For a long time, I thought it was a graphic anomaly and not an icon. I'm not accustomed to
seeing icons in a menu bar.

Anyway, it doesn't look accurate. Two tree icons, two xnview icons. :(

That icon could indeed be hidden when the browser 'sub' window is maximized

I have an alternate icon that might not make you sick, but there is no way a way to upload it from my computer to post it here. Images posted in this forum must be hosted on a web site.

The colors of the icon can always be changed. I would have to email it to someone who could post it here.

I wonder why the gray background showed up. The icon I sent did not have a background. Perhaps the icon file got corrupted. Maybe I should have zipped it. Someone with Microangelo or other icon software can edit it and delete the background. Colors can also be changed if desired. Do you want me to email you the icon again, this time zipped? Let me know.

Since you said new "sick" icon, does that mean you do not like this icon either?

Yours isn't bad at all either. If I understand correctly, Egosun dislikes the whole idea of icons in toolbars =)

Registering makes sense. If it's a matter of a forgotten password only, simply select "I forgot my password" at the login page. A new e-mail containing login info will be sent to you, then. If you can't remember (or find in the memberlist) your username your in trouble. I can search the userlist using admin search, if needed.

icons in menubars are a waste of space. they do nothing, and they look different than 95% of the programs out there.

That's what I'm talking about.

And what about folders: Total Commander doesn't show these folders too. But when you turn on "Show hidden/system files" option, you can see them. Maybe they have system atrribute?
