Re: "Hide close button for inactive..." option

I understand. I open tabs with a single click. If I have a number of them open, I always click the tab first to look at the content before I actually close it. Just would save moving from button to button. No big deal. I thought double clicking a tab did not do anything, and just assumed everyone us...

That is what I was referring to, importing fdf's. I have tried it again with 328.0 with a few other fdf files and they imported fine. I imported a lot of fdf files with 327.1 though and never had a problem.

Re: Form fields blank out

I believe I saw in the revision notes about .fdf files being fixed. As far as I could tell they were working okay in 327.1. In 328.0 they do not appear to be working. I will do some more testing when I can. Does this happen on your end? Might that be part of the same problem?
