I find the X11 mouse pointers (especially the "a:hover" pointer) to look quite bad. It's even have bad visability since it's somewhat transparent. Would it be possible to use the same pointer (hand) in Linux, as in Windows? It would be the most generally recognizable mouse pointer, associated with a clickable link. By the way, what was the reason for changing the Windows pointer from that sharp hand (which I liked better) - to the new soft and rounded hand?
This RFE would likely ruffle feathers all over the Linux community. The cursors used on both Linux and Windows is the system cursors, I believe. If the current one isn't your personal favorite, why not change it on your own system. For instance Enightenment themes often come with themed cursors. Recommend WONTIX.
Mozilla use the system default mouse pointers. You can change the mouse pointer in the windows settings to the old one (search bugzilla and you will find a URL with that old pointer) I dunno where you can change your pointer on linux. marking WONTFIX (there a few other bugs about this in bugzilla, all marked Wontfix)
