I just changed the references from chrome://global/content/widgets to chrome://global/content/bindings.

You should update your themes accordingly. Aheum... I apologize because that's something we should have done before.
Files affected are:
- scrollbar.css
- global.css
- globalBindings.xml
- browser.xml

Also, the page setup files have been moved from the communicator directory to the toolkit.

Hopefully, the last big change that will give you some pain is the moving of the profile stuff to the toolkit. It should occur in the 0.8 development stage. After 0.9, we will stabilize for 1.0. I'll keep you informed about the themes changes.

Sorry for the breakage, but we will soon be much lighter when we'll not ship the communicator files.

pch, I'm a little confused on this. These binding references were global/content/bindings originally in seamonkey and were changed in firebird a few months ago to global/content/widgets. Are you suggesting that a decision has been made to revert them back to global/content/bindings ???

Err this is a joke right :D ? We only just changed from bindings to widgets. What purpose is there in changing back?

Folks, I sincerely apology. That's a real blunder. We only realized recently that we had to make this U-turn in order to include the mozilla extensions...

Confirming that the changes have been incorporated in the 20031120 *nix build. Win32 should have them in its next update build as well, I suspect?

DOMI was recently made to work with FB. Do some of those changes need to be backed out?

Does this mean that some earlier (pre-widget change) themes will work again?

Highly unlikely. If the skinVersion="1.2" don't get them, the pseudo selector "::-moz-*" surely will :-)
