Description (last modified by Shikitita)

Adapted from


Windows + 7 64bit + Firefox + German
ABP version 1.3.763.0

How to reproduce

  1. Click on the ABP button on the status bar at the bottom part of the window
  2. Click on settings
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 again as many times as desired

Observed behaviour

There can be more than one Settings page open at the same time, allowing the user to make different entries and saving... which one?

Expected behaviour

The Settings page should be able to be opened only once in order to make sure that the settings cannot overwritten. Leaving or closing the page should ensure then that the settings have been saved.

We could show some settings window from the engine, only one instance of which is running at a time, thus which can ensure that there is only one settings window.

To simplify the design of that window and reduce the amount of the development we can continue to host WebBrowser as we do for notifications.
