The new line separator dialogue on 3.4 beta 3 gives the possibility to select line thickness on steps of 0.25 points, but do not accept a 0 pt line: i.e., it is not possible to set "no line"
OK, I just realized that instead of zero thickness you can use zero length by choosing the line to be 0 % of the page with, so this is not that important after all, just a change on behaviour.

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:

The problem is present on 3.5 beta2.

Thanks MJK for setting the Platform to "All". I have now been able to test this with v126.96.36.199 under Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64, MacOS 10.6.8, and Win7HP. All platforms exhibit the behaviour as described in comments #0 and #1.
Can this bug therefore be closed? It is really just the workflow / behaviour that is different and requires learning.

In Format -> Page -> Footnote tab, the Style drop-down has an option for None which does not work. I know this bug was originally reported to achieve the effect of no separator line but there should be a minimum size for the thickness of the line.
Ideally, Style should appear above Position in the dialogue because the first option should be whether or not you want a line. If the option for None is chosen then the other fields should be disabled.
