I have a strange problem in Wireshark 2.0.2 and 2.0.3. Whatever I set in the View menu (for example uncheck View -> Packet Bytes), it is coming back to default setting (checked) after closing Wireshark and starting up again.

This problem exists on almost every option in View menu.

Please help

Looks like a bug to me (I have just verified that behavior in a more recent developer build). It looks like the view setting isn't saved to the profile (or restored) correctly. Please open a bug report for this.
