OK, now I've used it for a while, I've noticed a few things. I apologise if others ahve pointed these out, just thought I'd add my thoughts.

The colour of the text on the bookmark toolbar doesn't really fit with aero or Fx and is my one major (ok, so its not really huge) gripe.

Some of the favicons on the bookmark toolbar have a white border around them (i appreciate this isn't the fault of the the theme, but it is exacerbated and there might be ways to limit the impact, idk)

Otherwise, as i said before, I love it, really good work.

The favicons having a white border, can't do a thing about it... You can edit the favicons manually (some way, i think), but there's no way to do that...

The text colour: at the 4th # in the userstyle you can edit it. Example:

#main-window #navigator-toolbox #PersonalToolbar toolbarbutton > label
 {
	 color: red !important;
	 opacity: .90 !important;
 }

Just what I was looking for. I prefer Firefox over all other browsers, but enjoy Chrome's transparency. This allows me to have a little of both! :laugh:

grrrr what am I doing wrong?

Wow, that looks bad.

Yeah, make sure you edited the files correctly, and have all other themes off except for the default one.

It was his GMail notifier that did it. Helped him trying to fix it. (It's fixed now)

Too bad they didn't have Vista at work. I would be running that on the XP box here. Looks cool though! I have always like semi-transparent apps and windows. :)

BTW, interesting effect if you run it in XP. (Mac as well, tried it a few days ago there for kicks)

As for firefox plugins - Better Gmail2, Forecast fox (See that at bottom), IE TAB, Google Gears, and Stylish.

I can't do the Mac as I am at work, but pretty much does the same.

You need to have Windows Vista for this to work. XP won't work.

haiz....... sadly it doesn't work properly at my firefox. i'm using vista home basic by the way.

is it a must to use vista with transparency (glass) effects? :s

post-259616-1223393253_thumb.jpg

i doubt that.. :(

I have no idea about making it work in Vista Home Basic, but I highly doubt it, as I don't think it's rendered the same way...

How Can I turn on status bar?

Add this to the stylish script:

/* Fixes a problem with ugly statusbar text*/ 

.statusbarpanel-text{ color: gray !important; opacity: 1 !important; }

edit:

this is for the findbar:

.findbar-find-fast{ color: white !important; opacity: 1 !important; }
.checkbox-label-box{ color: white !important; opacity: 1 !important; }

Does anybody know how to remove the separator between the statusbar icons?

You need a Vista with glass support. It will never work on Vista Home Basic because it just extends the area for glass to the navigation and tab bar. But your system doesn't support glass at all.

Hi there!

Thanks for all the good reply's! I'm glad you're all enjoying it!

I've updated the style today with some new bits I got, it's all in the original post, and done some cleaning!

I've also rewritten the original post, and it is now a lot clearer how to do everything.

Thank you all, and keep the downloads coming!

Ambroos

(PS: if anyone knows how to remove the status bar divider lines, please let me know!)
