    I've been experimenting with Personas in Firefox. Frankly, I find them mildly amusing but I will probably drop them after the shine wears off. I have noticed one odd behavior between operating systems, however. When I apply a persona to Firefox on my Vista system, the header skin gets applied to the toolbar area and the footer skin gets applied to the status bar (both as expected).

    When I apply the same persona on my XP system, only the header skin gets applied. The status bar remains unchanged.

    I know there are a few differences between Firefox on Vista and Firefox on XP. Is this persona difference normal or am I overlooking something?
    Regards,

    I don't know what might be happening to you, Paul, but here's an example from my XP that seems to perform as advertised.

    Thanks, Al. I'll have to look into this a bit more.

    I've been having a little fun playing around with them locally. In Post 782856 you can see the University of Kentucky logo (I'm a big fan of their basketball and football teams). I don't know if I'm allowed to "distribute" that logo, so I didn't make a submission to the Personas Gallery web site.

    I've got four that I'm keeping locally and I use the addon menu to select one for display in Fx. Some (many?) of the ones in their gallery are a bit to loud or garish for my taste. But it was fun learning about this "chrome" stuff.
