Focus should not be on "Don't ask me again" when I quit Transmission

Bug #359268 reported by positivek on 2009-04-10
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
transmission (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

When I tell Transmission to quit (menu: Torrent-->Quit), a dialog box / confirmation box pops up that asks, "Quit Transmission?".

The "Don't ask me again" checkbox has the focus when the box pops up. As a result, I cannot simply press <Space> to accept the confirmation to quit, because doing so just toggles the checkbox.

I believe that the normal design guidelines would suggest that the focus should be on the expected action, the "Quit" button. It should be changed to be this way.

Note that some other apps put the focus in the "quit" button by default. E.g. Firefox 3.0.8 does this when you try to quit and it asks if you want the session saved. It also has a "Do not ask me next time" toggle checkbox -- but it does not have the focus.

Transmission 1.34 (6778)
Description: Ubuntu 8.10
