Summary 0007808: PreferenceBrowser cleanups needed
Description When checking out the 4.5 rc3 image -

One thing we probably ought to clean up at some point is the Preferences. There’s plenty of scope for confusion in the button row;
the ‘default’ button doesn’t set things to how the image is delivered - at the very least the flaps seem to turn on. (Looks like Preferences class>defaultValueTableForCurrentRelease would need whacking on)
‘save’ & ‘save to disk’ would seem redundant (I know they’re actually different but would any new user?)
similarly ‘load’ & ‘load from disk’
save & load to disk only load a specific file with no option to choose which one
the balloon help is sufficiently translucent as to be almost indecipherable
… and the text is often confused
the themes seem rather out of date - ‘out of the box’ is for 3.2? Wow.

I very, very, rarely touch preferences, which is why I don’t think I’ve really noticed this before. I’ll Mantisize the above.
