Now I think it is final

I have completely overhauled Cobalt Thunderbird and believe that all the major bugs have been fixed. It should be working now without any major issues. There are still a couple of minor things that I have not been able to fix but I will keep working on it.

This theme better move up to number 1 with all the stinking time I have had to put into it! I hope it was worth it and I hope you enjoy it.

Please let me know of any problems you come across.

Ciao Rocco.
I think this not it is a bug:
the clear button in quick search is missing also in the default theme.

Hi man, I really like your theme!
But, the new version 3.0.6 grayed out most of my windows and most of frames in main window. even status bar become ugly and gray like Windows.

Please, fix this up, I liked it so much.

This is like it is looking now:

Dedalus, at least the default Linux skin has a blue X clear button in the quick search feild, if something is written in the search field itself.

Anyway it would be nice to have a clear button.

rocco said...

One other thing with 3.0.6. In the folder list the current folder is no longer marked, so that one can see in which folder you are at the moment, when you have focus on the message pane or the an email. Would be great if that could reappear, this was one of the big advantages over the default theme, apart from the better looks of cause.

Ciao Rocco.
You are right! The clear button in quick search, displayed after i have insert one or plus char, is missing also for me in Windows XP sp2.

Love the Bible blue theme for Firefox - any chance you could port that to Opera somehow?

Firefox is nice, but my real love is Opera (web browser). Thanks for putting together all this - it's fantastic!! God bless.

As of now I am going to stick with Firefox. I haven't looked into Opera themes yet and at the present time I do not use Opera. I will keep it in mind though and may look into it at some point. Keep checking in.

There is a really strange bug in the 3.0.7 Cobalt Thunderbird theme: When I use the small icons in the toolbar the "Move to previous/next unread message" buttons are reversed than when I use large icons.

I've fixed it easily by just switching between the next and previous entries (toolbar[iconsize="small"] #button-*) in the 'messenger/primaryToolbal.css' file.

Thanks for your work.

I love the Cobalt TB theme (3.0.7), but have run into one bug: In the Edit Saved Search Properties dialog, if I click on the Choose... button for "Select the folders to search", Cobalt does not display the list-- it starts to draw a scrolling list but fails to complete it. Modern Modoki does not have this problem, but some other themes from other developers also do. Keep up the good work!
