taskbarOverlay.css should not point to any images, especially mailnews, which 
might not even be installed.

The icons should be moved into individual component packages, e.g., navigator, 
mailnews, etc. and should place themselvesi nto the taskbar using overlays.  
They should each have little style sheets that specify their icons.

I don't really mind if navigator, composer, etc. stay in taskbarOverlay.css and 
in global, but mailnews, aim and all "pluggable" components need to move out of

Should this bug be targetted for M16 as part of the skinnability push for B2?  
Could you please set the target so we know whether to expect it?

adding to nsbeta2+ radar per pdt
Keywords: beta2
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2+]
This involves me creating/adding to dynamic stylesheets for the mailnews and AIM 
packages, and some makefile hackery. Time to complete: 1/2 day.

nav triage team:
easy to fix, important for skins and nav only install, b3nav+, unpredicatable 
behavior if you click on the icon when the app isn't installed.
Keywords: correctness
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2-] → [nsbeta2-][b3nav+]

nav triage team: [b3nav+] now = nsbeta3+
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2-][b3nav+] → [nsbeta2-][nsbeta3+]
Adding nsbeta3 keyword to bugs which already have nsbeta3 status markings so 
the queries don't get all screwed up.
Keywords: nsbeta3

Blake, do you know what happens with the code today if you do a Nav only install
and click on the Mail button in the Task Bar?  Depending on how this reacts, we
may push up or down the priority of fixing this.

Just did a navigator-only install and in 2000082208, the Mail button isn't in 
the component bar of the taskbar, nor is there an item in the Tasks menu.  The 
Address Book, however, appeared in both locations, despite not being installed -
- but that's bug 46596, so I don't know what this is still tracking.  Just for 
reference, when I tried to access the uninstalled Address Book via the 
component bar and the Tasks menu, nothing happened except the appearance of 
this error in the console:

JavaScript error:
 line 0: toAddressBook is not defined

Which is quite logical since it's not installed.

Nav triage team: Changing to nsbeta3-; Blake, can you check and see if this can 
be closed since it may no longer be tracking any real problem? Thanks.
Whiteboard: [nsbeta2-][nsbeta3+][NEED INFO] → [nsbeta2-][nsbeta3-]
OK, it's time for me to factor the AB icon. Clearing status whiteboard/keyword
cruft and nominating for nsbeta1.

Management types: the remaining work here involves me shifting the inclusion of
the AddressBook taskbar icon into a dynamic overlay included in navigator by
mail so that it does not appear if mail is not installed. Requires a small
amount of tedious work. No biggie, bad polish flaw.

Adding polish keyword, resetting target milestone, marking nsbeta1- since I
doubt Ben will get to this for beta1
Keywords: nsbeta1 → nsbeta1-, polish

Marking nsbeta1- bugs as future to get off the radar

Install every theme at themes.mozdev.org and for each theme do not allow it to 
be applied (only install). 
While this is in progress, at some point, a mouse over the component bar will 
set component icons for the onMouseOver event to other icons then the current
