Frustrating Bug with Buddy List Groups

Bug type: UI Functionality

Brief bug summary: If you hide the default group in your buddy list, every time you open your buddy list it will be hidden even if you expanded it before closing it.

More details: You can click on the default group to hide people online on your buddy list. If you click it again, it'll expand the list and show everyone that is currently online.

Steps to reproduce: Open Buddy List ==> Click on the GREY BAR labled "Default Group" (XX/XX) ==> Close Buddy List ==> Repeat Steps 1 & 2 ==> Observed Result is that the Default Group will continue to be hidden, even if you previously expanded it before closing.

I believe this bug appeared after some QoL changes were made to the UI. This is quite frustrating as you'll have to expand your Default Group to see who is online every time you open your buddy list. You can work around this by placing all your friends into a newly created group. If this bug occurs to a group that isn't the Default Group, I found that right-clicking that group, selecting edit and selecting ok afterwards will fix it. This work around does not work with the Default Group as you cannot edit or modify the Default Group.
