    Sorry for the reply.

    A bit of about the customisation: is it expected that the color scheme is sometimes applied with a visible delay. Maybe the problem is only on my system (old laptop, slow Network connection), though.

    Mostly noticeable ONLY with the (?) help logo in the UI and maybe just when going to AV or BP modules... where some events are loaded... so the delay is more than with other parts of interface. And also, more sensed with this announced lovely feature (that allows you to report your suggestion for web page rating) for BP extensions; exclusively Buttons (while navigating through 'list'. For example, choose Report 'safe->harmful' : "harmful-backTo-list' and so on). Just like "one" second (or between one and two seconds) - thus, noticeably.. but rather quickly.

    From "deep blue" to "pumpkin carrot". Not a trouble at all, especially for beta build. But it seemed to me that with a stable solution - when customization is applied (at least, if the main BP extension can be customized on-the-fly) - this can be strange.

    Other than that, so many great features have been added, changed and improved in recent releases (and have been for quite some time now).. literally.. one fine feature after another. What's next?! own firewall? :D
