Go ahead! Let me know if you have questions.

Since I'm new to this, can u show me the way around. Thanks :)
Do you already have a copy of the source code? Have you built Firefox? Have you found the file that needs to be modified?
No I don't have the source code yet...

This would be the first step:
It's done. Thank you for your patience so far :)
What will be the next thing to do?

Thank you :)

Find the file that you want to change. It's toolkit/themes/shared/aboutNetworking.css
I believe I have fixed the bug. The next step would be to create a patch right?
I've tried for instructions but cant find a file called 'patches' in my '/mozilla-central/.hg/' directory.
Have you tried using just hg diff?

hg diff > ../mypatch.diff would put mypatch.diff in the parent directory.
Please review my patch and kindly test it to see if it resolved the bug or not.
Thank you :)
Looks good but somehow I can't apply the patch:

$ hg import --no-commit
patching file toolkit/themes/shared/aboutNetworking.css
Hunk #1 FAILED at 102
1 out of 1 hunks FAILED -- saving rejects to file toolkit/themes/shared/aboutNetworking.css.rej
abort: patch failed to apply

Did you run './mach mercurial-setup'?
As you said, I ran the './mach mercurial-setup' command and it says "watchman" filesystem watching tool could not be found or isn't working. Look like I'll need to install it.
Hmm, I don't think watchman missing should matter for the patch.

Did you manually edit the patch file after generating it?

What's the content of your Mercurial configuration file (~/.hgrc)?
No I didn't edit the patch after generating. 
~/.hgrc file contains atleast the lines specified in
So this is the line in aboutNetworking.css that should be removed (without quotes):

"  border: 1;"

but this is the line your patch wants to remove:

"  border:1;	"

Since aboutNetworking.css doesn't have that line, the patch fails to apply.

I suspect you modified the line, committed your changes, and then you deleted the line. So the patch is on top of your previously committed change rather than against mozilla-central tip.
Please review the following patch I have redone and kindly check if it fixes the bug this time around.
Thank You :)

Is there anything more I have to do?
Thanks :)
Nope, we're done here. I pushed your patch to the mozilla-inbound integration repository from where it will be merged to mozilla-central soon.

Thank a lot for your guidance and patience in helping me resolve the bug :)
