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..:-(

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.
