I just like to use the fish but for text I would think "menu" or something like that. "c" just dont tell you anything.

My point exactly. "C" is just confusing UI.

You mean you didn't do it? There was no CSS involved. I'll post a SS later.

But it was the 20030126 that did it for me too. Maybe it was a glitch, but I liked it.

Why does it has to be so extremely small? I don't get that. Isn't it enough to make the whole menu just one menu item?

It happens no matter what theme I choose. I'm special! And it has been like that for quite a while.

I think it was around last Tuesday, when the |> was added for submenus.

you're not that special

guilty party :

.menu-right {
list-style-image: url("chrome://global/skin/menu/menu-arrow-hover.gif") !important;
}

et al

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. I didn't realize that would affect a top level item. But I guess since you coded the replacement with that class ...

I use(d)
Code: Select all
#compact-menu > .menu-right {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://compact/skin/sharc-2-8.50.png");
}

otherwise it would be much worse : ) sharcs every menu

I suppose I made a poor choice in my binding : )
