  7. Tweek says:

    Hey, i found a little bug, look at the adressbar on this screenshot—>

  8. Thomas says:

    Good catch Tweek. I actually saw that yesterday afternoon too. I’ll research it and get it fixed. πŸ™‚ Thanks or reporting it.

  9. Ghost says:

    Thanks for the release! Also having a small issue with the address bar

  10. Thomas says:

    Ghost – This is an extension issue. Try turning off that extension and/or turning off the background color.

  11. MarioGamer99 says:

    Cool. And it has “Slightly re-wokred tabs with new highlight color.” Awesome. I just downloaded it.

  12. Marty says:

    Thomas, this theme is GREAT! There is nothing else like it.

    Is this a bug?

    See the greyed box around the tab close buttons?
    Also the incomplete “Install” and “Find Updates” buttons in the sidebar?

    Thank you for your wonderful work on this theme.

  13. Thomas says:

    Marty, I’m not sure what’s up with your tabs. What extensions are you running that might edit how the tabs work? Also, the All in One sidebar is having issues wit the theme. I’ll have to look into that.

  14. Daniel says:

    Thanks for the theme! It looks even better than v 0.70! It makes firefox a pleasure to use! Good work!


  15. how says:

    Thomas, I think I know what is causing the gray boxes around those tab close buttons Marty is talking about. The All-in-One sidebar did that to my tabs, too.

  16. Thomas says:

    Gray boxes around those tab close buttons is probably due to tab mix plus. Turn off the background color in it’s settings.

  17. Marty says:

    I can’t find a setting in TMP to turn off the background color?

    Do you know where it is?


  18. Thomas says:

    Marty – Go to TMP’s website or ask in the Mozilla form. I don’t use it so I’m unsure.

  19. Arun says:

    pls let me know if its a bug.

    the ‘back’ or ‘forward’ buttons when active, seem to cause a jangling effect. the buttons seem to resize unequally.

  20. Thomas says:

    Arun – I haven’t heard that issue. Do you have any extensions that effect how your back and forward buttons work? Or anything in the toolbar?

  21. Arun says:

    as you may be able to see…. the only other extension’s toolbar buttons i have are: IE View, Media Player Connectivity, Web Developer.

    The issue is when i try to hover over the back or forward buttons, when they are active, … they seem to cause a shaky effect, which is probably due to unequal back or forward buttons which appear during the hover.

    Is there anything that I can do to avoid this? I have stylish enabled, but I do not think I have manipulated anything that relates directly to the images of the toolbar buttons.

  22. Thomas says:

    Arun – I checked on Mac and PC and there are no issues with the back and forward buttons so it leaves me to believe it’s an extension interference or something about the way you have customized your setup. Unfortunately I don’t know.

  23. Anna says:

    Also, is there a way we can strip the blue in the progress bar in the tab, because I already have it as green using TMP, but this theme puts blue over that, and it’s a bit bizarre looking.

  24. Anna says:

    did my first comment not go through? I said that I love iPox, but is there any way I can change the images that comprise of the scrollbar and arrows so that they’re not blue? (i hate the blue). If not, is there any way you could make us a graphite version of the theme? I’ve already customized iPox as much as I wanted to using Stylish.


  25. Thomas says:

    Thanks for the input Anna. I’ll have to look at TMP issues as there are a lot of them. As for a graphite version, there is not one planned. If you want all the code to go along with creating your own scrollbars, I suggest going over the Mozilla forms and seeing if anyone has it posted. It more than a few lines though.

  26. ts says:

    just got the 1.2 update. what happened to the apple throbber? can you please bring that back? i love this theme but don’t like the blue throbber at all. keep up the good work.

  27. Thomas says:

    ts, it may re-appear in future versions. Not sure yet.

  28. ts says:

    please do, thomas. i love this theme. it has an elegance to it and i held off updating to 2.0 until you made this theme available for it. but the bright blue throbbers just contrast too much with the rest of the theme to me. maybe you could offer it as a hack?

  29. Thomas says:

    pihug12, I’ll have to look into that but I doubt I’ll find a fix anytime soon. πŸ™

  30. Ankur says:

    Great theme, I’m really enjoying it.
    Out of curiosity, is there any way to change the brightness of the scroll-over highlighting on bookmarks? With the original blue background it looked really nice, but now that I’ve changed the background color on the toolbar the highlighting is barely noticeable. I have a feeling it’s an easy fix with Stylish, but I haven’t any clue how to do it.

  31. Thomas says:

    Ankur – I’m not exactly sure what you are looking for. There isn’t a blue background on anything, there are blue highlights. Plus, there is the bookmarks menu, bookmarks in the toolbar and the manage bookmarks area. Which one are you wondering about?

  32. Ankur says:

    Right, I guess I should have been more specific. I’m referring to the bookmarks toolbar. On the original theme, there was a blue bar behind this toolbar, and when you scrolled over a bookmark, it was highlighted. However, I’ve since removed the blue bar using the code you posted for Stylish. As a result, the scroll-over highlighting still occurs, but it is barely visible.

  33. Ulrika says:


    I’m using SeaMonkey but unfortunately there aren’t that many themes that work with it πŸ™

    I really, really like your iPox theme – any chance of you making it compatible with SeaMonkey…? πŸ™‚

  34. Thomas says:

    At this time, SeaMonkey is in major development and it’s interface/theme construction is different than Firefox. More complex as you have to think about way more than just a web browser. Maybe someday I’ll work on SeaMonkey, but not anytime soon.

  35. Thomas says:

    Ankur – You want this code:
    toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[open=”true”] {
    background: #fff url( !important;

  36. Ankur says:

    Ah, brilliant. Thanks a bunch.
    Now that we’ve got that… is there any way to give the highlights rounded edges? Or should I just use an image?
    Sorry to bother you with my petty grievances, by the way. I really am enjoying the theme.

  37. Ankur says:

    Hoho, wait, I’ve a better idea. Is it possible to use that same blue gradient that is used as highlights for the rest of the theme? I guess my question is, where can I find that image? I suppose I could make it myself, but where’s the fun in that?

  38. Thomas says:

    Ankur – Rounded edges are hard to do as no two bookmarks are the same length. The blue image I used was white at a 20% opacity or so. There is no actual image. But you could create one and upload it to your website and point to it from your code.

  39. Ankur says:

    Okay, things are looking very nice. Last question, I promise: how do I change the color of text when I scroll over it?

  40. Thomas says:

    Ankur – Same code as above and add color: #F61D1D;

  41. Ankur says:

    The text color isn’t changing, much to my dismay.
    Here’s the all code I have, any idea what’s up?

    @import url(”chrome://global/skin/extra/bookmarks-bar2.css”);
    toolbarbutton.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon { display: none; }
    #PersonalToolbar { background: #e5e5e5 !important; }
    .toolbarbutton-text { color: #464646; }
    toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[open=true] {
    background:url(“blahblah\blueGrad.jpg”) !important;
    color: #ffffff !important;

    Thanks for your help, by the way. Quite invaluable.

  42. Thomas says:

    .toolbarbutton-text { color: #464646; } is screwing up the code.

  43. Ankur says:

    I thought it might. So is there any way for me to make the text dark gray normally and white when I scroll over it?
