BTW, how do you submit your themes to themes.mozdev.org?

I've added the theme to <a href="http://texturizer.net/phoenix/themes.html">Phoenix Help</a>, but the link seems to be completely dead. It took over a minute just to display the page. I will add a screenshot as soon as I can install the theme :)

The only thing that Apple might possibly object to are the faux-translucent navigation icons--and the last time I checked, Apple does not have a copyright on translucency. This theme was in no way based on any Apple UI elements. Almost all of the toolbar icons were culled from other themes and modified to fit in a unified scheme. In fact, I was trying to make a theme that blended well with the standard Windows interface.

But make no mistake, this is not a MacOS X theme. It was never intended to be one, and it never will.

However, it may be possible to mistake it for one because it is almost as logical and well thought-out as an Apple interface. ;)

First of all this is a great theme, and I like the icons/graphics, however while using it I found a couple of things that made me remove and go back to the default theme:

- I can't open Preferences window. Phoenix tries to increase the amount of memory and my CPU usage goes to 100% without opening the preferences window

- When clicking on an xpi file the default window size is a bit too small to contain all of the descriptive text and I need to resize the window in order to be able to access install and cancel buttons

My host server does not have a MIME-type set for xpi files... :(. I've updated the link on the Phusion page to use Javascript to install the xpi. Hopefully that will fix the problem.

I can't reproduce either of these behaviors. Anyone else having the same problems? What version of Phoenix are you using?

I am using Phoenix 0.4 on Win2k

Actually I just reinstalled your theme after removing all the themes and deleting chrome.rdf and after installing your theme I restarted the browser and the problems are gone... hmm.. weird.

It works, but I would like the option of large icons, not just small.

It needs bigger buttons. Those things are tiny, even at 1024x768. I guess I value being able to click my buttons over screen real estate. Looks pretty, though. Also, it needs a new throbber.
