The new theme appears momentarily in the themes box but then dissappears. When I
dopwnload the file to another place, or open it in the downloads box, java says
it is corrupt, but it says the same with any of them

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on theme download icon.
2.get download theme dialog box yes/no.
3.click yes.
4.Theme appears momentarily in themes box then dissappears.

Actual Results:  
I tried to use the open file option in the downloads box or saved the file to my
Documents folder and tried to open it. I get a dialogue box that says Java
Virtual Machine "Invalid or corrupt Jarfile" and location of file.

Expected Results:  
It should have given me the chance to click on the new theme file name and apply it.

Default theme works fine. At first I tried the walnut theme as it is my favorite
and have used it in the past. We have recently had to reload all the software in
this machine. I tried several of the others and the results were the same with
each of them.
Sites that provide themes have the option of using an install script so you can
install the theme from your browser. This requires that the site has a script to
install, you have javascript enabled, and you have allow web sites to install
software checked in your options. Note: that setting also applies to installing
extensions / themes that you have saved to you system.

When a site does not provide an install script you can save the theme locally,
open the Theme Manager, and drag and drop the theme onto the theme manager to
install it. You must have allow web sites to install software checked in your
options for this to work as stated previously.
I should have mentioned in case it isn't clear that you need to verify the
settings I mentioned and try to install using drag and drop onto the theme
manager. After you do please post back the results along with a link to one of
the pages with a theme you are trying to install.

My settings are as mentioned. I tried saving the file to my Documents file and
dragging and droping it into the themes box and it worked like a charm. Thanks.
