PMCommander Defaults

Unread postby x-15a2 » Wed, 16 Dec 2015, 17:33

I really like Pale Moon Commander and have been wondering if it would be possible to have a "Return to Defaults" button added. The Reset All Preferences button resets everything in Pale Moon (almost like a new user profile), but what I'm requesting is a button that only resets the settings that are available in PMC.

My guess is that this would create a lot of overhead for the utility and a lot of work for MC, but I thought I'd ask. Think of it as a Christmas wish! (God Jul!)

Fantastic! Thanks for considering and pursuing this request. Of course, I'm available for any testing that you'd like.

It's a Christmas Miracle!

I've attached a test version that implements this feature. Use on a portable test setup seems to do exactly what was intended, but feel free to give it a whirl.

First, thanks for the fast turn-around on this request and thanks for considering the request... both are very much appreciated.

I've done a series of cursory tests and the Reset Pale Moon Commander Preferences seems to work as designed. Of course, I haven't tested every possible combination, but each of the settings that I changed were correctly reverted to their default settings. I hope that others will install and test this test build and report back their thoughts and test experiences as well.

Again, thanks! This is a great addition to this very helpful tool.
