From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:0.9.2+) Gecko/20010704 BuildID: 2001070404 Mozilla (with modern theme) displays an animated circle icon next to bookmarks that are being watched and have changed. This may work well for normal bookmarks, but it is inappropriate for boomkarks in the Personal Toolbar. The problem is that the animation is far too distracting when it is continously on screen. The peripheral vision is extremely sensitive to movement, so it makes it impossible to concentrate on whatever is in the main browser window. You are forced to either visit the page or turn off the notification, just to make the icon go away! This icon really needs to be replaced with something static but eyecatching.

i've never seen this icon can you attach or send me the gif? or what is the file name?
After a quick browse with Paint Shop, it appears to be res/rdf/loading.gif. Given the filename, it's possible that I've been a bit premature with the bug report. The feature has only just appeared in the nightlies, and the filename would suggest that it's not meant as the final image, or is appearing at the wrong time (or an undocumented one?).
it might also be dependent on the fact that we aren't displaying animated gifs properly in the chrome. last time i checked, they are endlessly looping even if the .gif contains a stop frame.
Marlon, do you know the number of that bug (about animated GIFs not stopping in chrome)? This bug should depend on it.
Severity: normal → trivial
Sorry i don't know of the bug number. it might have been fixed by now, i haven't tested it for a while
Reporter, can you reverify using a recent nightly?
No, this bug has not been fixed in 2001082803 on Win32. It is exactly the same as it was when I first reported it. Can someone please confirm this bug?
Confirming using Fizzilla/2001082905 using the Modern theme. Changed bookmarks would be better indicated by an icon not in perpetual motion.
Severity: trivial → minor
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
Mass reassigning my theme bugs to Shuehan.
