saving last entered values -- continuity

I like to view my bugs in the grid mode, but the view keeps resetting.
Why not remember the view mode in a cookie or on the server?

Every time I add a new case, I have to change the priority level. Similarly, why not remember this setting?

In Word or Excel or any other desktop app, settings made in dialog boxes are remembered -- this creates a continuity of experience. The same methodology should apply to views and default values in FogBugz

The view mode (grid vs. list) is saved with your filter. If you see it changing, it's probably because you're loading filters. Just resave those filters with the mode you like and you'll be all set.

There is a similar problem with the Saved Filters combobox at the bottom of the Grid view -- it resets to the first filter in the list after I apply any filter.
