@ kado897 - GIMP is only temporary until I can get Photoshop reinstalled. I've been using Photoshop since 2003. Using GIMP has me completely lost... I think I may try out Paint.NET though, just to see how much I like it.

Paint.NET is much simpler than Gimp. You can get it from here. Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing

and lots of plugins from here. Paint.NET Forum -> Plugins - Publishing ONLY!

Firefox Extension Icon for XPI Files

Just in-case you find you're lacking color in your mixture of icons

Custom made icons [1]-firefox_xpi_extension_icon_smithunwesson_sevenforums.png

For those that aren't familiar with XPI files, they are a type of compressed file that self installs when opened in Firefox. There are no other applications that use the XPI extension, as far as I know.

I'm including the registry file as a separate file download. If you need help applying the registry edit, I've included a tutorial titled "HOW TO APPLY REGISTRY EDITS FOR CUSTOM XPI FILE ICONS." It is in the zip file "XPI.REGISTRY.FILES.&.TUT..."

Also, after applying these registry edits the XPI context menu "Open" option will automatically open the file into Firefox. Using this you can also select multiple addons and open them all at the same time. The addons will all install as one instance after Firefox starts, only requiring you to click the "Install" prompt once!


Anyway, maybe someone else will get some use out of this besides me! ENJOY!

The Icon zip includes the following sizes:
ICO
(256x256,128x128,48x48,32x32,24x24,16x16)
PNG (258x258)

If you're interested in looking at a few more of my icons, you can check out my deviantART profile HERE. I'll be working on my preview images and posting them here later on.

EDIT: It just occurred to me that I may be breaking forum rules by including the TUT with my registry edit zip file...
I will remove the registry zip from this post until I get clarification from admin. My apologies

Very nice Archie! Jerry will hopefully compile the dlls with all when you're done, he's very good at it.
Wish I could see it all though.
