I've customized both, my Firefox 3's and Thunderbird 2's UI by changing their throbber-image with a turning Tux-image.

Though, while the code I've added to Firefox' userChrome.css worked just fine, Thunderbird doesn't act that way.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Edit userChrome.css by adding the following lines above the namespace-line:

toolbar[mode="text"] #navigator-throbber { list-style-image: url("cc-throbber-16.png") !important; }
toolbar[mode="text"] #navigator-throbber[busy="true"] { list-style-image: url("cc-throbber-16.gif") !important; }

toolbar[iconsize="small"] #navigator-throbber { list-style-image: url("cc-throbber-24.png") !important; }
toolbar[iconsize="small"] #navigator-throbber[busy="true"] { list-style-image: url("cc-throbber-24.gif") !important; }

toolbar[iconsize="large"] #navigator-throbber { list-style-image: url("cc-throbber-32.png") !important; }
toolbar[iconsize="large"] #navigator-throbber[busy="true"] { list-style-image: url("cc-throbber-32.gif") !important; }

2. Launch Thunderbird
3. Right-click somewhere at the toolbar and choose "Customize..."
4. Make sure, "Use Small Icons" is unchecked
5. Select an option from the drop-down menu left of that checkbox as you prefer (except "Text", because with that option selected, the customized throbber-image is shown)
6. Look at the upper-right corner of the UI
Actual Results:  
No customized throbber-image shown in "large mode", but instead the default circle.
Though, if "Use Small Icons" is checked, the customized throbber-image is shown, no matter what option is selected from the drop-down menu.

Expected Results:  
Customized throbber-image should be shown in "large mode", too.

- Default theme is used.
- Extensions used: DictionarySwitcher 1.1.3, MinimizeToTray, Wortliste von (alte und neue deutsche Rechtschreibung) 20060716 (= German dictionary)
Not a valid bug.

There is no reason to suppose that exactly the same CSS code will work in Firefox  and Thunderbird.

But why does the code then work when one checks that "Use Small Icons"?

Also, that's the typical code one finds if doing a search for it via Google - at least that happened to me..

So, to me this is definitely a bug, because AFAIK both application used the same base to start from and I can hardly image the TB's devs changed the throbber-code..

If your comparison is fx3, you should be testing tb3.
My comparison is not FF3 - I got another pc using FF2 and it works there, too..
The only difference is, we don't use the "large" attribute ;)
I guess it would be good for consistency with the ff nav-bar toolbar.

Bug 407899 introduced the defaulticons attribute, which also seems like something we should use - xref bug 417924.

Summary: Customized throbber doesn't show up in "large mode", but in any other - same code works in FF2/3 perfectly → tb toolbars do not use "large", only "small" iconsizes
Ah, I had something similar in mind since small icon- / text-mode works great with that CSS-code.. ;)

Magnus, can you explain better what needs to be done here?

The original issue seems not to exist anymore. 

The only trace of size="large" is these, which looks to be obsolete. and
