Cursor glyph for CSS3 'all-scroll' is the same as for 'move'. (spawned off from bug 163174 comment 98) Bug 163174 comment 98 suggests using the autoscroll icon/cursor now in use in Firefox. Another alternative is to use the same glyph as IE6. http://www.worldtimzone.com/mozilla/testcase/css3cursors.html
Gecko-based K-meleon 0.9b uses all same 9 all-scroll cursors as in/with MSIE 6; so maybe there is a way to avoid duplication of work here. If the all-scroll cursor we intend to implement does not use/reuse the auto-scroll image in Firefox (and installable in Mozilla as an extension), then I don't think we're making the best out of the situation. In any case, I can create all 9 all-scroll cursors in win32 .cur files without a problem, in less than an hour or so. Personally, I think the auto-scroll image in Firefox should be a real cursor, not an image.
Great work! However, your cursor is invisible when used above dark backgrounds, especially on black. And it lacks a hotspot. Use bug 275173 comment 5 and 6, or let me fix it.
Advancements made: 1) Hotspot defined in the center of the glyph 2) Overall cursor size reduced to 326 bytes instead of 2238 3) Edge pixels transformed from black to reversed background, to make the cursor visible over black-coloured webpages I am not sure about the 3rd idea -- whether it looks good or not. What were other variants? With black pixels untouched and white halo added, the glyph looks ugly on dark blue background. If all pixels are either transparent or reverse, then the whole thing is invisible on 50% gray. I've tried to reach some compromise.
> > 1) Hotspot defined in the center of the glyph > I defined it at the center+top of the glyph. I don't know what's the spec for this. I checked with MSIE 6 and empirically was able to locate the hot spot in the center of the glyph.

Removing helpwanted and qawanted keywords. If we agree on the cursor, then the only thing remaining is editing files mentioned in bug 258960#c2. As far as I'm concerned, this bug is almost/pretty much fixed. The "art" work has been done. Same thing with other CSS3 cursor bugfiles: bug 275173, bug 258960. Finally, related to this bugfile, it would be more logical if auto-scroll image in Firefox (and as an Mozilla extension) would use the all-scroll cursor instead: we would be conveniently closer to MSIE 6. Best, ideal would be to do what K-meleon 0.9b does.
Keywords: helpwanted, qawanted
Reinstalling helpwanted keyword since someone will have to implement this.
I'll do the 8 direction-cursors while using the images at http://www.gtalbot.org/DHTMLSection/Cursors.html#CSS3 This bug is somewhat related to bug 304563
