I've noticed a bug in SM 2.32b2 profile manager - when I open the profile manager and start SM the selected profile is not remembered. When I open SM again the last used profile is not preselected - the one before last is. However, the checkbox option "Default to this profile" is remembered, which makes it weird and inconsistent. The selected profile has always been remembered in previous versions as far as I remember. Is this a known bug?

The bug can result in unwanted situations - for example, say profile A is preselected, I choose profile B and check "Default to this profile" - SM starts with profile B. But next time I start SM it starts with profile A, which I didn't want to!

Problems with Beta version? Then you shouldn't recommending it for normal use:

Yeah, theoretically you are right but still I think being unable to login to a banking site is a more serious issue than this profile manager problem, which can be a nuisance but is easy to work around even for inexperienced users.

I have seen this, but just thought it was an oddity, so didn't really pay much attention to it.

Unfortunately I'm not in a position at the moment to (test &) Confirm (the Bug).
