am prompted with the same messages again. very annoying.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. have stable and beta version of FF
2. update beta version
3. launch stable version and visit secure sites
Actual Results:  
previously set preferences of not to be notified about security warning have no effect.

Expected Results:  
no security warnings to show up once the preference is made known.

I have not found a workaround, and I have updated the beta 3 times now.

One workaround is to set the relevant prefs in user.js.  (I use this workaround for a similar issue that I encounter due to switching between nightly builds and debug builds.)  Another workaround is to pick one version of Firefox and stick with it ;)
