I thought I'd post this as I vaguely remember someone asking for a Mozilla skin. There was one uploaded to the site, but it wasn't updated for Version 11.

I've updated mine and uploaded them here.

I uploaded the MyMoz skin, made by Gary because it was requested. I have not been able to open an "old" skin in the new skinfactory, so naturally, it wasn't updated to version 11 because of that. If any ever figures out how to update an old skin in the new factory, please let me know how...........cause all I get is error messages, a couple of them.........

Why did you have to open it in the new Skin Factory? Did you have new icons?

I guess I'm not understanding "upgrading to version 11". Would not have to open it in the new skin factory to do that?

Yes, but I guess I was asking more about the icons. You'd only have to open it to add the new icons. I just thought it was odd that you had made new icons for his skin.

Ok Dr. House, exactly what does updated for version 11 mean?

I added no new icons.............except for my own use, when I first installed the skin, I changed one in Other Images from the IE icon to the gray AVant icon.

The previous version skins should work fine in the current version. It's opening them in Skin Factory that is a problem for some reason. (For example, I can open the MyMoz you uploaded fine in Version 11.)

The only real difference between versions are the additional buttons that have been added to Avant. So, I created the Complete Skins for 10.2 and below category for anything that doesn't have the Version 11 buttons. For example, MyMoz is missing the Print Preview button because it wasn't available when MyMoz was created. I use that button so that skin looks incredibly weird with all of the dark Mozilla buttons and then one IE Print Preview button.

But, in theory (I know we had some problems with some beta releases) all .skn skins should work with Version 11, but not all of the icons will be there.

(Also, I know you know buttons were added, but I was also typing this for any others who might upload an older skin before I get it up.)

OK, thanks for enlightening me somewhat. Which buttons are used for updating to latest level of buttons for version 11?

I didn't update for 10.2, so I could be mistaken for some of these, but 11 added the Online Profile icons (connected, upload, download, & transferring), Add-on options, and the third icon in Other Images (which I can't figure out where or what it is). There might be more in the Other Images list, but I think that's it.

10.2 added Print Preview, Copy, Blocker Options, Reopen, Open Link, and Save, to the main toolbar and all of the floating toolbar icons.

Yeah what is that thing?

I think 10 added those... or 10.1 maybe.
