Actually, when checking this with firefox-3.1-0.6.beta2.fc11.x86_64
and xulrunner-1.9.1-0.7.beta2.fc11.x86_64, I cannot store any data by the steps provided in the description. There is no site in edit/preferences/advanced/network.

The steps to reproduce are missing one step (click the link on the top), and then I can reproduce it. But I will rather let it be fixed upstream (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=425645).

Red Hat will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.

Thank you for the bug report.
