Do you like your daily builds with themes?

I've started to use Mozilla again after a long break and I've been using the Orbit 3+1 smallest theme. Problem is, everytime you reinstall a new build, your theme is gone. Here what I'm doing to reinstall the themes.

1.) Bookmark the installation link
Drag the "File It!" link from the page into your Personal Toolbar Folder like you would a bookmarklet .

2.) Set theme to use the smallest toolbar
Save the UserChrome.css file in your profile\chrome directory. For windows 2000 users this is something like:
C:\Documents and Settings\*USERNAME*\Application Data\Mozilla\Profiles\default\*RANDOM STUFF*\chrome

NOTE: You only have to save the UserChrome.css file once, it's not overwritten when you install/re-install a new build.

3.) Set Mozilla to use the theme
Go to Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Themes and select the theme. You'll have to restart Mozilla.


View > Apply Theme > Orbit

Next time you install a new build of Mozilla, click the "File It!" link and do step 3 to get your theme back.
