Hey, I'm just curious...

I'm trying to set my browser up to look like Netscape 4.x... and I noticed there's a couple of really minor things missing.

The "Search" and "Security" icons.

It's not a huge issue since I can do searches using the URL bar, or set my home page to go to my favorite search engine. I could probably find some way to put the icons in for just myself, but I figured that since the theme's maintainer is still around... it wouldn't hurt to ask. It's just that it's already SO close.

Security icon is used in Preferences->Security, and also in the Page Info. There's only so much it can resemble Netscape short of being Netscape itself ;)
I don't remember what the security button on the toolbar did in Netscape, but there's other things like 'Guide' and 'What's new?/What's cool?' (merged into New&cool in 4.0) that has no modern equivalent.

It was the same thing as going to Tools > Page Info > Security Tab. That's why I have the Page Info button there from another extension.

I believe the Search button just took you to a search engine.
but there's other things like 'Guide' and 'What's new?/What's cool?' (merged into New&cool in 4.0) that has no modern equivalent.
Guide was just a series of drop-down links to pages like People, Yellow Pages, etc:

http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/pte/tut ... tscap4.htm

And as for what's cool/what's new, and that "The Internet" link?

I think that would have been something like this:

http://home.mcom.com/home/about-the-internet.html
http://home.mcom.com/home/whats-cool.html
http://home.mcom.com/home/whats-new.html

A modern equivalent of "What's new/What's cool" might be:
https://news.ycombinator.com/
Or something like that.

What extension(s) did you use to have these icons? I can create a subskin to also cover these toolbar buttons by default.

Sorry if I misunderstood the question. I can't really do much in regards with the theme aside from styling the toolbar icons as only an extension can add toolbar buttons to the browser.

Oh, I didn't know about that part, that themes couldn't add toolbar buttons. That explains why those weren't there already.

The add-on I used was this one:

caa:addon/toolbar-buttons

https://codefisher.org/toolbar_button/

It has a ton of buttons, though, and I think maybe I could try making a custom pack that just contains the missing toolbar buttons using this as an example.

Is there any way to restore Pale Moon's default, blue progress bar? I have already found how to replace the cylon by the grey progress bar in the CSS: uncommenting

Code: Select all

@import url("chrome://browser/skin/moonscape/sub/Status-4-Evar_-_Gray_progress_meter_(Always_visible)_(With_frame)_Fx.css");
I cannot seem to find something in the CSS that fully returns the original, though. How would I do this?
Browser: Netscape Navigator 4.0 Pale Moon 28.6.1
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Hardware: HP Pavilion DV6-7010 (1400 MHz, 4,6 GB)

Try including this snippet:

Code: Select all

#status4evar-progress-bar {
  -moz-appearance: progressbar !important;
}
