More Disclosure Required about Abine Storing Personal Data Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It is deceptive not to clearly disclose that Abine will be capturing and storing users personal information - period. It is not enough to say "enter your information once and you will never have to enter it again" -- that is not the "whole truth". The "whole truth" is "Because Abine will capture and store your personal information on their server in order to automatically provide your personal information from behind a proxy."

TT DeepDark

Elegant Dark Theme - Finally! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Fantastic dark theme for Thunderbird - Finally! Excellent contrast between the dark grays make for an enjoyable dark theme that is easy on the eyes. However, for some implementations (or monitors) it may be a bit dark. (especially on Plasma or LED-LCD displays). Perhaps a "TT DeepDark (light) is in order with the brightness bumped up just a few shades. After years of using dark GTK themes in Linux to get the desired dark theme needed in Thunderbird, this theme makes tbird look almost as good under windows :)

Continuing A Long Line of Colorful Themes Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Picture Glowy-Blue done in Black & Silver and you've got it! This theme continues in a long line of colorful themes by the same author. All work well and are nicely done. Only drawbacks are the use of bold (or thick) fonts in the menus and a bit of excessive flourish on the dialog boxes. All said, this is a very well done enjoyable theme.

Pastebin Problem with FF 3.6.10 Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Problems with FF 3.6.10. If when you paste into the text field, the title field disappears. An error is displayed but inreachable (pastebin dialog covers error - only way to clear is ESC, ESC) I'll post at pastebin as well.

Revelation

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

This version removes the menu bar and menu theme elements so watch out you can get white text on white backgrounds and black text on black backgrounds in some cases. If you avoid this issue, this is probably one of the best themes ever done for firefox.

In The Dark

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Excellent work. Simple, clean, small but with a big amount of cool. Excellent scrollbar effects with neat silvers. Who needs bloated graphics when the right shades of gray will do just fine. Thanks.

Strike

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great Job! The theme looks great on 3.6.3 on Linux. The only thing I see is the double separators in the menus and the outlined dark folders make the menus look a bit busy, but that's just my preference.

I don't know if you have seen what they look like under Linux, so here is a screenshot: (86k)

The only other thought is the menu entries should probably have a bit of padding or margin between them and the edge of the menu (2-4px).

Don't take this as a criticism, I love your theme, these are just my thoughts on what I would do to tweak it :p

Hide Menubar

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

On Linux, I have the opposite problem. Hide menubar still will NOT hide my menubar. I have checked all about:config settings and they are the same as shown on the website and I've reinstalled the extension, but it still doesn't work :-(

This is a great extension, I hope a fix for linux happens soon. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thank you for updating the themes for 3.6. I have always liked these theme and it would have been a loss if they weren't updated. They're bright and very well done. Thanks again.

Hide Menubar

Feedback 3.6.20100218 Not Working Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Installed 3.6.20100218 in FF 3.6 and it still doesn't work, my menu bar is still there. I love this add-on. It's one of the all time best. I'll be glad when it's working again. Good luck with the FF3.6 challenges.

Oops-- It works in Thunderbird, just not Firefox

Thanks Naoto! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Naoto,

Thank you for this fantastic theme. It looks beautiful with my black-gold themes. Thank you also for keeping it up to date. Many other theme developers seem to have just given up. This theme is a bright spot on the firefox themes page.
