Mozilla Source Code Swear Count

Henrik Gemal: "Inspired by the Linux kernel swear counts I did a quick search of the words in the Mozilla source code"

fuck in 23 files
shit in 45 files
crap in 259 files
bastard in 10 files

Some of the search results are dictionary references, and others are legit, as in the case of bitch:

#define morkCh_IsSevenBitChar(c)

OSX Firefox Pinstripe Theme For Windows

Aladinsrl has released a Pinstripe lookalike called Modified Firefox Milk Theme for Windows users. It includes authentic "milk throbbers" from Safari. Here's screenshot and you can download it here (.RAR file).

Not sure how legal it is since its ripping images straight from Safari. An Aqua theme was created for Mozilla previously; however, apparently Apple asked the creator to pull it down, because of copyrights.

Also, the instructions to install the theme are kinda complicated. You need to install various extensions like Compact Menu, Tab Extension Browser, and Tab Preference, which are provided in the rar file. Then copy files to all sorts of chrome directories to get it to look like the screenshot.

I haven't tried it, but I'm sure someone out there is eager to try it. So get it while you can.

Download Manager is Giving You the Finger

Bug 233525 - Background of Download Manager looks like one-finger-salute

"When the download manager is on screen, the background image of that window (folder with arrow pointing down) looks like distractingly like a hand with middle finger up."


It's only in the default theme, and it's been marked as WONTFIX.

Adrian Holovaty reported a dupe of the bug:

One might say the developer who quashed the suggestion raised his middle finger at us.

That irony is classic.

The Import Tool Lands

The Burning Edge: 2004-03-03 Builds is reporting that a new Import tool just landed on the Firefox trunk and should be in tomorrow's nightly build. It will import options, bookmarks, history, and passwords from Mozilla 1.x, Netscape 4.x, or Opera. The new Import feature is one of the big features for Firefox 0.9.

I tried it out using this unofficial build and it works pretty good. Importing from IE doesn't work yet and has been disabled for now. And if you try importing from Opera or Netscape 4.x and don't have them installed, it crashes. But hey, it's a nightly build, so I expected those kinds of things. And now some exciting screenshots:
