You mean like this?

Just cut and paste this code:

[flash=250,188]http://www.youtube.com/v/XXXxxxxXxXX.swf[/flash]

Just replace the "XXXxxxxXxXX" with the actual youtube code.

^Actually, it's a really simple colour mod from this theme by russelc.

You just have to change some green hex values to blue one's in the gtkrc ;)

Can I ask what fonts your using in for web pages in Firefox, ive spent quite a bit of time now getting my desktop to look nice with decent fonts & smoothing etc, but no matter how much I try, web pages in Firefox fonts alway look a little of, best way to describe it is like there missing little bits of the pixels used to draw the fonts.

It's Helvetica. Came with the system, not sure if it's the same font as Apple's Helvetica.

The UI font is Segoe UI, from Vista/Office2007.Using latest freetype2 (2.3.5, with the TrueType bytecode interpreter compiled in) and pango (1.17.5), font settings are slight hinting and grey scale antialiasing. No fonts.config settings in regards to Helvetica. Pango is important for kerning and all that, so if you want good font rendering, make sure you're using the newest version of that.

I'm using the Stylish extension for Firefox to override fonts in various webpages, if they default to something else. Youtube in the screenshot has no CSS overrides via Stylish, uses Helvetica by default. Should be mentioned that I purposefully don't have Verdana or Tahoma installed. Can't see these two anymore, I prefer Helvetica over them. A lot.

--edit: Checked, I have Firefox also use the FT2 autohinter, which overrides the slight hinting setting. It's in about:config, font.FreeType2.autohinted = true.

nice :) whats the hardware u are using ?

AMD X2 4200, Asus A8N-E, 2GB RAM, couple of 160gig disks, NVidia 7800GT, Intel PRO1000 PCI-e, Audigy2

Apart from the NIC rather common hardware.

Problem with other fonts I find is that they are not properly spaced and they have glitches when they are not anti-analyzed.
