For mozilla firefox I want to edit the classic theme.
I have located classic.jar and extracted it. What do I do now? How do I replace all the png's and css files back into classic.jar?

open the files in photoshop or something else, mod what you want and save it. zip the folder with all the images and download a .jar maker like this
drag the new jar file into the window where all your other skins are and install it This was what i did with the VOID2 theme Good luck

Er...why do that? Just set the option in folder options to see extensions, backup classic.jar, rename the .jar to .zip, open it, mess around, then rename it back. That's what I do.

I open (and keep open) the .jar archive with WinRAR and extract the contents to a folder and edit whatever tickles my fancy. Then I navigate to the original copy of the file I edited in WinRAR and drag the edited version in from the other folder to replace it. Then WinRAR will repackage it for you. Drag the repackaged .jar to the Themes window et voilà.

a jar is basically just a renamed zip ...no need for a jar maker

when i tried to rename the zip to jar, firefox would'nt let me install the theme

what packer you use?
I just did that with thunderbirds classic.jar using 7zip and no probs at all, when I was still using winrar it worked with that too so...dunno

i use winzip and sometimes WinRar

maybe thats the problem... try 7zip it's opensource and imo surpasses all the other packers

i have a working .jar maker so i dont need it, but thanks anyways

The best way is to reopen the jar file you extracted (with winrar) and browse to the location of the files you want to replace, now you can just drag the edited ones back in, just hit ok and voilà!

So drag the edited ones over the classic.jar file
