Icons - Thunderbird 2

From MozillaZine Knowledge Base

This article lists some of the icons that you see in Thunderbird's user interface. It is based on Thunderbird 2.0. For Thunderbird 1.5 icons, see: Icons - Thunderbird 1.5

The icons that you see in Thunderbird depend on the theme that Thunderbird is using. The default theme depends on your operating system. This article shows icons in the default themes for PC (Linux and Windows) and for Macintosh.

If you are using a different theme, then the icons that you see in Thunderbird will probably look different. Also, a theme might have more icons or fewer icons. For example, a theme might use separate icons for POP3 and IMAP servers, or it might not use separate icons for secure servers.
