The strange thing is - the checkboxes show up fine on SUSE 9.2...

I found the same problem in Ubuntu, but I think it only happens if you use the Ubuntu version of Firefox (from the repository), not the standard Linux Firefox in Ubuntu.

I think I know what happened here - should be fixed in the next development build.

There we go - http://adblockplus.org/development-buil ... ird-coming

Maybe somebody can test whether the issue is fixed. To open the welcome dialog you type about:config in the location bar. Then copy this string into the location bar and press Enter:
Code: Select all
javascript:void window.openDialog("chrome://adblockplus/content/tip_subscriptions.xul", "_blank", "chrome,centerscreen,resizable=no,dialog=no")

Yup, the checkboxes are now there on Linux and work perfectly. :)

What was the problem?

I used a CSS rule to hide the label that wasn't explicit enough :)

Oh. Why would that only be a problem on Linux?

In any case, I'm glad it's fixed. :)

It seems that checkboxes are implemented slightly differently there to support native themes.
