|I found that the latest 5.9 version of Portable Offline Browser seem not be able to save any changes to the URL substitution rules. I added a rule to an old project and found the rule disappear even if clicking OK and save the changes a while later.|

|I tried to reproduce this, but the added rule was saved correctly. Can you please make two tests:
1. Open Properties - Parsing - URL Substitutes. Add a rule. Click OK button. And click URL Substitutes again.
Would the rule stay there?
2. If yes, click OK and OK again to close Properties dialog. Now click Properties again - URL Substitutes and see if the rule is still there?

|Two yeses to both the two questions. It occurs only occasionally. Another problem that sometimes occurs is that usually when you open a project after downloading. The name of the project will not be in bold print anymore. But sometimes restarting POB can cause some of the settings to what it was a day before (that is, the projects opened today is again in bold print).|

|It looks like something is wrong with the Project save place and it reverts to a backup saved copy of the webdown.dat file on the next start. Do you run it from USB device or from hard disk?
|Steven||09/25/2010 09:15 am|
|I run it from my harddisk.|

|I can make a version that logs what happens during writes of the webdown.dat file to the disk. This may show me what exactly happens. Would you agree to try this test logging version?
|Steven||09/29/2010 11:23 am|
|That's OK. But I'm not sure if or when it will occur again.|

|Here is the updated oe.exe file:
If it is unable to save the Projects correctly, it will show an error message on exit. Please press Ctrl+C on the message to copy it to clipboard and then paste to the forum message for me.

|Thank you. But what I'm using is POB|
