Mozilla Splash Generator for Mac OS X

Sunday July 7th, 2002

Jake Thompson writes: "Mac OS X users can now enjoy changing the splash screen of Mozilla, just like Windows users. Mallet and Bare have released a program called Mozilla Splash Generator, which modifies Mozilla's resource fork to change the splash screen. This site will probably go over the bandwidth limit, so a mirror has been created."

A fine selection of splash screens can be found at mozdev. And in case you've forgotten, you can change the splash screen on Windows by placing an image named mozilla.bmp in your Mozilla program folder. Linux users have to recompile.

Don't know what to tell you. I just tested it using my windows wallpaper which is much bigger than the default splash image and it worked fine. As johnlar mentioned, to create a bmp with mozilla you can right-click an image and set it as the windows wallpaper. Go to you windows directory and look for "Mozilla Wallpaper.bmp". Copy that to the mozilla program directory and rename to "mozilla.bmp" and it should work.
