I tried the Pinball 0.8.1 and iCandy junior themes, which are said to be compatible with the new theme manager: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=79513 Indeed, they show up in it. But upon clicking the "use theme" button, nothing happens. It throws an exception: Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER) [nsIXULChromeRegistry.isSkinSelected]" nsresult: "0x80004003 (NS_ERROR_INVALID_POINTER)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://mozapps/content/extensions/extensions.js :: anonymous :: line 594" data: no]
Same result with a new profile. Tested with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040602 Firefox/0.8.0+ (Steffen)
This works with the Spheregnome 0.9.1 theme, but it's probably still a Firefox bug.
Summary: can't switch themes in the new theme manager → can't switch to certain themes, exception thrown
Could somebody with a debug build work this a little bit? set a breakpoint in nsChromeRegistry::IsProviderSelected and see where this error code is coming from.

All of these themes are file not found. There's a separate bug on better network error reporting, so can someone please give me a theme I can actually download that reproduces thsi?
http://www.steffen-wilberg.de/icandyjr_fx_09.jar I can still reproduce the bug with that one.
Tried it and found that for me the "Use Theme" button does nothing. Restarting Firefox does not change this User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040608 Firefox/0.8.0+ Zip Build. Clean profile.
I had this problem with 'Le Breeze (Unofficial Release)' by Kevin Davis. In this case, em:internalName property in install.rdf is not same as chrome:name property of contents.rdf (inside jar file). This causes the exeption pointed in comment #0. When I modified em:internalName property to 'lebreeze/1.0', I can succesfully change to the LeBreeze theme. icandy Jr. linked from comment #5 misses em:internalname property. Ben says: > em:internalname > This must be the same as the chrome:name property used in your contents.rdf file, # http://www.bengoodger.com/software/mb/extensions/packaging/themes.html so I think this bug is 'INVALID'.
Confirming comment #8, the repackaged version of apollo throws no exception, and switches. Perhaps a sanity check of said propertie(s) , with a comment/error/notice about it not being compatible?
sorry, typo in my document. that should be "internalName"
I just updated my document to fix the typo.
Also logs console error message
This additional patch makes sure redundant data isn't written to the extensions ds when a theme with incorrect data is installed.
This bug was referenced in a checkin comment last night. Is it fixed?
It's fixed. Installing such a theme now displays the alert "Malformed File".
