Only enhancements to the Alternate Stylesheet functionality and UI remain now, any chance we can have it back by default in Firefox? I know Blake's post is for the purpose of debating, but I figure it needs a bug and votes to make any difference now (since the post is rapidly degenerating). Please don't wontfix this unless you intend to permanently remove the AltSS functionality and/or UI. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
Requesting to block 1.0 final, changing version to 1.0 Branch, CC'ing fantasai.

Comment on attachment 157846 [details] [diff] [review] Patch to remove #ifdef SHOW_ALT_SS_UI Reassigning review and super-review flags to Dbaron and Ben, who were responsible for reviewing other related AltSS patches.
Comment on attachment 157846 [details] [diff] [review] Patch to remove #ifdef SHOW_ALT_SS_UI Clearing review request to me since this is a policy decision rather than a code decision.
...and I'm not the one in charge of the policy in question.
"Please don't wontfix this unless you intend to permanently remove the AltSS functionality and/or UI." The decision was made to pull this feature from the Firefox 1.0 branch. The functionality and/or UI will remain on the trunk, though I expect the UI to change before the next major Firefox release.
We're going to revisit this today, based on fantasai et al.'s progress on the bugs that caused altSS to be removed. /be
Reopening. Setting nomination flag for PR since we'll want to get this in before PR if we add it back.
ok, we agreed to take this for PR. dbaron will check in.
fixed, after discussion at aviary meeting and approval of brendan, ben, etc.

(In reply to comment #15) > > it's been removed again! > > It's now in View->Page Style. In particular, see bug 262065. It sounds like they decided to make this less visible until style selections can be made "sticky", which I can't blame them for: the behavior isn't intuitive as it stands, and could frustrate new users.
Bug 262065 >>Last modified: 2004-10-19 19:38 PDT (and that wasnt even the patch being checked in it was a comment later on) This bug, c#15 >>From Asaf Romano 2004-10-28 04:31 PDT [reply] ------- Final answer, yes it has been hidden from the somewhat confusing and frustrating statusbar UI, yes it has a reason, no it will not be fixed/changed for 1.0, yes it will be back in future release, no we do not know which release yet.
why not add a check box in Tools, "Options..." for changing this? e.g. "display alternate stylesheet UI in taskbar"
Now this has to be re-enabled since it was disabled by the aviary landing on the branch. It is one the todo list in the "branch landing wiki" http://wiki.mozilla.org/index.php/Firefox:Branch_Landing
