In this build 20020926, the customs themes do not seem to be switching at all.
Every time I switch to a custom theme and restart the browser it always goes
back to the default(netscape 4x style) theme. Even after reinstalling these
themes or new custom themes with this build it still doesn't work. The only
themes that will work are the Modern theme and the Netscape 4x style theme.

Reproducible: Always

Andrew, does this still happen with a new build?

Yes it was.

The only way I was able to resolve it was by completely deleting the Mozilla
folder and profile files.

Simply uninstalling Mozilla with the latest version did not work, it required a
clean install to fix the problem.

I did submit this back on September 9th, so a lot of time has passed, I have no
idea if this is still an issue or not.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126

Just installed Mozilla 1.2 and am having the same problem.  I uninstalled
Mozilla 1.1, but did not delete my profile (I need that stuff!) and now I can't
get it to switch themes, even after deleting themes and getting them again
(making sure to get themes for version 1.2).

The only way I was able to fix it was to completely wipe out the Mozilla 
folder, profile folders.

I only backed up my bookmarks.

After installing the fresh copy it worked fine.

Now as I said before I ran into this problem a fair while ago. This bug may 
have already been fixed in the newer nightly builds, I am not entirely sure.
