With the new leak of Windows Longhorn out there, I had run moz in its classic
mode and, well to quote a friend: "it's sabotage! theyre trying to make moz so
ugly no one will use it"

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pir8 Longhorn
2. Install Longhorn
3. Run Mozilla in Classic Theme

Actual Results:  
Butt ugly display

Expected Results:  
Pretty mozilla

This would be marked as fixed later i bet, but just thought I put it out there.

Screenshot of Mozilla Classic on Longhorn

heres your first glance, enjoy! :)
What exactly is wrong?  Looks like mozilla is correctly picking up the current
OS skin and using that for the display, no?

Nothing, other than its butt ugly. The colours of the icons are blending in too
well to make it hard to see. And besides, have you no sense of humor?
I have a sense of humor.  Bugzilla, however, often does not.

Seriously, what is the expected behavior here?  It's the classic theme; it
should be picking up the OS widget styling; that's what it seems to be doing. 
Is it doing it incorrectly?  If it is, that's a bug, of course.

A screenshot of a "native" app would be nice here, basically.

Native apps

Here is the native apps look that you wanted with longhorn so you can do some
looking around... more to be attached!

IE vs. Mozilla

Here is a look at IE vs Mozilla classic theme, you can see that there are some
minor changes to be made. Such as white text instead of black, and separator
lines being too big. Other than that, just some cosmetic problems which I'll
post next.

Mozilla cosmetic bug

This is the bug I have noticed while playing with mozilla within longhorn (all
of 5 minutes) This is an image of the file selection screen when posting an
attachment to bugzilla. Bottom left has the screen shot of Mozillas file picker
while the top right has the screen shot of IEs file picker. The easy navigation
bar on the Mozilla file upload is missing. But I'll keep playing with it and
see what else is off.

Obviously this bug wont be looked at right away since this is only a very early
build at LongHorn, but at least its a good thing to peak at right?
To themes.  Yes, we should be picking up the font color.

This bug should probably be updated now that Windows Vista Beta 1 is out, not to
mention the fact that Mozilla has changed significantly since 1.3a (which the
reporter was using when the bug was filed).

Updating title to Vista

What to do with this bug report? 
Firefox 3 plan already includes a visual refresh to better support vista theme

Duplicate of Bug 333484?

How about SeaMonkey on final Vista Release?

Resolving as INCOMPLETE. I don't think anyone cares for Vista these days (Windows 8 is already out).
