What changes did you stylish userstyle make?

Edit: I use Tab Mix Plus to change the text colour on tabs, if that is any good to you for now.

Without the Userstyle it looks like this

The modified glasser script makes transparant Interface elements glass, the stylish makes all interface elements transparant.

I think you don't get it. Userstyles can also edit the Firefox User Interface, it doesn't only do websites...

Just look at the difference between my Firefox frames...

Heh, I've been messing around with this for about an hour. My question to you though; is there a way to just have the tab background transparent? That's what I've been trying to get today, just the tab background to have the glasser effect.

There is a way, but that's got to be changed in your theme. Just change your regular tab background with some transparant PNG, or use the inactive one. You can then change the text on the tabs to white/leave it black...

whats the name of the style.. maybe I can search for it and find it that way?


hmm when I go to userstyles.org I get this message up top:

[quote]This site has changed hosts. This is the old host. We're having problems with our DNS and hope to get it resolved soon. Until then, you can use the old host all you like, just don't bother posting comments or styles, because they won't make it to the new host. You'll know you're on the new host when you no longer see this ugly message :)[/quote]

Pretty sure that's why I can't see your style. How do I get it to refresh to the new host?

Disable any other style you have for FF3 Interface. It works for me.

or you don't have the default FF theme, or you don't modify the Glasser JS correctly
