Description Joshua Jensen 2002-08-19 14:01:23 EDT
Description of Problem:

Old style theme brings back too many Netscape nightmares.
Netscape is the default search engine.
Accepts cookies from all sites.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Beta 5

Expected Results:

Use the modern theme by default
Use anything but Netscape (I suggest Google) as the default search engine.
Accept cookies from originating websites only
Comment 1 Sam Varshavchik 2002-08-19 17:22:31 EDT
I agree.  The first thing I do is reset Mozilla to the modern scheme, and tell
it to use Google.

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2002-08-19 17:25:19 EDT
Default theme matches every other GTK/Qt app, I don't think it's particularly

Google as search engine sounds fair.
Comment 3 Joshua Jensen 2002-08-19 17:41:20 EDT
And the modern theme doesn't match GTK/QT standards?  It really just boils down
to preferences, and impressions.  I would like to avoid the "Netscape"
impression, and I dare say that over 97% of everyone who cares prefers the
modern theme.
Comment 4 Christopher Blizzard 2002-08-20 10:57:34 EDT
I'll try to fix the default search engine (I thought I had, already.)  As for
the look, we're keeping classic since it's most likely to integrate better with
the desktop.
