not sure if this bug report belongs here or in Themes, but as part of the customisation of moz, the desktop icons should be changed/chanagable with theme changes. So there would be a different set of .ico files for each theme.
What if you have two profiles: one with the Classic theme enabled and one with Modern - which icons should be used then?
I don't believe this is a wise idea. Application and file icons are supposed to be unique and unchanging so the user may consistently and quickly identify them with the application. It seems there will always be a part of Mozilla outside the Theme process. Certainly, the Profile selection dialog optionally shown at startup doesn't display in the user's selected Theme. Mozilla (and Netscape 6) need a basic identity package for things like the icon set and that dialog that aren't in the realm of themes.
Correcting summary typo. Greg, I agree with you.

I agree with gKolanek. Propose WONTFIX.
Severity: normal → enhancement
OS: other → All
This properly belongs on the Themes component, and I'll let the asignee mark this WONTFIX at their discretion.
Component: Skinability → Themes
Themes and desktop icons are completely different things. Themes are built upon XUL and CSS. Changing desktop icons is OS-Native and would be solved by a third-party app such as MicroAngelo, or by going into the OS and doing it there. I don't see how a theme could possibly change desktop icons. And for the reasons mentioned by Greg Kolanek, I don't see why we would want to.
