[SOLVED]Cursor theme changes to default in Firefox and Thunderbird

When i use facebook, when the page loads something like photos or my profile, the cursor changes to default X11.
I use KDE Oxygen Black theme so the proper cursor theme when the page loads must be the arrow with the two bubbles rotating around, but i get the default skinny black cursor with a clock.
This happens in some java apps like netbeans.
I've done this alredy:
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/X1 … sor_Themes

I have Oxygen Black theme in KDM too.
I have tried this in Konqueror and Midori and works perfect. (The cursor flicker a little, but works)

Thanks in advance.

PD: sorry if you notice my bad english smile.

Re: [SOLVED]Cursor theme changes to default in Firefox and Thunderbird

I updated to Thunderbird 9 and it happens the same when its starting. I think is a GTK related problem. Still searching for solutions.

Installing lxappearance or gtk-qt-engines doesn't solve the problem as i saw in some forums.

Making symbolic links or installing new themes doesn't solve the problem...
Still looking.

Change cursor theme using "gnome-tweak-tool" will (most likely) fix your problem.

Re: [SOLVED]Cursor theme changes to default in Firefox and Thunderbird

Mmm that could not be a solution, if i want to use gnome-tweak-tool i rather install Gnome. I use KDE, so i think that's the problem but, i want to use KDE! xD.
It's weird because, Midori is GTK based too, but i don't have this problem.
Thanks fot your reply!

Re: [SOLVED]Cursor theme changes to default in Firefox and Thunderbird

I think it's a known problem upstream. [1][2][3]. It's a regression introduced by Thunderbird/Firefox 9.0. Hopefully it will be fixed by the next release (11). I don't believe there is a workaround atm without patching the source.

Re: [SOLVED]Cursor theme changes to default in Firefox and Thunderbird

If you need a fix before next major release, just do the following:
1) Check Arch Files out: http://projects.archlinux.org/svntogit/ … hunderbird
2) Download Patch https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/ … 6e3eca4196 ans save it to patch.patch (for example)
3) Add filename and md5sum to PKGBUILD
4) Add after "patch -Np1 -i "$srcdir/libvpx.patch"":

  cd "$srcdir/comm-release/mozilla"
  patch -Np1 -i "$srcdir/patch.patch"
  cd "$srcdir/comm-release"

5) Run makepkg -si
6) delete autoconf2.13,yasm,etc. afterwards (makedpendencies)
