Description

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?

Comment 2

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.

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.
