Please do not turn off dynamic theme-switching.

It WFM, and I abuse the heck out of it. It WFM in all the 2004-08-xx builds, up
through 2004-08-27 (today's build).

Please keep it.

Thank you.

What bugs actually remain with it? I'm using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT
5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040825 Firefox/0.9.1+ and it WFM just fine.

Two things I would suggest. A) Fixing the themes that have problems the others
don't, such as ones with the 'duplicated icons' problem (for example, Firefox
Modern). B) If remaining problems cannot be fixed, either invoke a warning box
suggesting that they restart their browser (with a checkmark to turn it off),
put an option under advanced to enable it, or confirm so we an make an extension.

If you are going to turn off dynamic theme-switching, it would be nice if we
could turn it back on if we like.

Setting the extensions.dss.enabled pref to true should turn dynamic theme
switching back on, but refrain from complaining if it doesn't work properly. It
was turned off for a good reason, and will be turned back on when it works properly.
