Classic Default

Generic Title Rated 5 out of 5 stars

@Nomaxxx As I understand the change in theme from KaiRo and Ratty (Phil Chee) The change was to provide a new clean default theme and to get away from its visually dated netscape roots. I however do not agree with this. But Then again I havn't yet managed to submit any reason for them to listen to me... Not to mention the issues with migrating to the new theme format such as the little glitches here and lack of toolkit icons... Tho those have been done well in this case... However my personal recommendation at the time would have been. Ok, new default theme... cool.. but like Mozilla Modern was ported port the netscape theme too... But It did not happen this way and official netscape classic theme will most likly never be included with seamonkey so this theme is our only alternative...

I do have one request... Kill the native toobar background. Netscape theme looks bad on windows 7 with the native toolbar background... Force it to the gray color and include an override in the throbber and ship us with a netscape throbber such as the NS6 or even NS4 throbber...


If you want to override your throbbers refer to documentation about userChrome.css just create a throbbers directory in your chrome folder inside your profile folder and use the following code as a base

#navigator-throbber {
list-style-image: url("throbbers/ns4/ns4-single.gif") !important;


#navigator-throbber[busy="true"] {
list-style-image: url("throbbers/ns4/ns4-anim.gif") !important;
opacity: 1.0 !important;


PS: Thanks for the Netscape Classic theme ateshyurdakul
