Thanks for the new theme and the notes on how to modify the themes to make them nicer. I wish there were more faqs on how to modify the userchrome.css and user.js file in Tb like there is for Firefox...

I was wondering why the status column is text and not a symbol for what has happened to the message like has been done with this them.

Again, this is a really nice theme. thanks for you work

You have ruined my day.

Why?

Well, because you have fixed the two icons, and that means that I will now have to find something else to complain about.


Furthermore, I suppose you expect me to thank for fixing the "File" and "Quick Note" icons.

I see this behavior when themes (any themes) are installed in Linux. Are you by chance using Linux? There is a way to edit that out of the user's chrome.rdf file. For some reason an ambiguous line gets inserted. Here's an example:
Code: Select all
<RDF:Seq about="urn:mozilla:skin:root">
    <RDF:li resource="urn:mozilla:skin:classic/1.0"/>
    <RDF:li resource="urn:mozilla:content:classic/1.0"/>
    <RDF:li resource="urn:mozilla:skin:crystal/1.0"/>
  </RDF:Seq>

Just delete the line that refers to "content:classic" and change it to this:
Code: Select all
<RDF:Seq about="urn:mozilla:skin:root">
    <RDF:li resource="urn:mozilla:skin:classic/1.0"/>
    <RDF:li resource="urn:mozilla:skin:crystal/1.0"/>
  </RDF:Seq>

Restart TB and the blank line should be gone.
Still passionate for Mozilla themes and extensions, just not actively developing them for public release anymore.

Thanks, CatThief, but, no, Windows XP, and not worth the bother of editing that file.

Omar, I have a question - I want to insert the following line @import url("chrome://global/skin/subskin/readicon.css"); into the theme's .jar file but I don't know where to put it. Can you please point me to the right direction?

By the way, do you know any good Firefox Gnome theme? Scratch's stock Gnome is my favorite but isn't yet updated :(

It's a little different if you want to add it into the theme. In the messenger directory, open up mailWindow1.css and find this-
Code: Select all
treechildren::-moz-tree-image(subjectCol) {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://messenger/skin/icons/blank16x16.png");
}

and a bit further down, this for newsgroups-
Code: Select all
treechildren::-moz-tree-image(subjectCol, news) {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://messenger/skin/icons/blank16x16.png");
}

Where it says blank16x16.png, just change it to mail.png, that should do it. As for Firefox, you could try Nautilus or Nautical until gnome-stock2 is updated.

This is great stuff Omar.

I love the default Gnome artwork by Jimmac. Simple and clean stuff. It looks great on Tb too. I just wish there was a Simple clean complete theme for Fx, all the different variants are either incompatible with recent nighties or don't use quite the same icons.

Nautical ( http://www.deviantart.com/view/4462239/ ) looks nice on my Fx. Downloader is not skinned through.

updates to my FFox versions should probably be finished later today or tomorrow at the latest. I'm just about finished, and in fact using it personally right now.

When using MagicSLR, the small "Send later" icon in the compose window is only shown correct in hoover-state!
