Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 164102
Default Firefox theme unavailable
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:10 EST
Description of problem:
The default Firefox theme in Fedora Core 4 isn't the default Firefox theme at
all (even though the dialog says "Firefox (default) Gerich and Horlander" which
is kind of a lie). This approach goes against the cross-platform spirit of the
Mozilla project and is utterly annoying to users that use Firefox on multiple
platforms (because the original Firefox theme can't be enabled in this case). A
solution is to ship a separate Fedora theme that is then enabled by default in
Fedora Core 4.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tools > Themes
The information shown in the dialog leaves a false impression that the default
Firefox theme is currenlty in use (although it isn't).
The default Firefox theme should be available in unaltered form.
Rebuilding and installing firefox-1.5-0.5.0.beta2.src.rpm from Rawhide solves
the problem for me. I just hope it stays so in the final release.
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.
Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?
Appears to be solved in FC6 (firefox-18.104.22.168-1.fc6).
