I LOVE this theme, but there's one little thing that might be a deal breaker for me, it's so inconvenient. When I have multiple conversations going on, it's REALLY hard to tell when I have a new message based only on those 3 tiny periods being slightly more white than the other messages. Is there some way to make them a different color when you have a new message, or make the whole message tab flash a different color, like the default skin does?

I REALLY love this skin, but I find it almost unbearable having to click on several chat windows every time I get a message to see which one the new message is in, constantly, in multiple ongoing chats.

Thank you. In addition to the icon change you should notice the name of the user flashing. Is this not the case?

I agree that just the periods would be awfully hard to notice but both together should give you a good indication as to who you've received a message from.

Not to mention those intense days a few years back of Firefox customization. :D Before the major release of Firefox 4 and such! ;)

Ah yes, good times! Firefox is far more complicated these days, I'm afraid. =P

Great skin, been using it for a long time now

Recently updated though, and I can't seem to find the button that checked for skin updates, only the ones that look for client/driver updates. Am I missing it or did you remove it in a later version?

Thank you!

I renamed that link to "Official Website" but it still goes to the same place.
