OMG! OMG! Heartripper! Please, could you share your perfect Windows 8 Style? If you'd like, send privately the code to try and send feedback -in case I find 1-2 glitches.
He did, it's on the previous page. (And quote just below this.)
Awesome! I've also felt firefox was a bit out of place on windows 8, mostly due to the gradient behind the tab and navigationbar. I'm hardly new to css or userstyles but I didn't know the names of all the default firefox elements to be able to write the style myself, you wouldn't happen to know where I could find some reference for this or the default them file or something? There are a few things I'd like to tweak (for example, when maximized the tabbar lines up with the left side just like the navigation bar and the firefox button but when in a normal window there is a margin on the left side).
I made some slight modifications to your style, if you or anyone else is interested I've a txt file with the css.
What I did was gave inactive tabs a background and border (just the way I prefer it) taking some inspiration from IE10, the inactive tabs are a slight grey with some transparency which means they'll take on a shade of whatever colour you're using in Windows be it grey, red, blue or something else. The hover effect for inactive tabs is also inspired by IE10 (good reference for Windows 8 style) which is a gradient. I also modified the Firefox button giving it the same standard and hover colours as the File button in explorer (not sure I'll stick with blue though, might go Firefox orange again soon
Here's a screenshot of my Firefox layout which should do well as a demonstration of my change to Hertripper's userstyle (You see active, hovered inactive and an inactive tab).
A note on my bookmarks bar, in the folders are stuff I actually regularly use and just on the bar are things I've just saved for later. Most of my actual bookmarks are in the "bookmarks menu" and usually accessed by typing their name or tags in the addressbar. The bookmarksbar will hide as soon as the mouse is no longer over the bookmarksbar, navigationbar or tabbar thanks to a userstyle. The addressfield and searchfield are combine by InstantFox. There's also a whole bunch of addons that can't be seen like adblock, flashblock, tools like html validator and tweaks like "reload tab on double-click" and hide find bar which hides the find bar after a given amount of time.
