- (new) settings window accessable through 'Preferences' button on GMFs settings page *
- (new) import/export/restore settings on settings window only
User 'Threshold' noticed inline options -like used by GMF- won't be displayed correctly inside All-In-One sidebars add-ons manager.
Colorpickers for example won't open dropdown menus to select colors, settings/descriptions may be hard to read due the lack of space inside sidebars add-ons manager.
GMFs preference window allows options to be used the 'classic' way.
To the people, who reported bugs via add-ons validator:
- "Open new tab problem after update Glass My Fox 1.2.3."
- "Bug When tab move or change position"
--> problems were tab-extension (TU/TMP) related and had nothing to do with GMF! GMF only changes the GUI and doesn't modify tab functionality.
- "doesn't work with Personas"
--> GMF changes Firefox GUI like a theme would do and is not meant to be used together with a theme or a Persona! GMF is for default Firefox theme only!
- glassed page info
- glassed some AIOS areas
- updated info texts for people that wrongly install GMF on non-AeroGlass systems.
From Firefox 16 onwards Mozilla decided to use unprefixed CSS. Articles about that can be found here and here.
To insure this add-on runs correctly on future Firefox versions, support for Fx15 and older has been dropped.
- (new) four tabs options compatible with Australis 2 theme
- (new) some options to change url- and searchbars background

- (new) added tabs from v1.2 as own options
- (fix) prevent font settings from staying active when a user switches between AeroGlass and AeroBasic inside WindowsOS settings.
Tab settings have to be reset once, after upgrading to this version.

- tweaks on tab settings
- changed active tab for 'tabs on top' view to look nicer with glassed toolbars
- split main setting into several (new) glass options:
-- main window toolbars
-- tabs (list with tab variations)
-- library (list with glass variations)
-- preferences, dialogs etc. (list with glass variations)
-- download window
- added other glass settings to main settings group
- toolbar text settings are for main window only for now
- changed some labels and combined all 'text settings' into one group
- change on expert tweaks:
-- replaced "opacity fix"-option with transparent "about:blank" option
-- this setting is "off" by default
- no changes on other settings
- (new from 1.1.2pre1) three tab settings compatible with (old) Australis themes (no curved tabs!)
Note: All upgraders will have to reset their settings.
(*) There is a conflict between Windows 7/Vista and Firefox when it comes to glassify dropdown menus on first install. It is not a bug of this extension.
Often but not always some dropdown menus look corrupt after first installation. This can be 'fixed' by doing a browser restart. Because of that I decided to disable this option by default. Users have to set this option manually.
-> Firefox 'Library' is affected by this setting now too

** extensions can set own toolbar text color
Note: It is recommended to uninstall GMF, restart FF and reinstall GMF, if you experience a problem with (new) font color options after upgrading from 1.0.8/1.0.9pre1 to 1.0.9(final)
In 1.0.8 "Firefox button" and "Toolbar text" got own option groups.
To not mess around with GMF settings (on next update), both option groups won't take their "default" value on upgrade and remain in "off" position. That means FF-button will become "orange" and toolbar texts "black". Users will have to (re)set them manually to "glass" (FF-button) and "white" (toolbar text) in add-ons preferences to have gui like in v1.0.7.
New users are not affected and will have these options automatically set to default on installation.

- preferencess are now on GMFs addon page

- new option to disable "about:blank" transparency ("about:blank"s transparency only works with "Stylish" installed and enabled anyway).
This option can solve a rare problem that appears on "deviantart.com" when downloading an image. This "bug" is not GMFs fault, since it styles the "about:blank" page and some scripts on "deviantart.com" masquerade their "image-in-new-tab" function as "about:blank" page.
