First Glimpse of New Skin for Mozilla!

Saturday October 23rd, 1999

A number of you may have seen newsgroup posts of a new "skin" coming to Mozilla shortly. The design team has been hard at work, and they are planning on landing the new skin early next week. We haven't heard if it will appear in the nightlies at that point, but we'll keep you posted.

Before we get to showing you the new skin, we'll warn you up front that it's not yet in a final state, and any glaring errors are probably being worked on at this very moment.

That said, we have a screenshot of the browser window, and a shot of the address book. Notice the curved ends of the splitter bars and how the address book's toolbar blends into the address list. Also of note is the search button inside the URL bar on the browser screenshot.

There's a lot to see here, and it's sorta hard to come to a conclusion from just a screenshot of in-process work, so I think I'll hold off judgement until I see a final polished version in action...

#90 Display preference bug at this forum?

I've been following this thread for the last few days.

I saw that there have been about 30 or so new posts since the last time I read. I in and set it to flat mode, as usual. It tells me that there are more than 75 posts and it is showing the most recent 10.

I wanted to see the most recent 30, so I make the appropriate selection and click display. The page reloads only now it is back in threaded view.

I try again, several times, and I get the same result. I tried last 20, 30 and All. Always goes back to threaded.

I used Netscape Communicator 4.6.1 and iCab on the Mac.

Anyone else have this problem?
