All-Glass Firefox v2!

549 posts in this topic

It's over guys, Firefox 4 is here! Thanks for all the intrest, support and downloads!

Download All-Glass Firefox 2.1.4 for Firefox 3.6+

Changelog

v2.1.4

- Some URL Bar fancy fixes

- Updated DLL

v2.1.3

- Updated for Firefox 3.6b3, still works with 3.5 of course!

- Slight problem with the Find bar still there, can't get it fixed... If anyone has a solution, let me know!

(temp workaround: just open a new tab, select it, and go back to your other one: fixes it!)

v2.1.2

- Updated for Firefox 3.5 RC 1 - no new updates for 3.5 required.

- Fixes a bug with the viewport top border moving down when hovering the All Tabs button

- Fixes ugly borders on the New Tab button

- URL Bar height updated to match with Search Box

v2.1.1

Updated and fixed for 3.5b99

There is a little bug: when mousing over the tab browser dropdown some border changes a little.

v2.1.0

Tab browser dropdown menu had an ugly white border -> fix

New GUID for Mozilla Addons

Careful!

[/size]

  • Not compatible with x64 versions of Firefox! Running the normal Ffx on x64 Windows works just fine!
  • If it doesn't work, you're probably running an incompatible addon or theme! Sorry for that!
  • Obviously only for Windows Vista / Windows 7 with Aero Glass enabled!
  • Use with 3.5+ only, looks funky in 3.0!

What's new in 2.0+:

  • Fancy shiny text effects with the new text-shadow in FF3.5
  • Easy peasy install system.
  • Lots and lots of fixes, and everything now looks even better!

Hint: this addon overwrites Glasser. No addons are required to use this mod.

If you still have the older All-Glass Firefox, be sure to disable/remove the old Stylish theme!

I highly recommend you to use the addon Compact Menu in combination with this addon (it hides the menubar and provides a small drop-down alternative). You can download it from here. You might need Nightly Tester Tools to be able to install it.

Screenshot:

In this screenshot I am using Compact Menu to hide my menu bar and replace it with the globe icon on the far right of the adress bar.

(Windows 7)

Have fun!

PS: GMail Notifier doesn't like this addon. You can use Gmail Checker; it does almost the same as Gmail Notifier without messing with this addon!

Forecastfox doesn't display text when this addon is enabled.

Hint on using Beta versions of Firefox: If you can't install some addons, install Nightly Tester Tools first. It can force addon installs without a problem!

It should work, added the compatibility info and it should install now.

It installs now, but everything is just black... Am I supposed to remove the modded overlay.js file or uninstall Glasser or something? I'm using the x64 version of Minefield... would that be the problem?

Hmm... It's best to completely uninstall Glasser and disable the old Stylish userstyle before you install the addon... If you give me a link to Minefield I'll have a look at it.

* update: tried in the latest trunk build of Minefield, works perfect!

BTW, does anyone know how I can make the installation window pop up for my addon instead of the download window?

Here's the link to the x64 project for firefox... http://wiki.mozilla-x86-64.com/Firefox:Download

I'm using the latest version Firefox-3.2a1pre.en-US.win64.installer.20090214.zip.

Thanks for taking a look at it! Aside from no flash support yet, I find the x64 version faster and just as stable :)

As for the installation window instead of the download window, I'm not much help there... :(

Had a look at it, and I think it's the API calls Glasser does, and modifying the Glasser JS is something I'm not very good at.

Hello,

There is a conflict with Gmail notifier 0.6.3.11

If the extension is enabled the bookmarks and tabbar become black :(

And text from bookmarks in folder dropdowns look ugly (greenish and pixelish)

Looking good, but there seems to be a conflict with Tab Mix Plus, the tab text properties cannot be changed, and are permanently black.

I hope Tab Mix Plus is updated some time soon, it's kinda messed up in 3.1 b3

I am having a similar issue with regard to it being black, also when I restart firefox I am being told there is an update from version 2.0 to version 1.0.16 surely this is incorrect?

Glasser v2.0

When I update (downgrade?) to 1.0.16 it looks like this ...

Wow, this really does look absolutely fantastic for me on Firefox 3.1 beta 3, using Windows 7. I absolutely love it! Excellent work Ambroos.

I have one problem though which does annoy me quite a bit :/ The selected tab is still the default and hasn't changed at all. I think it looks out of place. Have you tried playing around with editing the selected tab at all? Maybe even making it all glass but still the embossed effect would work?

About the tabs, something like this? (Active, inactive hover, inactive)
