SS] Need more visible Alternate Style Sheets GUI
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Actually the only way to select alternate Stylesheets defined using <link rel="alternate stylesheet"> is to use the "View>Use Style" Menu and Mozilla does not alert the user of such stylesheet unless you open that menu or summon the page info dialog. I think a quicker and more visible way should be implemented. For exemple displaing an icon on the lower right corner of the status bar (near the security icon) generating a popup menu would allow the user to be informed easly that alt ss are avaible and to select them. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
Confirmed RFE. IMHO, it should be up to the web developer to alert the user of the alternate stylesheet possibility. Voting for WFM or WONTFIX. Reporter: you might want to start your own project on mozdev.org.

107023 is a *tracker* bug. It doesn't address specific issues like this; it tracks them. And yes, this /is/ a valid bug. > it should be up to the web developer to alert the user of the alternate > stylesheet possibility. No, it shouldn't. The existance of alternate style sheets is irrelevant to the content of most pages and therefore doesn't belong there. That said, I doubt this will be fixed since the plan is to change focus to Firebird.

Ah damn, removed the wrong one. I could have sworn that I had my own name selected.
Reassigning obsolete bugs to their respective Seamonkey owners (i.e. nobody). If you want this fixed for Firefox, change the Product and Component accordingly and reassign back to me.
