Shouldn't user's saved queries be stored in the database rather than in cookies?
The way it is now, I can't access my stored queries if I log in to BugZilla from
a different machine, and lose them altogether if somehow I blow away my cookie
file.  That sucks.

Reassigning to dmose@mozilla.org, who now has front-line responsibility for
all Bonsai and Bugzilla bugs.

Reassigning back to me.  That stuff about me no longer being the front-line
person responsible for Bugzilla and Bonsai turned out to be short-lived.
Please pardon our confusion, and I'm very sorry about the spam.

I've personally concluded that the stored queries feature should just be
eliminated.  Browser bookmarks work better in every respect.  Terry may have
different ideas, however.  -Bryce Nesbitt

Yes, but bookmarks have the same problem as any data stored on the client: if
you go to a different browser you don't have access to them.  Also, what I'd
like to do is be able to create a stored query and bookmark it, and then change
the query later without changing the bookmark (or any HTML pages that have
a link to the query).

Named queries are now stored on the database, not in cookies.  (Backwards
compatability code will quietly move any existing queries you may have had into
the database.)

I'm keeping the feature around because I plan on doing one or two cool things
with them.  I've already done one silly thing; go explore the user preferences
page.
