Themes

If you want to add a splash of color and some great iconography to Thunderbird, you can install some themes. Think of themes as “skin” for the Thunderbird application, allowing you to change everything from the colors and icons of Thunderbird to almost every piece of the UI, including things like the icons and the Throbber.

FAQ: What is the Throbber?

The Throbber is nothing more than the activity indicator in the upper-right portion of Thunderbird. Using the default theme, it looks like Figure 13-6.

Figure 13-6. The Throbber icon.


When you click the Throbber in Thunderbird, you are directed to the Thunderbird home page. But if you are really enterprising, you can change this to any URL by adding code to your user.js file. See Appendix E for information about how to do this.
