Not sure if this is XPCOM Registry...? GUI-Settings are not remembered anymore (worked in earlier builds), using build 2001021912 (also in 2001021901 or so). This includes: + window-size (very annoying if Mozilla always opens a tiny window) + pane-settings ("My Sidebar" always pops up on the left border) + column-settings in the Mailer + sorting in the mailer These settings are not even recalled in the same session..:-(
it's localstore.rdf not xpcom reg. try renaming that file and running moz again.
I have a localstore.rdf in my profiles-directory. I was only unsure about which component the bug belongs to. It worked with earlier builds, same settings-file.

This is on BeOS, yes? (It's what you used to file this bug report so I assume that is true).
Yes, it's BeOS, of course:^) (thought filling out the "OS"-popup was sufficient? ,-)
Yes, just wanted to be sure (I'm dense sometimes). Sometimes people file bugs from different machines than the bug was observed on (or in a different boot OS). Thanks. CC: some Be people
Gregor: are you confirming that renaming the settings file doesn't change anything? It still doesnt save changes?
No, settings are not remembered, no matter what names I try (both xpcom.reg and localstore.rdf). Just to go sure - we are talking about the files in mozilla/defaults/profile and the directory "en-US" in there, right? (in case of a non-localized build)

No. That location, bin/defaults/profile/..., is where the default copy of these files are located. You are looking for the localstore.rdf that is in your user profile, but I have no idea where that is on BeOS. Do a search of your hard drive for 'localstore.rdf' and look for one that is located under <profilename>/<randomstring>/localstore.rdf.
I discovered that the defaults were also present in /boot/home/config/settings/Mozilla. I copied over the defaults from the latest build (23. Feb), and now the settings are remembered! Sorry for bugging you (in every sense of the word;)

yes ~/config/settings/Mozilla would be the correct place for Mozilla to leave it's profile, glad you fixed your problem.
