navigator lost (settings)

I "upgraded' navigator from vers 4.05 to vers 4.07 on a Linux 2.0.x
system.  The exact navigator i downloaded was:
navigator-v407-us.x86-unknown-linux2.0_libc5.tar.gz

I set the 'advanced' settings, turning off java, javascript,
stylesheets, autoinstall, and send-email-address-as-passwd.  I also set
'do not accept or send cookies'.

Then, while browsing i opened a new browser window by selecting "Navigator
Window" from the file menu and it looked as if javascript had started
working in the new window.

I re-examined the advanced settings on the original window, and they were
unchanged.  But when i looked at the settings in the new window i saw:

Java: On
Javascript: On
Style Sheets: On
Autoinstall: On
Send Email addr...: On
The cookies setting had not changed.

This behavior does not happen with the corresponding 4.05 version of
Navigator.

Oh well,
Bill
