Hi all,

I didn't really think the firebird icon that currently is in 0.6 was spectacular, so I made my own. If you really wanted to, you could use a resource editor to replace the mozilla icons within the executable with these (like I did :P). Here's a preview:

Image Image Image Image Image Image Image Image

(many of these use the alpha channel, so if you can't see 'em, it ain't my fault! update your browser [to Firebird! :D])

You can grab the whole set, including .ico files (windows xp nice ones, but with standard icons too), in this package:

firebird-icons [ TAR/BZ2 | ZIP ]
thunderbird-icons - [ TAR/BZ2 | ZIP ]

Looks like a logo for the Red Cross... 8)

Downloaded the tar file nontheless. I'll see how it works for me.

Looks like texturize.net is down. In any case, I've always used my own Firebird icon, so I know my way around. Thanks anyway. :D

I use several desktop icons for the various versions I have up. I've thought about changing the program icon too but haven't found it annoying enough to do something about it. At any rate, I prefer the pictures of a bird to a letter.

Looks a bit like the Macromedia Flash sign, but it's cool. Hey, feel like doing a blue "T" for Thunderbird (just an app icon)?

I like the bigger icons, especially the firebird ones...not too sure on about the t-bird icons though...nice work nevertheless.
