I'm having problems setting my prefrences at wikibooks.
 It seems only the last two pages I set are saved, all
the others revert to either empty boxes or select the
top item on the list for the multiple choice selections
(skin and navigation bar choices).  I'm using Netscape
6.2.1 on Mac OS 9.0.4.  gentgeen

Confirmed with Netscape 6.2.1 running on Mac OS X under Classic.

Only the last-displayed tab's contents seems to be submitted. Probably bug in the really old browser... anyone still using 
that version really, really needs to upgrade.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-06-02 05:55:59 UTC
This is pretty clearly a browser bug, and Netscape 6.x was particularly buggy! Saving 
preferences works fine under Netscape 7.02 for classic Mac OS, so if encountering this problem 
still, upgrade to the current Netscape release for your operating system.

(changed title.)
(I never discovered a problem w/ Netscape 7.1, Windows)
