I say this after my boss rejected my request to install Mozilla on all computers at work because he thinks the Mozilla startup window doesn't look corporate enough. If giving themes access to the startup window is not possible, can you please produce some way of overriding the startup window image. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
This entry in the Mozilla 1.0 FAQ describes how to change the splash screen: http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0/faq/appearance.html#8.3 The command line -nosplash should (I think) turn off a splash screen entirely.
bugzilla is not for technical support. INVALID if you asked on irc.mozilla.org #mozillazine you would have been given the same answer as comment 1, namely that skins can't do it but naming a bitmap 'mozilla.bmp' and sticking it next to 'mozilla.exe' before running mozilla.exe will do what you want. That said, the bitmap technique works, i now have zapotec.bmp copied as my mozilla.bmp and it is now my splash screen.

This isn't a technical support question, but rather a suggestion of giving themes access to alter the splash window (persuming it is possible).
suppose i have two profiles, one newclassic, one modern. suppose each wanted a splash screen. what splash screen would i get? here's the way mozilla works: it loads the splash screen it loads itself it loads the profilemanager something picks a profile the profile picks the user's skin the user's skin loads it's true that the profile manager itself has a skin, but that information isn't available until much later, and i've never seen a skin actually claim ownership of the profilemanager.
