Go to edit/preferences. Set any preference. The one I did was "warn me about cookies". Close the pane. Then return to edit/preferences. The preference is no longer set. Also no preference file is being written out. This is a regression -- it was working about three days ago.
wonder if this is working yet? mcmullen, can you confirm?
Yep, that's supposed to work. John?

Yes it was working 3 days ago. And I'm pretty sure I didn't break it. Investigating now.

I did this and it works. (Apart from the crash closing the prefs window - that's a different bug, currently assigned to danm). The prefs file is written out, and the checkbox remains checked on a subsequent launch.
