With the 08/09 snapshot, when I tried to enable the WebView I first
went to the WebStyle pane and selected one view.

Maybe there should be some cross-reference in the 'WebStyle' pane
to the 'Chat Windows' pane. Or a duplicated preference in the
WebStyle pane.

The same might be applied for the items that should be first enabled
in the 'Themes' pane.

    In Fire 1.5 the Webstyles pref has been merged into the "Display" tab of
    the Chat Windows pref.

    Can you elaborate on what sort of change you are suggesting in relation
    to the Themes pref?

    I mean that I was at first puzzled when I first went to the 'Smileys' pane
    and not seeing my freshly added theme because it was not activated in the
    'Theme' pane.

    What sort of change? At first I thought about a sentence that would say
    'Themes must be activated in the 'Themes' pane.

    But why not in each of the Colors, Icons, Smileys, and Sounds pane, adding
    the functionality of the theme pane, i.e. listing themes containing items
    that could be activated (colors in colors, smileys in smileys, sounds in
    sounds, icons in icons) and letting the user activate that part of the theme
    and sort themes.

    Or working the other way round and merging colors, smileys, sounds, and
    icons pane in a single 'Themes' pane. Maybe also graphically display there
    what is included in the selected theme. But then we would have the issue of
    different orders for different puposes.

    Or a mix of both ;-)
