[RFE] Ability to change skin from title bar


(SeaMonkey :: General, enhancement, P3)

Windows 95

(Reporter: CodeMachine, Assigned: mpt)


I'm making an assumption here - that you won't be able to define extra menu
items in XUL that appear by a right click on the title bar.  I believe the Win
API allows this.

This is a request, that when everything is hooked up, there be a hardcoded
option on title-bar menu to change skin.  The reason for this is it prevent you
from being locked into a skin by a skin that doesn't allow you to change to
another skin.

It would be better to add something cross platform to do this. Not going to get 
to this for beta1, marking nsbeta1-

This would be impossible to implement on (almost all) platforms other than 
Windows. That wouldn't be important in itself (supporting platform-specific 
details is a good thing); but this is intended as a security measure, and it's 
not reasonable for a security measure to be available only on one platform.

Wontfix. Paul Chen is right; a cross-platform solution (like allowing theme 
selection from the Profile Manager, and making the Profile Manager itself 
ignore themes other than Classic) would be far better.
