Various selection lists in Edit\Preferences should initialize with the current value selected (to show the current value), but instead initialize with the first item in the list selected. A few examples: 1) Appearance\Themes. I am using the Classic skin, but when I open this preferences panel, "Modern" is selected by default. "Classic" should be selected by default. 2) Navigator\Internet Search. I am using the netscape search (default), but when I open this panel, it displays "Search using: AOL Search" (which happens to be the first thing in the list). It should display "Search using: Netscape Search" which is the current setting. I'm not exactly sure which other select-lists do this, but I think there are at least several others with the same behavior. Using build 2000083111 on Windows 98 SE. Not sure if this happens on other platforms (I will check if it does on my linux machine and post additional comments then.)
i see (1), so confirming... iirc, this also happens on mac and linux.
I've checked and this also happens on linux build 2000090108. (I assume it happens for all platforms.)
nav triage team: is this still a bug, marking works for me (in Windows) for both themes and search with build 2000092604. Also works for Verah with 1 day older build. M Future
vrfy. if this crops up again, rather than reopening this bug, could you pls file a seperate bug for each pref panel for which there are uninitialized values? the reason for that is that there a different owners for each of the panels (in fact, there might already be bugs for such problems, but i cannot find 'em after a couple of queries, alas.)
bug 57532 filed-- reopen of case #1, as requested. Windows build 2000101908
