Yeah, same here (Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021029 Phoenix/0.4)

Would like to see this fixed, looks like a nice skin.

well, I thought it's useless :P
but I've uploaded a new one, with that file, of course.
Just now, I've tested it thoroughly again (gosh..)
and found out that I couldn't intall it. I need to uninstall 0.1 before installing 0.2. Hmm..

change the values in content.rdf

i.e.

from:

urn:mozilla:skin:phoenity

to (something like):

urn:mozilla:skin:phoenity_0.2

If like this.. is it that when I install it, there will be two phoenity entries in the Themes dialog of Phoenix?

probably, although changing displayName (and name of jar, i.e. phoenity-0.2.jar) as well wouldn't hurt

another problem that might arise:

phoenity.jar in <profile dir>/chrome may be set read only, another potential reason why you cannot install one over another

you already know i like your theme, so i won't say it again. ;)

however, Little Mozilla 1.2 is smaller than yours. i'm not sure if that matters or not, but on your website you mentioned that you wanted phoenity to be the smallest and most space-saving of the themes. it's something to look at anyway. that theme had too many changes for my taste, however, like the scroll bar and weird colors for the menu.

i hope you get the install problem fixed, but in the meantime i uninstalled all my phoenix stuff and installed fresh just to get your theme. lol. it would have been much easier if the browser would have let me simply "uninstall" it, but oh well.

good luck. :)

here's the link to the one i used: little mozilla 1.2


oooh yeah, before i forget - are you changing the throbber in the next release?

Is it intentional that the image rectangle have a slight background color?
I really like this theme.

Love this theme! Glad you fixed some of the bugs, I switched over to another theme because of it and now I'm back.

However, the Go button seems to be a little bit bigger than the other icons. Is that just me?

I know Little Mozilla. It has small buttons, but does it has small build size? The theme I made has 24x24 pixel and 16x16 pixel standard sized buttons. I think it's small enough. Actually, Little Mozilla's build can be smaller than mine, just to notify the author of that theme anyway..

The close button and the close button is 20x20 pixel, almost like the height of the address bar and also the tabs. Actually, the 0.1 version has even bigger "Go" button (24x24pixel), if you notice.
