Doh... thought it would be cool if that was the reason *sniff*... you mean there'll be no mention of Phoenix anywhere? What a shame. :(

Ok, there is an updated version. New: connection, privacy, print icons, stretchable search bar (suggestion from Ehume), corrected border colors for toolbar buttons.

One more thing: the built in filepicker dialog used on Linux (?) is supposed to have new icons. Can anyone show a screenshot of it?

Arvid, you can view (most of) the filepicker dialog (even on windows) by viewing chrome://global/content/filepicker.xul

Can you verify that this behavior was not due to hot-switching themes? Restart the browser and see if you still the double boxes. I only see the box for the inner button but not the dropdown as does MoNkaholic apparently.

Definitely not the result of hot switching. This is the behavior on RH8. I've seen it on other machines too.

I must say that on first inspection I don't really like the flexible search box. By default it is next to the URL bar and therefore shrinks the URL bar considerably. This would affect first time users who have not yet learned how to rearrange the toolbars.

Perhaps with further use I would come to prefer it however. Just noting my thoughts.

I don't mind the search bar being flexible so long as it can be smaller than it currently is.

That is fixed with a smaller value of -moz-box-flex. As my search bar isn't next to the address bar and toolbar customization messes everything up I didn't try it. 100 seems fine.

100 equals to what? 100px?

-moz-box-flex

Indicates the flexibility of the Style Properties. Flexible elements grow and shrink to fit their given space. The actual value is not relevant unless there are other flexible elements within the same container. Elements with larger flex values will grow more than elements with lower flex values, at the ratio determined by the two elements.

Is there a reason why the Qute theme seems to suffer when small icons are used? The icons seem to lack the contrast of their larger counterparts, it could also be a spacing issue since the icons seem to be too far apart.

Yeah, I agree. The small icons seem a little not clear. Maybe Arvid can increase the contrast a bit?

I don't understand what you mean. The small icons are using the exact same color intensity and contrast as the large ones. I've even compared them in Photoshop.
