Kevin,

The drop down box for search does not appear to be persistent after loading
the latest nightly. What cookie needs to be present for this to work (so I
can check for it on my client machine)?

Thanks.

a cookie is exacly what it uses. They are a pain to use, but it coudl be
done.

might as well create the request regardless. The only way to really know if
others want it as well is to put it there and let people vote.

nothingn shoudl have changed in recent days, so if it used to work, it should
still be working.

the cookies you should find are:
Slimserver-Browserpage - url for browser choice
Slimserver-player - ID for last selected player
Slimserver-search - non-localised string for last search choice.
