    Im just messing around with customizing firefox and am looking for info on this symbol in firefox. If I could get its 'most-known' name my google searches would be more useful ;)

    I've tried 'firefox egg timer' but no luck.

    Thanks b.

    It's processing your instructions. It compares to the Apple 'beachball'.

    Why should it have a name?

    Call it Bill if you like.

    But I'm trying to find out about its code so need its name to search google. If there is a name that everyone knows it'll make things much easier.

    Found it
    The mouse pointer is called the cursor and I'm looking for the progress cursor.

    It is generally called a "busy cursor" or "wait cursor."
