Do you mean the theme in FF or the theme in XP?

I know within IE I can browse majorgeeks.com and see the scroll bar has a green motif. But within FF, it doesn't have this feature.

From a quick google search, this is an IE only thing.

A quick bugzilla search came up with:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=77790

Hope this helps....

Using this method, does the toolbar colorisation work within Firefox. From the initial pic, I was thinking you had a FF issue.

What did you do, to change the scrollbar color? --- For future reference....

When you've got your themes ready, I know I'd love to use that on my PC. I think it's very nice!

Default Re: Windows themes...

You can get it here ....... You first need to run "UXTheme_Multi_Patcher__Neowin_Edition__2.0.exe" and read carfully to its instructions then put "MINE.msstyles" in your windows/resorces/themes directory along with both of the folders. The run MINE.msstyles....and load "mine.theme" in the themes tab.....youl half to load the mouse pointers manualy ( thare just the golden era pointers form win 98 :D ). Any one know of a way to edit .cur or .ani ( mouse curser ) files ?? Id like to take out the blue and make them a bit grayer to match the theme.... I think i have every thing done on it ( all but the mouse pointers )....
