Almost finished - will be available within 24 hours
Woohoo. I'm dieing for a better theme, and that looks awesome man.
lol my housemate will love that theme!! as more myself working in that industry i am sick of the sight of the stuff
Oh nice theme byt the way
That is sweet!
Thanks guys. The url and search fields "light up" when clicked on now.
Sorry, I can't release this until I figure out how to eliminate the hover blue and white text - or someone tells me how.
Dude that is an awesome theme ... Looking really good .. I have to admit, the themes for firefox are some of the best I have seen ...
cant you even release it as a beta or something ?
I'll ignore the fact that last picture has a naughty word in it
Looks good, shame I am using these light apple-style themes at the moment...
Not used a dark theme for a while now... I am too damn cheery
lol - sorry - there is a site called "F***theinter.net" - I was checking out
I'll be making at light colored theme from the mac community's GUI mock up contest winner's theme - when/if it becomes available - should be an awesome theme.
You guys think maybe black text on the selected tab would be better?
As far as I know, the Operating System regulates the selected text color and probably the text color itself too. Unless there is a way to override it of course
Theme creating is all about overriding the OS -
Released with bugs: text highlight(url/search) need eliminate - options panel needs work
update - ok active tab contrast reduced (-10) to improve text visibility.
Ok, cool skin, BUT:
The bottom bar (where, among other things, the status of a page is being displayed) shrinks a little when the loading progress bar shows up. It unshrinks when the bar is gone.
My bookmarks toolbar is gone! It's just a blank space now (see screenshot)
And, when hovering over a menu-item that has a tick (looks like a v) before the item's name, the menu shrinks a little, much like the first bug. When you hover away (to an item without a tick), it's normal again.
If you want, I can post more screenshots.
This is the window asking the user where it should save the file. Dunno if that is a WIP, but:
The greyed out text should be made lighter (perhaps even a bigger fontsize?), so it is more clear on what it says.
The first three lines of text (filename, from, mime-type) should have a background-color/image matching the rest of the background. Maybe you could give the text a different color than the rest, so that is stands out better, as these lines give pretty important information.
I will post more when I find them, if you don't mind
UPDATE: Added mouseover (hover) to URL and search fields.
Yes, I know about all that. It's a lot of work looking for and changing everything in a theme.
I already have almost 30 hours into this theme and it's only been a few days.
Cant get it to work at all mind you I am using a non official build Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040326 Firefox/0.8.0+ (scragz)
Still the screen shots look amazing
Any chance of branching into Visual Styles as well? A carbon fiber task bar would be well funky
