    The Apple menu is always Blue.

    You can choose a different colour for these items (among others) in the System preferences, under the Appearance section. I have no idea why the Apple menu is blue and the Spotlight icon is graphite though...

    The only reason I can think of it happening is that he changed colors and only one of the two decided to update.

    Either that or he did some skinning.

    Or his permissions have crapped out on him or his preferences are wrecked, but I like your skinning idea the most. :)

    Pretty simple to change that the same way you add color to your battery icon on portables or Bluetooth, or change the background of the clock....just edit the xxxx.menu item.

    Show contents for it, find the .tiff or whatever image file, and alter the color of it. I would recommend saving the original, but you can alter most all of that pretty easy....

    actually safari crashed and reset the color to itself


    so it was showing the default aqua or whatever its called and my finder was showing the gray color

    when i selected safari the apple/highligh/scroll bar/ ect was that neat little blue with the red yellow green buttons

    but when i selected anything besides safari the apple turned gray and so did everything else

    it crashed 3 times in a row... so i was a little messed up

    but its good now:)

    A miracle? :D

    Just kidding. I have found it a bit sluggish compared to Firefox 1.5 though...hate to say it. My iBook seems to have a tough time running more than 10 tabs whereas on Firefox it does fine.

    no that is incorrect the apple icon is not always blue, mine is black :apple: <---
    like that apple icon there and my spotlight icon is also black

    it could just be the version of the computer ie. 10.x.x .... mine is 10.6.3
