I think this belongs to the installer engine.
Let's leave this with Install for now, but perhaps it really goes in the Themes preference panel. I'll take this bug as covering only uninstalling "profile" skins; globally installed skins will get covered by the general XPInstall uninstaller we're planning.

Summary: Theme should have an uinstaller → Theme should have an uninstaller
This is especially important since the individual themes are not clearly isolated from each other and the program in the filestructure. It would be nice to also just be able to delete a theme's subdir (e.g. \graymodern - although this is the best theme so far ;-) But that is probably another bug...
Moz 0.9 tasks
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla0.9
I think this depends on bug 59558 (I'm assuming that bug isn't Mac-only). See also bug 7884, general "uninstall" for xpinstall.
Depends on: 59558
It would be really nice to have this.
May we call this uninstaller 'Theme Manager'? like Linux X-Window (KDE, Gnome) Theme Manager.
why not simply put a button in prefs next to "Apply themename" called "Delete Selected Theme"?
Please see original comments in the bug "...in Pref > Theme maybe a button ..."
this is prolly something that needs to be right smack in the middle of themes prefs. reassigning benb

Since this got reassigned from dveditz to ben by syd, marking nsbeta1- and resetting target milestone since I don't think this will fit on Ben's plate for beta1
I notice the [xpiprd] in the status whiteboard from dveditz, which means that someone is supposed to deliver this. Dan, is this really your bug?
We thought this would be sufficient for now with a button on the Preferences dialog which calls hyatt's uninstall stuff, without actually removing the chrome .jar (because there might be multiple skins in a .jar), therefore this is just a UI thing. I bet TPringle doesn't know this was cut, and this is just about the top thing marketing wants from the release. re-nominating.
This is a must have for beta1. The loudest and most consistent feedback on themes is that we need an uninstaller. Paul, is there someone besides Ben that could implement this in the UI?
Ccing Patty. She will be involved with testing this implementation.

Sure, now I find this. Check out bug 71194, where I threw together what could be the start of the front-end work.
OK, the API is now in, is anyone now looking onto this bug, which seems only to be to put in a UI in prefs?
This is fixed now... *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 71194 ***
