This may be Mac-specific (?). In the editor, the recent files menu doesn't update. Steps to reproduce: Open a file in Composer (fileA) Open another file in Composer (fileB) Switch back to window with fileA Check Recent Pages menu I expect that fileB will be listed first in the Recent Pages menu. Instead, fileB isn't shuffled to the proper location or added to the menu at all (if it hadn't been opened before). Chris--is it possible that the menu isn't rebuilding itself in the mac menu code? If that's true, does that mean the bookmarks menu isn't updating itself after being edited? Or mail folders listed in a menu? Can anyone reproduce this on Linux or Windows?

Target Milestone: --- → M19
This was working last time I tested it on Windows (a few days ago) I know there's been problems just on Mac
Target Milestone: M19 → M18
tested this using win98 on build 2000092005 comm build and it works correctly. Asking Sujay to check it out on linux
This appears to be Mac-specific. I can't reproduce it on my Linux build. Ryan can't reproduce it on his Windows build.
Kathy, can you work on this one? On my mac the list is corrupted and unusable

Should be fixed now...
this is fixed (thanks saari!) I do get a new assertion in my mozilla debug build: ###!!! ASSERTION: Not implemented: '0' file nsMenu.cpp line 477

REopening because I don't see it working on all platforms now.. simply follow the above testcase... Steps to reproduce: Open a file in Composer (fileA) Open another file in Composer (fileB) Switch back to window with fileA Check Recent Pages menu I do not see File 1 and File 2 in either of the Recent page menus for these files on ANY platform.. I'm using 9/29 branch build.

commonly used feature, is very visible, fix is low-risk Kathy, please follow the checkin rules -- get a patch to fix the problems, get it super-reviewed, get module owner approval. The reviewer and module owner must make an entry in the bug, once all of that is done, remove the NEED INFO in the rtm+ block. I will then pop it to pdt for approval.
I can't reproduce this bug on Linux (trunk) or Macintosh (trunk or branch) Sujay--can you help out with this one? What builds are people using to see this bug? When did this break? Everyone--remember, you do *NOT* see the name of the file currently being edited in the Recent Files menu (as spec'd).
PDT agrees [rtm need info] until patch and code reviews are available.

ok I wasn't aware of the spec. its fine....this was the issue. -remember, you do *NOT* see the name of the file currently being edited in the Recent Files menu (as spec'd).

verified in 9/29 build.

I don't think this was ever verified as being a problem on any platform except Macintosh so changing platform/OS back. Thanks Sujay for verifying...
