Sorry, I can't release this until I figure out how to eliminate the hover blue and white text - or someone tells me how.

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.

m0r:
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 :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
