5) change the colors for Link, Active Link and Visited Link.
6) click OK.
7) open new blank page
8) create a link to a web page
9) browse and give it a title and filename.

notice it doesn't use the new colors you selected in the prefs. doesn't
look like its wired up.

more info:

it works if you select "Reader's Default Colors"

looks like you have the buttons mixed up.

The pref works fine -- the correct color is written to the prefs and used 
with a new page to set colors in the <body> tag.
The problem is the EditorOverride.css:

/* We suppress user/author's prefs for link underline, 
   so we must set explicitly
a:link {
  text-decoration: underline;
  color: blue;
We need to override the styling of a link so we can click on it to edit.
But then we don't get the correct color. Difficult problem.
Giving to Daniel as we will have to solve it in layout/CSS problem.

Not an easy problem, imo. Need to test and think about it, pushing to 0.9.5.
Charley: we probably have dups of this bug. I remember an AIM discussion between
Marc Attinasi and my self about link prefs and that sort of things.

Moving to future. Leaving as P2. If this really needs to be fixed for Mozilla1.0
please nominate for EDITORBASE.
