#1 Switching themes on the fly

This article got me thinking (uh oh). You can't switch themes on the fly, but the added the ability to switch profiles on the fly. Theme information is stored in the profiles so I used the Switch profile command to create a new profile. I switched to it and set it's theme to modern. It told me I had to start moz over again, but instead of doing that, I switched the profiles back to my normal one... which resulted in a crash.

I loaded up moz again and it loaded in my classic themed profile. I went back into Switch profile to see if I could reproduce the crash, but instead, it worked. It switched profiles and skins. So it might be able to switch the theme, then switch to the other profile and back again... then you'll have your changes without rebooting mozilla. I don't know if it's any faster, but it's more work :)
