Improve the Debug, Exceptions dialog
The Debug, Exceptions dialog is very painful right now.
Here are some suggestions for improvement:
The checkboxes should be on the left, so that they're easier to line up to the text.
It should have a filter/search box.
It should handle the space key to toggle the selected row.
It should support multi-select (see above)
It should be resizable.
This suggestion is now complete, starting with Visual Studio 2015 CTP 6: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudio/archive/2015/02/23/visual-studio-2015-ctp-6-and-team-foundation-server-2015-ctp-released.aspx

The second part of this suggestion (profiles) is covered by: http://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio/suggestions/3352678

But most importantly - opening the exceptions dialog should not take several seconds!

Jay - there are two checkboxes if Just My Code is enabled. For JMC, I really think this dialog needs to do something better (esp. if the other checkbox is grayed out)

Regarding SPACE to toggle selected row: sometimes there are two checkboxes for each exception. In that case, you can use ALT-T and ALT-U to toggle them.
I heartily agree that it needs the ability to save profiles. Often, I'll just want to break when certain types of Exceptions are thrown. The ability to filter down and select specific exceptions is next to useless without being able to save a profile.
