We recently changed Chimera so that molecules are initially displayed
in a fashion very similar to the "Interactive 1 (ribbons)" preset
rather than wireframe. This behavior is controlled by a new "smart
initial display" New Molecule preference, which defaults to true.
When that preference is true, many of the other preferences in that
category are overridden*. So to get back to the behavior you had
before, set "smart initial display" to false.
Perhaps this is also the issue with you problem with colordefs, but I
don't completely understand your description of that. Are we talking
about Command Line startup files? Do you mean that you put a file in
the list of Command Line file to read at startup and it's not in the
list the next time you start Chimera? (You did click the 'Save'

* all other prefs are overridden except for those dealing with initial
model color, metal complexes, Mol2 model naming, line width, and ball/
