Yeah, sorry, it looks ok with mine, but it's just a tinkage of the 3.0 skin. It's just for waiting the 3.7 version. Although, I'm using the "albook extended" personas Add-on skin. Sorry again, there's still something I haven't understood with 3.5!

Hi :-)
Thx for the kind comment!
I'm actually working on it, but the icons are remaining with a strange blue glow in the background and I still can't see where the problem is :-s

It's been a long way to understand what was wrong for applying the work done, but after two months, I've understood what the problem was (later is better than never)

I'm glad it pleases people. But I hope that the next Firefox (3.1) update will not poise a problem with the skin.

Yeah, true. Depending on how you went about building it it's tough to say.

I tried it with a few Stylish App tweaks, and they accept alot of them without problem. I was able to do a black redesign, some tab tweaks, tooltip transparencies, etc without running into issues. The skin didn't look as good in black, but it wasn't bad.

If there's a beta out for 3.1, you could check that out to see if there's issues right off the bat with it, but I don't know if there is a beta yet.

Normaly, it's just a part of the code to edit. It should be ok!
Otherwise, I'll find a way to get rid of it. I've made so many "Albook extended" skins with different apps that I'm starting to get used of avoiding traps on the way :-)

We'll see, my job is desperately taking too much of my "free" time, so I only have time for short skinning sessions :-)
Anyways, thanks for such a kind remark :-)

Maybe you should do something a little bit easier next, like make a cursor set with the same colors to go with all your other stuff. A gray outline with the light gray/whitish color would look a little less harsh than black on white or white on black, when used with your themes, I think.
Reply
:iconstopdreaming:
StopDreaming Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2009
That's totally right. Pure black is not fully agreeing with the theme.
For the cursors, that's a good idea :-)

Works like a charm and looks damn good, especially with the rest of the suite.
What seems to be wrong, is the closebutton on the tabs. Doesn't look exactly like in your preview. But it's possible, my setting causes this problem.
Great job. :-)

Hey, are you using the Stylish Extension?

Some tweaks with Stylish can effect the skin style of the tabs.

Glasser or AeroFX probably won't make this theme transparent, but they can cause little glitches too.

If you have Stylish active, or any add ons that affect the tabs I guess, just shut em off and try it again.

If you don't have Stylish, or Glasser on then I'm not really sure what it could be.

Yeah, I use Stylish. But I don't want to disable it, cause I like it. So I will have to live with that or switch to another FF theme. :-)
Thanks for the hint, though.

You don't need to disable Stylish altogether. You should just play with the individual styles in it, and find the particular style that isn't agreeing with the Theme.

You got it. Let me know if you get it straightened out. Alot of Stylish scripts are made for the default Firefox theme, so they can cause problems with themes.

Hi mate, and sorry for the very late answer, but work is screwing me up :-(
I'm really confused about this strange appearance of your close button 'cause it seems that it's only appearing on your computer. I've seen it tested on other systems, even with xp, and nobody encountered such a thing.
To be sincere, I'm totally clueless about what to do to correct it!

Maybe, lol, or windowblinds! I've never been able to use it without artefacts oftenly appearing on the screen, and I never understood why. There must be an indian sign over my head.
And yeah, we all can live with that lol ;-)

Yes, it's been concepted based on the VS, so it can look slightly different with other ones.
