Hi,
I just recently switched to SeaMonkey from Firefox (because FF got sooo slow on my Windows XP machine). Among a few things there is one thing that really keeps annoying me:

When I have several or many tabs open and I'm reading an article on one of them and I want to close it when I am done, I'm having a hard time to figure out which tab is active, which one I should close. Would it be possible to make the active tab more visibly "active" and visible (similar to FF) in future release?

There are things you can do with userChrome.css to customize the appearance of the browser (this is true in Firefox as well). I've never done anything with the active tab but I'm sure some people here have.

The active tab is quite visible in Windows 7 Aero and the classic theme. Could you post a screenshot of Fx and SeaMonkey in XP. I don't have Fx installed on my XP PC.

2.49.x like ESR52 is end of the line for XP support but a small css change could probably be done in a future 2.49.x

userChrome.css:

Code: Select all
/* Change color of active tab */
tab{
   -moz-appearance: none !important;
   }
tab[selected="true"] {
   background-color: rgb(0,255,0) !important;
   color: black !important;
   }


Adjust rgb(x,x,x) as desired.

Thank you for the css code for the active tab color, it worked. Now my active tab has a faded yellow background with black text:

Code: Select all
/* Change color of active tab */
tab{
   -moz-appearance: none !important;
   }
tab[selected="true"] {
   background-color: rgb(255,255,200) !important;
   color: black !important;
   }


But I have no idea why the URL links of my screenshots get into a redirected loop. I get the same error on my PC. Maybe because these jpg files are located in a browseable folder? These images still can be viewed if you just copy the links of them and paste them in a new window.
