Problem using with GoogleSharing Plugin Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

With the GoogleSharing plugin, under options there is a check mark to indicate whether each proxy server is enabled or not. When using BlackFox the check marks are black and the background is black as well. This effectively renders the check marks invisible. I therefore have to change Firefox back to the default theme whenever I want to check my GoogleSharing proxy status. BlackFox correctly changes all of the text, such as host name and port to white on a black background. Only the check mark is incorrectly displayed as black on a black background.

I would greatly appreciate it if this could be corrected in the next update.

Thanks

Great Theme Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Very clean and easy to use theme for firefox.

Coloring is subtle and not overbearing.

MUCH preferred the previous version Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

I am in agreement with the previous review. I was delighted with the previous look (v 1.3.7 & earlier) of this theme, it had been my theme for several months. Wish that I had not even OK'd the update to V2.
The previous version of the toolbar buttons had a subtle "pop." The new toolbar buttons are so tiny and low (NO) contrast as to be nearly invisible, a PAIN to use.
I really do not care if V2 is supposed to be a more "modern" look, it is neither as stylish OR as functional as the previous version.
Thank you for the tip in the reply to the other user about the about:config tweak that may be needed to enable re-install of the older version. I'd already (DEFINITELY) tried to re-install the 1.3.7 version but received a not compatible with FF12 error. A specific link to the relevant page in the support forums would be most helpful before I go to monkeying with configuration fine print, but a FF12 compatible version of the theme that regains the version 1.3.7 look would be even more helpful. ;)
Thank you...
[Adding on in response to developer's reply.] Please let me underline that my unhappiness with V2 is in direct relation to how much I liked the theme in its previous form.
As the reviewer before me also noted there are already other ultra-"clean" (read: sanitized, plain...) minimalist/"modern" themes available. In its prev. form BlackFox-Blue, was quite "clean" enough, but also had a bit of style, a bit of pop. A nice balance between style and clarity if you will. Now it is so overly "clean" that it's been sanitized beyond recognition, lost all it's visual appeal.
The new buttons appear to be different icon designs, and between the icon designs, the no-contrast look, and the yes, tiny, size, I have to stare at them for a minute to remember which is which. This look has rendered the buttons UN-intuitive, UN-stylish, and darn near UN-recognizable. Instead of trying to out-minimalize the minimalists and out-modern the modernists, please consider seriously the desire of a significant portion of the audience for an ALTERNATIVE to the cleaned-beyond-comprehension minimalist-beyond-belief look. There were already themes out there to fill that niche. ;)
I once used Gradient iCool, but that seems to no longer be supported, or kept compatible. BlackFox PRE-V2 was the closest I'd found after Gradient to a clean-yet-stylish look. But that was back when the icons had a bit of color and were actually recognizable.
Believe me, I've been dismayed by some FF modifications, such as removal of the fwd/backward drop-marker and a full-time stop button, etc., and have weathered those storms with the help to add-ons that allowed me to reverse those (other!) instances of minimalism-run-amok...

Every change naturally creates diverse opinions. It also happened to Firefox itself when switching to version 4. Anyway, once in a while we feel the need to go with time and modernize. The new style is cleaner and much more compact. Contrast may raise gradually according to feedback (contrast is a very individual since every machine has different screen, graphics processor etc so every feedback will be considered. As for the "tiny" buttons, they're also compact so precious space is being saved. An option to choose bigger buttons is in the pipeline so stay tuned ...

I'll try not to make an capricious assessment.

* The new theme I find it difficult to watch, especially on web pages with light background, the buttons are small and have very little contrast. : http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g399/JedWryWizard/FireFox/nuevo-6.jpg
* The Firefox logo, orange on blue, attracts the eye to the upper left corner, even when they should be looking at the center of the screen.
* The manner in which the flaps move over the forward-back buttons gives me an unpleasant sensation of broken symmetry. (before not) (http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g399/JedWryWizard/FireFox/newold.png)

And finally, a personal assesment:

*The former aesthetic was unique, the current is similar to many others. (http://i1099.photobucket.com/albums/g399/JedWryWizard/FireFox/GoogleSmallringFXDarkBlue.jpg) You took a beautiful and unique theme, and you did plastic surgery on it, now looks like a lot of other themes (and I'm not saying it's not nice), but just not special.

Thanks for listening and responding, you will always have my support, but I liked more the previous version.

By the way, Could not you release a V2 Vintage? :)

A big hug

Thanks for your review. I see your point, it's valid mostly on BlackFox that lost some of it's uniqueness (but gained a more compact design that's also a bit more modern). LavaFox, on the other hand preserved more of it's uniqueness (since the Lava is always very unique). Maybe it's time to give it a try? By the way, you can still use version 1.3.7 - just scroll down the page to Version History. You may need to add the extensions.checkCompatibility.11.0 or higher to about:config. See details in the support forum.
I know that every change must disappoint some and attract others. Sorry for that but change must happen sometimes. It will update often as usual so the style will be effected from your feedback.

Simply Stunning. Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Recently changed from the red theme to this blue one. Looks extra amazing if you combine it with blue text using the Theme Font & Size Changer addon. Now I am looking at black and blue bliss. Easy on the eyes and looks stunning.

Black Lovers - Here's Your Theme! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I was a big BlackX fan but I had to seek another theme after support lagged. Thank you, ZigBoom for all the themes you've created but especially for the BlackFox theme. Gorgeous! Very clean and mixes well with the Toolbar Buttons add-on, although I would like to see some of the more common buttons, like Print Preview, "BlackFoxed". I've mentioned that to you before, though - it's definitely not a deal-breaker, just a tiny detail that would make the theme a little bit nicer. Keep up your most excellent work!

Thanks very much for your review Shadeclan! It's very nice to get such feedback!
Regarding the Toolbar Buttons, there's a plan to do a re-design so every button will get "BlackFoxed" automatically - it requires a full re-coding and design and the main reason it takes a long time to finish is because I'm too busy with other projects (work of course).
I got the basic design already, need to work on the code ...
Anyway, thanks! Please visit the new FB page so we could stay in touch, look for Zigboom Designs ( & remember to "Like" the page ;)

Pretty good theme. Love the colours, and the clean look. Not a huge fan of the image that appears on loading tabs, but that's not an issue.

Thanks for the feedback Baskin! did you try the about:blank script that makes the image stay? Anyway, considering activating it only via script. Please post in the support forum & I'll show you how to control it's appearance (on or off).

Sharp, impressive well working theme! Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

Looks like this is my new theme for good! Replacing the NASA nights theme I have used for years. If it will work with multi-tab rows for the Tab Mix Plus plugin it is a done deal. Even without that feature I really love this theme! Well done and looks VERY sharp!

Hi, thanks for such a fantastic theme. 1 question though, could you please make it compatibile with ReminderFox add-on? because of the dark font I can't read the days or dates. Also, the tooltip balloon for ReminderFox appears in an awful green but only when I use this theme. Cheers!

Bug reports should be posted in the support forum, but...

Thanks for the compliments. I've already skinned ReminderFox, there shouldn't be any problems, it may be a conflict with other add-ons. Anyway, it's much more efficient to post in the support forum, I get a notification about each post & then we can have a dialogue & find the reason for the bug.
