Good day all,

I have tried to use Mozilla a few times in the past few years but am determined to succeed this time. That being said I am sure to be posting many questions to the forum.

First thing I was taken by the option of changing the 'theme' and thus changing the appearance of the icons on the toolbar. I went to a recommended site and found a StarTrek selection that looked very good. I could not however download it. It was listed in my download manager and it also opened my RAR program and I guess I didn't know where to extract it to. Would some one plz try to give me step by step instructions to accomplish this :wink:

Next and last for today,:banana: , Some websites don't ask to save my username/password, even my yahoo email account. How can I or is it possible to enter the info manually. When I do use the PW mngr does it automatically enter the info or ask first?

Many thanks,

Blackjack 8)

Welcome Blackjack.

It seems a number of individuals have been having some difficulty with the password-manager.
I'm afraid I can offer very little succor in this matter.
You might do a little more wandering; It's likely you'll stumble upon a solution somewhere herein.

As for themes...
They are packaged in "jar" files. Some are installable "xpi" packages.
If you have a "jar" of a particular theme that you'd like to install, you'll need the <a href="">theme installer extension</a>.

<a href="">Mozdev</a> has further information.

If a theme is distributed as a file with a xpi extensions, there are usually two options: either you click on the file and it brings up an install-dialog, then you can directly install it from the web location. Or it gets saved to the local disk, then simply use File->open on it to start the installation process.
(I think you need to have JavaScript turned on for the navigator for either to work, but I assume you did not turn it off - it is turned on by default)
