(for: Customising the Firefox Throbber)

Great tutorial, it works great. I wonder if there’s a way to change the throbber that shows on each tab when a page is loading.

What’s your association with SGI, if any?

Jason, I think all you need to do is search the resources bundle/archive and replace the file, or modify the CSS, like was done here. I’m somewhat unhappy with Mozilla’s and Firefox’s non-native GUI, but I guess that’s that. (especially bad on Mac OS X)

None whatsoever, sadly.

I’m going to use this thread as an archive of all the Firefox throbbers I find (feel free to post your own).

Your tutorials are great, but in the path you show to get to the chrome folder, you used forward slashes instead of back slashes. Subsequently, I was wondering if the same is true with the code examples you suggest pasting in the userCrome.css? Other than that, can you think of a reason mine won’t work? I feel like an idiot because I’ve done stuff like this a million times and this one is very simple! Anyway, thanks for all the great work and thank you in advance for your help.
