Sorry, I forgot to get back to this. I tried in Safe Mode, still a problem. I'm using: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199pre) Gecko/20100426 SeaMonkey/2.0.5pre I don't have 2.0.3 or 2.0.4 installed, but I can if you really need me to test those version.
In today's update I'm seeing the same behaviour as OP. (This is definitely new today because I use the preference all the time)
Comment #5 should be fixed by bug 585476. I don't know how this affects the original issue reported here, but it may be worth retesting on trunk.
Works for me: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; rv:188.8.131.52pre) Gecko/20101119 SeaMonkey/2.0.11pre Works for me: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101119 SeaMonkey/2.1b2pre
