Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-02-19 15:44:33 EST
Up until today, when you did a query the resulting page
had the links to the bug numbers done as ordinary A HREF
links to a GET-style CGI-BIN. Today, they've turned into
little form buttons. I think it would be better to have
them as the old style, for a couple of reasons:
- you cannot open a form in a new window with button 2
  in Netscape
- as ordinary links, they showed which ones had been
  visited and which ones hadn't been
- it looked visually nicer and took up less screen space
  (so more summary fit on one page)

 Possibly the change was made to move away from using
cookies (I noticed that I didn't get one today on it),
but I honestly prefer cookies to the new layout.

OK, some new code is in place that should restore the old behavior
without having to revert back to a cookie based setup.  Hopefully this
will make everyone happier.
