Noia 2.0 eXtreme (v2.x)

This is a full version of a previously (lite) theme developed by Kongkeat Kuatrakull (Kasteo) and first updated by Vadim Bodrov (in the lite version). The look is compatible with the equivalent theme for Firefox. Thanks to Kasteo for his...

Noia 4

Better Rated 4 out of 5 stars

No need for me to send you images. The problem was that I had simultaneously FF3 and FF4 on the same machine. Noia2 stores it's config in userchrome.css and noi4 in a specific folder. But the css files called have the same name, so it creates conflicts. After deleting some lines in userchrome, it's now correct.Still a small background problem, in black and blue versions (but Ok in gray) for the Add-ons window and visible when the list is not too long. If this window is quite large (on wide screen for example), the graduated image is repeated twice and I think the look is not so good.
Nevertheless, as told before, nice work.

Noia 4

Some options do not work Rated 4 out of 5 stars

With last 1.2.4.1 version some options, who worked before, are now not operational. I'm on Windows XP SP3, FF4.0.1, french version.
Changing round tabs has no effects in the main window (it was Ok with previous release). In my last post, I wanted to speak about tabs in Options (or Preferences)/Advanced tabs which are not rounded.
Changing the shadow has no effects.
And some others... but not all ! Even after a FF restart.
In the error console, there are many errors. You should probably try to correct some of them (Mozilla reviewers doesn't like those errors !).
I think that obtaining a graduated gray background, as it was in Options tabs windows in FF3 is possible, but may be I'm wrong. Nevertheless, in Walnut theme for FF4, the author uses images for options backgrounds and in Noia Theme for ThunderBird It works too. OK, TB is in version 3 (ok with 3.3a) but this version shares many codes with FF4, so it's why I think it's possible.

Noia 4

Background in option windows Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Thanks for the update.
I think that the background color in option windows for the gray version is not good. In Noia2 3.76 it's a specific gray for simple windows or a graduated gray background for windows with tabs. In Noia4, it's the standard default theme background in any case for the gray version, though it's better in blue or dark versions.
Secondly, the tabs were rounded in Noia2 3.76, here they are not.
Nevertheless, good job.

problem with forward button Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I like this extension (v1.0.1) which now works also with TB3 beta. Just a small problem. You have named a button button-forward. This makes a problem with standard buttons because one of them has the same name, so in several themes, this makes TB confuses standard icons withs yours. There was not this problem with the previous version (0.9, I think).
But anyway, nice extension.
