WALL•E Comes to a Firefox Theme

While browsing through the Mozilla Addons site yesterday I came across the official WALL•E Firefox theme!

WALL-E Firefox Theme

Unfortunately the theme is Windows only. However, with a bit of investigating, I was able to extract the jar file and install it on my Mac.

The theme is pretty good. WALL•E is a bit hard to see behind the address bar and I wish the bar was semi-transparent so that he was more visible. It’s also a bit hefty at over 3MB. Other than that, it looks pretty slick and works well. Nothing to extraordinary, but fun none the less. As it makes its way to 1.0, the theme has a lot of potential to grow into something spectacular.

To get WALL•E in Firefox 2, head over to the WALL•E Addon page, log into your Addon’s account and then download. Or you can click here to link directly to the theme file. If you’re on a Mac, you’ll want to choose the direct option.

Thanks Disney for embracing Firefox themes and I hope to see more!

Ohh and If you haven’t seen the WALL•E trailers, you should treat yourself.

    Thanks for posting the direct link to the JAR file. I downloaded it and installed it on Linux, and it looks great. Any chance you can track down a link to the newest version? I’m not sure how you figured it out. Thanks!

  2. Justin says:

    Never mind…figured it out with a little more work. Here it is if anyone is interested:

    link to jar file

    Thanks for the updated link Justin!

  4. Robert says:

    Anyone have the file that they could upload?… The Firefox add-on site keeps saying that the wall-e add-on is disabled.

    Thanks

  5. Thomas says:

    Robert – Did you log-in to a Mozilla Addon’s account. It’s probably in the sandbox so you need to register and log-in to get it.

  6. Robert says:

    i am logged in… but every time i click the link it says that its disabled…

  7. Thomas says:

    OMG, I think they got rid of it.

  8. Justin says:

    I might still have the jar file on my machine at work. I’ll check tomorrow, and if so, I’ll post it…somewhere….

  9. Randy says:

    They got rid of it, and I had to reformat. T_T

  10. Justin says:

    I still have the .jar file. If someone is willing to host it, I’ll pass it along.

  11. Thomas says:

    Send it over Justin. Twistermc/gmail/com

  12. Robert says:

    can you email it to me as well?

    wallefan1/yahoo/com

    thank you so much

  13. JayJ says:

    Send it to me I’ll host it cartooncook/gmail/com

  14. Justin says:

    Sorry…the license that comes in the pack says that redistribution isn’t permitted. I’d rather play it safe than mess with any possible legal issues, so I won’t be sending it to anyone.

    You can try this link as long as it’s live:

    The box version is corrupted? And any word as to why it was pulled? If i can get a copy of the file that’d be great. [email protected]

    Has anyone figured out a fix to this or have a link that works??

  18. Kim says:

    Just download the file here:
    http://www.box.net/shared/y5jx5vg4cs
    After it downloads, open Firefox add-ons (Tools->Add-Ons) and drag walle.jar to the themes section. It should install and be ready to use after that. 🙂

  19. Kim says:

    I’ve updated the theme to make it compatible with Firefox 3.0.1.
    You can find it here: http://www.box.net/shared/cbo7fu6czt
    Read my above post about how to install it.

  20. John says:

    Kim – I’m still getting the same error from that new file after downloading it, even though I’m running 3.0.1. Please help!

  21. Kim says:

    After it downloads, don’t double click on it. Open Firefox add-ons (Tools->Add-Ons) and drag walle.jar to the themes section. It should install and be ready to use after that.

  22. John says:

    Worked perfectly…thanks so much!!!

  23. YFG says:

    Is there any way that this will be compatible with 3.03? 🙁 (sorry to bump)

  24. Sound says:
