Bug Description

When changing font settings (Preferences -> Display -> Fonts -> Advanced) - when I change those settings and select different fonts are use the checkboxes, the settings don't stay when I close the dialog box. I then go back to the Advanced Fonts dialog and the original settings are there and not the ones I selected.

Check if you aren't trying to select an .otf font, thunderbird seems to not support those. You may install a .ttf font and try to select it, to see if it will work.
