Hello,

For those of you who are not exactly happy with the default icons with the new FireFox 3. It is possible to change these icons slightly.
remember to BACKUP ALL files modified

1. Navigate to the following C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\chrome

2. Locate classic.jar and open it with your archive manager. eg 7-zip

3. Within the archive navigate to skin\classic\browser\

4. Copy the file Toolbar.png out of the archive to the desktop. BACK UP this file to another location

5. Open this file with your graphics editing software (something better than paint)

6. Edit the icon carefully as the icons are set out specifically.

7. Once you have finished your edit simply copy the file back into the archive. You will need to close firefox in order to upload the file as FireFox uses the archive.

8. Open FireFox and the changes should be displayed.

9. If the changes don't look right simply replace the edited file in the archive with the original
Regards,

Alan.

You could change the colour or replace one of the images with something of the same size.

Alan.

Not sure how but I botched it.

I opened the archive with 7-zip edited one of the little buttons and saved it.
When I tried to copy it back to C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\chrome\classic.jar\skin\classic\browser\

It said not enough room, so I deleted the original file (yes I already backed up) toolbar.png and replaced it with my edited version.

Afterwards when I opened Mozilla it was missing lots of stuff, it looked kind of transparent.

So I put it back to normal and sit here wondering what I missed.

That sounds strange, especially the not enough room error. I have never experienced that before. I imagine a reinstall of FireFox would fix the problem, but that seems a bit extreme.
Regards,

Alan.

I am thinking I did it wrong...

The toolbar.png opens and it is one picture with several identical icons

when I modify one icon am not sure which one it uses

The icons represent the different states the icon in question has. I made the change to each icon and to the blank area in the middle. This changed the icon in question in all states.

Alan.

i got the same transparent / missing ff issue here...
firefox is almost completely transparant..
only showing a few icons, including my bookmarks...

the rest completely fades out to my desktop.....

i did the editing using photoshop....and first i just did some hue
/ saturation layers ...to desaturate the horrid colors.....
then saved it out as a flat....png.....first with interlace.....
that not working...without interlace.....

all resulting in nothing but above :thumbsup:

then i replaced the jar file with the back up....
and firefox started up prefectly again.....

so i did one last try....without hue / saturation layer adjustments......

only some super simple pixel adjustments..and only where
the png got 100% opacity.....hoping that would solve the issue...

but same olīthang:/

any tips`?? i love ff3..cept the horrible icons....this would really make me happy.....

I don't really know what to suggest. It all worked for me, its very strange. The only alternative I can suggest is https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/br...t:all?sort=name

most/all skins p*** me off...soz....
just changing the icons would be splendid....
i had a dream about it the other day and then i found this hehe....

maybe some one will fix it...atleast im not the only one with this bug here.....

and ill retry your guidance atleast one more time tho i followed it closely....

what graphics application did you use btw?

it could be a file standard issue.....

tho i saved it as a flat png / with same settings as original...
and the menu was the only changed file...cept the unrar/rar process......

I actually used MS paint. for my first attempt. For my second attempt I just changed the file association type.
