Reproducibility: I have been able to reproduce it many times as have other users (HERE and HERE)

Reproduce Steps: Minimize/maximize sub-forums. When you come back after a period of time or on a different computer, the last selections are not remembered.

Expected: I expected my selections to stay

Notes: I have been able to make it stick if I:
Expand everything then close the browser.
I reopen the browser and from the home page (not forum page) I minimize all the sub-forums I do not want expanded, then close the browser again.
I come back and they stay that way even when logging in from other computers.
If I expand or minimize a single forum, it throws it all off again and I have to repeat it.

Systems: Opera 11.60, 11.61, IE8, IE9, Windows XP Pro, Windows 7 Pro, 32 and 64 bit.

Isn't that the same as vB? It was linked to browser, and not user account, so if you cleared your browser/used another computer, that preferance wouldn't be there, so you'd just see the default.

I am not sure how it was in VB (pretty sure it was browser/cookie based) but Huddler saves it on their end.
No matter where I log in, it should look the same.

The bug also happens on the same computer, so cookies is not an issue.

Oh, did that come up in the sandbox? I don't recall hearing that Huddler did that differently. :o

Don't recall it in the sandbox coming up, just going by the fact I can use a computer I have never been on and all my site preferences are already set
