The new loading icon has action, which is good, but it's grey and black, which
is pre-xp and not good.

Could it be a light-blue(from the icon for pages that don't have favicons)
circle with dark blue arrows(from the reload ring from the reload icon)?

Or just the old non-rocking loading icon

I ment the icon is fine. It has the exact same background as the Back/Forward icons.

Reload, Stop, Old Tab Loading Icon had a family look because they all had the
blue page icon. 

What's wrong with making the tab loading icon more vivid and blue and making it
look like Reload and Stop since they all kind of relate?
"Stop" is inactive when page is done. So is "tab loading icon".
"Reload"ing activates "tab loading icon" and "Stop"
Summary: new Tab Loading Icon is not qute → make "tab loading icon" look related to "reload" and "stop"

There's nothing wrong with that, but it's wrong in my opinion to file bug
reports for every little detail in the UI that you don't agree with. 

Art is a matter of opinion so if you have a icon that you think is better than
the current one, then reopen this bug and attach your icon and *maybe* a
developer will have time to take a look at it after all the important bugs are
fixed.

And it can't be just me because I saw a couple of posts on the forums about the
new art being ugly.

The new tab loading icon looks like the classic theme on XP
And classic is not Luna, which is what this theme it based on.

I don't know how to make animation, so I won't bother. I like the shape and the
effect, but not the colors. That's all.

>>*maybe* a developer will have time to take a look at it after all the
important bugs are fixed.

Arvid is the only artist that can reproduce XP's shapes with soft colors.

Resolving your bugs is pointless since you always reopen your own bugs (I know
no other bug reporter who does that).

I've had it with your bug reports, removing myself from cc.

that one looks interesting. A reload image with a flashing page image in the
back. Maybe just the page icon flashing back and forth without the reload image
in the middle. Or the old tab loading icon flashing.

VERIFYING obvious WONTFIX bugs.  Filter on firebirdWontFix to filter these bugs.
 I skipped a few that I'm unsure about from their summary and will manually go
through them.
