User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv: Gecko/2008092510 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-GB; rv: Gecko/2008092510 Ubuntu/8.04 (hardy) Firefox/3.0.3

I visit a website http:/www.example.com and select an alternative style sheet (View -> Page Style).  But every time I visit another page on that site during that session, I have to manually select the alternative style sheet.

It would be nice to have an option for Firefox to remember alternative style sheet preferences for a site.
A dialog could have the following options:

Remember alternative style sheet selections 
[ ] Never  (default)
[ ] This session only
[ ] Always
[ ] this page (default)
[ ] the domain name

Only issues I can see would be if somebody wants to remember selections for multiple machines in a domain (e.g. www1.example.com and www2.example.com), but this is minor.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Visit a site with alternative style sheets
2. Select an alternative one
3. Go to another page on that site

This request can be divided into two parts:
 #1:  Remember the selection across sessions.  This part appears 
      to be a duplicate of bug 216537.
 #2:  Use this selection for other pages on the same site.  

Bug 83663 discusses remembering the selected alternative style sheet when following links within a site, which is a subset of #2.
This is a mass search for bugs which are in the Firefox General component, are
UNCO, have not been changed for 500 days and have an unspecified version. 

Reporter, can you please update to Firefox 3.6.10 or later, create a fresh profile, http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/managing+profiles, and test again. If you still see the issue, please update this bug. If the issue is gone, please set the status to RESOLVED > WORKSFORME.
