    Wow! I like that!! Is that Beetlejuice's house? It's very mysterious and moody! Not like BJ at all now that I think about it, he will probably want to haunt it anyway!! :)

    Very nice, lynchknot!!

    Yes, as a matter of fact. Beetle and I go way back - :D

    Due to the new resources (made available by kol), release will be delayed (was going to release today) so that a second color selection will be available by choosing "small icons" from the customize dialog.

    (I know that the URL field is sitting high)

    Re: Firefox Longhorn [released]

    Released -

    Looks best with Kol's VS Longhorn slate (toolbar skinned by OS): http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/9380004/ - you may need to change the menu text to white or another color though.

    There are some bugs i'm not happy about and some changes I want to make.
    1. missing some bookmark icons
    2. url "secure" image a little off
    3. some others if you look for them... :)

    There will be a full skin version (background slate with plain URL/search)


    I'm not feeling well. I have a bad toothache and feel flu like symptoms so i'm going to rest for a while.

    I'm working on an update. I don't like how Fx has an "in your face" yellow url bar for secure pages - so this is what I have come up with (right cap is an animated gif) - lock is a little too large - will fix

    Available now - Download site: http://home.comcast.net/~lynchknot/

    Issues/solutions

    1. Page info tabs text is white on white - will fix but not exactly critical
    2. I have no idea if lower level secure page indicator works properly as I have not found a page that will display it
    3. Much of theme's text color is dependant on your OS theme - such as bookmark toolbar text - change to preference
    4. Instructions to change tab color/style: http://savanna.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=865021&highlight=#865021
    5. If you find bugs (only bugs please), please report
    6. If dislike the flashing lock for secure page, I will make available a replacement

    How often do you go to secure sites? choose another theme. This. apparently, is not for you. :D
