I’m retiring from Firefox theming.

It’s been a fun journey over the past 5 years creating Firefox themes. I created nearly a dozen themes, stating with iPox, and I’ve got over 5 million downloads! However, I just can’t keep up. With Firefox 4 just around the corner, my themes would probably need to be revamped from the ground up and […]

With the release of Firefox 3.6, developers that used the iPox Remix tutorials to create their theme will have to create a new install file and folder structure.

Firefox 3.6 Theme Compatibly

Good news and bad news. The bad news is that my themes are currently NOT compatiblewith Firefox 3.6. I tested it out the other day and nothing happened. No error, no theme, no luck. The good news is I was able to find out why and fix it. I had to re-do the theme structure […]

iAqua and extero Themes Need Your Help

Two of my themes that have not yet made the Firefox 3 jump are iAqua and extero. Both themes are very nice and ones that I wish I had time to update but it’s just not happening. With a baby due in weeks, I just don’t see these two Firefox themes getting any sort of attention. […]

Why I would quit theming today.

I love to create Firefox themes, make addons and lots of freebees that others often enjoy.  I do this on my free time and love to see people enjoy them.  But some days, I’m ready to throw in the towel. I’ve recently got a few comments from a visitor saying “hurry up and release the […]

iPox Remix – General Theme Answers

iPox Remix has generated a lot of interest in themes, but there are many unanswered questions out there. Here are a few that have come across my email. 1. How do I use a different image/skin for the menu bar and the bar with the address box? The main menu bar with File, Edit, View […]

Changing Fonts & Colors in Firefox Themes

Today’s question comes off the iPox Remix request line: How do I make the font on the bookmark toolbar change color when I hover over it? Since Firefox runs mainly on CSS, this is a pretty easy edit. Just go into /browser/browser.css and look for the following chunk of code: toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:hover, toolbarbutton.bookmark-item:hover:active, toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[open=”true”] { background: […]

Customize Firefox’s Scrollbar
