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

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.

107023 is a *tracker* bug. It doesn't address specific issues like this; it tracks
them. And yes, this /is/ a valid bug.

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.
