Mozilla's special application cursors and CSS3 cursors should fit to the underlying OS cursor theme
CCing Talbot, who might be very interested in this bug. Adding the above mentioned dependencies: bug 258960 bug 163174 bug 275173 bug 275174 bug 246481 bug 230337 bug 230081 bug 169678
CCing email@example.com -- glad to see you here, as this bug is entirely based on your really valuable idea. Would you be so kind to unwontfix bug 258960, which is a separate problem? What you needed was an ability of applying cursor themes, especially via Windows settings.
CCing Mats Palmgren, who once fixed bug 163174 (that bug first introduced CSS3-needed cursors which were not system on Windows). Adding bug 90213 and bug 189719 as actual blockers. Adding CSS2/3 cursor property support (it's a metabug) -- bug 1916 -- as a tracker-blocker. May happen to be useful.

i'll unwontfix it later. and again, the default themes should all use the same cursor for context menu as normal. atm i'm going to mostly leave this bug alone. fwiw the windows mouse control panel cursor tab really doesn't seem very scalable, it basically does: EnumerateValue HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Cursors\Schemes EnumerateKey HKCU\Control Panel EnumerateValue HKCU\Control Panel\Cursors\ it's /possible/ there are other interesting siblings of Cursors\ which the control panel would honor, but i can't think of a useful way to probe it (short of filling the registry with a systematic list of letter strings 1-20 characters long, or relying on a wXP feature to do something similar but avoiding actually putting the keys into the registry).

(In reply to comment #0) > However, we have nine CSS3 cursors which are not system on Windows.

The CSS3-UI CR says “The UA may treat unsupported values as 'auto'. E.g. on platforms that do not have a concept of a 'context-menu' cursor, the UA may render 'default' or whatever is appropriate.”

Depends on: 310924
My testpage is now at: http://www.gtalbot.org/DHTMLSection/Cursors.html Newly added dependent or somewhat related bugs: bug 309537: When autoscrolling, cursor should indicate current scrolling direction bug 309538: Autoscroll indicator should show possible scrolling directions
This is also evident in Linux.
