Prefs: External HTML source default is C:\My Documents
This does not make sense on Mac/Linux.
This is the Apprunner|Edit|Prefs|Composer presfs pane.
Assignee: kostello → cmanske
Target Milestone: M6
Re-assigning to Charley Manske. Please coordinate with Akkana and Kin for the
best XP way to handle this.
What do I do to expose this bug?
there's a windows-style filename for the default in the
said text field described above.
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
Charley: this is coming from modules/libpref/src/init/editor.js.
We'd be better off removing those lines entirely than leaving them that way,
since the current value is guaranteed not to work on two of the three platforms.
You should use nsIFileLocator in some way for this. Perhaps we need to add
another enumerated value for the default location of new documents. I'm willing
to act as guide on this.
Target Milestone: M6 → M9
"C:\My Documents" was removed from the default pref file.
Will work on setting an appropriate default later

I've explained this elsewhere. Popup bugs belong to XPFE widget, not editor.
They work better now anyway with hyatt's fixes to many of the popup widget bugs.
