Description of problem:
Anyone who has installed Real Player on Windows will remember their infamous preferences screens, which showed fairly sensible defaults for the parts of the preferences on screen, but which chose the opposite for preferences you had to scroll to see.

The firewall config screen shows a list of disabled services. If you scroll down, you will see that the single hidden service (SSH) is enabled.
Sensible? Perhaps, but it shouldn't be hidden, especially not for the sake of a single line.

This is simply because we have to pick a size for that combo box.  If I make it
bigger, it might look odd on some resolutions.  If I make it smaller, more stuff
will be hidden.  The fact that just one thing is hidden and that it's ssh is
coincidental.  Hopefully, people will scroll through the list rather than
blindly take the defaults.

Even with it being coincidence, though, it's less than ideal.  Maybe sort by the
port #? :-)

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2006-01-21 10:09:34 UTC
Or sort by enabled services first?

Comment 4 Chris Lumens 2006-01-23 16:30:38 UTC
How about sorting by service name, since that's the text that's being displayed?
