    Hi there , everything is fantastic but I don’t know about others I don’t really like the Bookmark Toolbar to be in blue texture, it would be cool if I can change it to the same background as the navigation toolbar.

    Other than that this is the top notch theme ~~!

    Edit on above post: Sorry I didn’t read the following blog which clearly says about the ipox hack. I’ll give it a try now ~~

    COOL theme !

    I am happy that you fixed since I was one of those who told you about the problem. Nice scrollbar. Love it. Keep it up!! Waiting for more design improvements.

    I’ve noticed an important bug, and a minor one.
    1) Have you already noticed that the Web Developer toolbar appears completely empty with the iPox theme ?
    2) When the mouse hovers an item in the context menu, the background becames blue, and the text white. Could you make the same thing with the feeds links in the Sage Sidebar ? In iPox 0.5, the background is blue, but the text is black, which makes it almost unreadable.
    Thanks a lot for the good work.

    The web developer toolbar works here correct with iPox

    You are right, I should have checked two times before posting. It was probably a pref file error, now the toolbar is working correctly.

    The other bug in the sage sidebar doesn’t occur when I click on a link in the sidebar (the text is white at this point), but when I click on a link in the page i’ve loaded by clicking on the sidebar’s link (the text becomes dark). don’t know if I’m clear enough…

    The reload (refresh) button is off-center when pressed. Nothing huge, but prior releases had errors with it it too (not the same one) but I think that it would be great if fixed for next release. (Scrollbars are damn sweet though)

    Awesome theme! 🙂 Is there any way I can reduce the sizing of the File, Edit etc menubar?

  10. Thomas says:

    Rakhesh, move the activity indicator someplace else. That’ll do it.

    Hello, very nice theme but I’ve just updated to version 0.51 and then some icons of the personal toolbar are bigger and show out of the toolbar, look this capture

    with the previous version, icons were automatically resized to fit the toolbar

  12. Thomas says:

    That’s cool Steph. I guess that some icons aren’t 16×16 like they are supposed to be. I’ll have to look into a way to fix it.

  13. Steph says:

    You’re right, these icons are 32×32 (nicer than a 16×16 one when you put a shortcut on your desktop)
    with iPox 0.4.x larger icons were shown as the 16×16 ones
    Thanks for your work Thomas 🙂

    Hey I love this theme! the only thing is i’m wondering if you have a hack like the toolbar hack only for turning off the modification of the scrollbars? i’m on a mac and i’m just a little partial to the built-in scrollbars of the OS. Thanks!

  15. Thomas says:

    Dave- It’s probably possible, but I’m not sure how to do it off the top of my head. Maybe ask over at Mozilla’s forums. 🙂
