Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Both Aeon Colors and Aeon Clouds - are the loveliest cutest FF themes that have ever been. As for me, they are just perfect.

It's Baaack! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I had been using Aeon Clouds exclusively since January 2010 (v3.6) and quickly grew to love its calm, classy appearance. I was crushed when Firefox 29 was released and Aeon Clouds no longer displayed the tabs properly with Classic Theme Restorer installed and the "Tabs not on top" option selected. Much to my delight, the tabs have miraculously re-appeared with Aeon Clouds v7.2. Many thanks to the developer!

The only lingering deficiency: I would like to see the blue cloud pattern applied to the Add-on Bar at the bottom, but that's just nitpicking. So glad to have the basics back!

Hi. The theme interferes with the setting 'plugins.click_to_play' in FF 16.0.1. The old message is displayed on the video and clicking on it does not enable the plugin.

v6.0 not compatible with Firefox v12 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love Aeon Clouds--I've happily used it for years. Pleasant colors, easy on the eyes.

I have Firefox 12.0, which TOLD me there was an update to Aeon Clouds. So I updated from version 5.0 to version 6.0, but it is NOT COMPATIBLE with Firefox 12, so I lost the theme. Finally I realized I could just reinstall Aeon Clouds 5.0, and now I'm back to a nice theme with pretty colors, not that horrid grey default monstrosity.

Moral of the story: don't ever update a theme or add-on you love just because Firefox tells you an update is available, because it stupidly doesn't bother to check first if it's compatible.

Great advice for all of us

Sandlerf has great advice for all of us: we should check out the updates for compatibility before we apply them.

The Aeon and Scribblies themes, along with Halloween, were updated for Firefox 14 to version 6. If you have a version 5 it is only compatible with Firefox versions 5-13.

That said, Mozilla Add-ons has a Bugzilla for bugs like this. Users of any Firefox version like sandlerf should not be offered incompatible versions of their Add-ons.

Hack to make it work in 14.0.1 (use at own risk) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This has been my theme for almost a decade, but I just had a FireFox update and now it's broken. I'm sure it would still work, but due to FireFox calling every minor bug fix a new release version there is some number somewhere that needs to be changed in a config file to get it working agian, and unfortunately I don't know where that is.
If someone can post a 'how to fix' to this review page, please do, so I can get my Aeon Clouds back again.
btw, Ed, awesome job on the theme!

OK I figured out how to bring it back to life, use these instructions at your own risk.
I run on Kubuntu (KDE Ubuntu Linux) so my paths might be a bit different.
In the home folder go to .mozilla/firefox/(your profile)/extensions
There will be .xpi files with the names in Hex code (a jumble of lettes and numbers). My copy of Aeon Clouds started with FDE3F... but that may not be the case for everyone.
Open the .xpi file with Archive Manager (Ark didn't work well), or WinZip or whatever else you might have.
Open the install.rdf file with Kate (or gedit or notepad). The name of the extension will be listed in the file, confirm it's the one you want.
On the MaxVersion line it did say 5.0.1.*
I simply put a 1 infront of the 5 to make it compatible up to version 15 (next month I guess).
Save the file and update the archive.
Restart Firefox if it was open during this, select your theme, enable and restart firefox again.
TaDa! the dinosaur will now scare you when you hit the forwards button again.

Aeon Clouds works with Apple OS 10.6.7 and Firefox 4.0 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

iMac, OS 10.6.7

I installed FF 4.0 over FF 3.6.15 with Aeon Clouds as the theme. Aeon Clouds seems to be displaying absolutely normally in FF 4.0, despite all the warnings on this website. The Tools, Add-ons page says Aeon Clouds is incompatible, and the only option shown is to 'Remove' it. Don't do that unless you truly want to no longer use Aeon Clouds. If you do, the only way to get Aeon Cloud back into FF 4.0 is to re-install FF 3.6.15; add Aeon Clouds; and then upgrade to FF 4.0.

I contacted the author of this great theme, and he confirmed that the Windows version is not compatible with FF 4.0. So, Mac users apparently can continue using this theme.

Wonderful - no garish colours yet not dark either. Just the right balance for being different to the default theme without being over the top. Well done!

This is my choice theme for firefox and I have not been compelled to choose after themes, so completely satisfied am I with it.. It's a love shade of slightly speckled blue and so cheery.. I am using Firefox 3.0.19 and a recent FF update check said that this theme is not compatible with FF ver 3.6.3.. I keep holding back the upgrade to the latest version of FF as I do not want to lose this theme and a few favorite addons that are not compatible with FF versions beyond FF 3.0*, namely Tab Buttons, Show Chromeless, Snapback.. Sigh...

Aeon collection is cool!
unfortunately, I do not like the MOUSE-OVER button images of the arrow (forward/back) icons and history!
Cloud background is nice!

The Aeon collection is absolutely the best.
The Icons are easy to see and fun to look at. I love the surprise images when clicking the forward and back buttons. Also my search history drops down when I right click these buttons. It's easy on the eyes and makes me happy every time I look at it. Thank you very much.

Many thanks for the 3.6 version.
This add-on is so much easier on the eyes that you seem to navigate much quicker.

I've been using both colour versions of Scribblies for a while, and fancied a change. Turns out that the theme I picked out of many has also been designed by Ed Hume, so well done!
Personally, I'd like to see more versions of the Aeon theme with plain coloured backgrounds, rather than thin stripes.
