Run it through the new skin maker---I did with Hornakapolis' Yakoo! skin and it worked.

I know, did it already.
But there is still the old tab progress bar, some icons are missing or are wrong and the they are without png tranparency. :wink:


EDIT: missing word icons added

I switched the visual style to crystal and that solved all but the ping issue. As skinners will tell you, building a ping icon takes time and there are a lot of icons.

Argh right, to bad that only Crystal supports the new bars, but it doesn't solve the icon problems.

Not too keen on Crystal but use it because i like the progress bar in transparent black.
Is it possible to change current tab blue to the same black?
I've also changed the buttons & menus background to white but would like to darken that without going back to the insipid pale blue.
Is that poss. too?

Thanks

Doesn't look like it.

Sure, just do what you did to make it white with a diff color.

My crystal skin should be done in a day or so...

How did you change the menu background to white while keeping the Crystal visual style??? AFAIK the menu background is tied to the visual style...

Excellent, but can you please change the folder icon to the yellow one from the previous version, so that the color distinguish more from the URL icon?

You can change it with skinmaker.

Thanks.

EDIT: Can you also provide the old "secure website" lock icon?
Where did you get the "cascade all windows" and "restore" icons from? I can't find these icons in Everaldo's crystal svg theme.

I've uploaded them to the skin site. I also included alternate reload icons which scubamaster pm'd me asking for.

I fabricated those from some of the other icons in the theme.
