iPox Remix – Modify or Create Your Own Theme

Announcing iPox Remix. No, it’s not a new theme, it’s the iPox source for you to customize.

iPox Remix

iPox Remix is not only the files, it is going to also be a set of walkthroughs that help you better understand how to create a Firefox theme. They could be used to modify iPox as you wish, or it could be to use it as a base to create your own, all new, Firefox theme.

Judging from the HUGE success of my basic How to create a Firefox Theme post, there are a lot of folks out there that would love to create a theme. So I’m expanding upon that post to bring more in depth information and tutorials. The basic tutorial work well, but it lacks some detail and I’d like to expand upon it more.

I’m going to try and hit the main areas but it’ll take a while. If you have requests of what you’d like to learn, go ahead and let me know.

Overall, this is meant to be an easy exercise. I hope to keep things on a level that is easy to understand. And really, with the iPox Remix source, all you need to do is replace some graphics and you’ll be well on your way to creating your own version.

You can get all the details on the project and the source files necessary on the official iPox Remix page.

    I’d really like to know how to simply replace icons.
    I’m not sure how to create the icons in rows that are in the files.

    Also, I have an old theme that doesn’t display the address bar properly, it’s actually split into two pieces as well as the search bar.

    I just got iPox Remix and am eagerly waiting for the tutorials. You know what Thomas… I think Mozilla should feature them one day.

    blah blah – I’ll get the first tutorial up very soon.

    […] If you caught the iPox Remix announcement earlier this week, you may have noticed that download didn’t work. No one told me though. I did stumble across it late last night and fixed the issue. […]
