Background broken @activ Tab when rounded Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First, its an great Addon :)
I have setup it months ago and all works great.
But now with FF39 Beta and Version 1.3.3b4 with rounded Tabs the Background Settings for activ Tab are broken. Its looks:
With normal (not active) Tab it works.

Edit: Yes when i disable TabMixPlus its working again ): So said, i need both Addons.

Do you have TabMixPlus or any other tab related add-ons installed? If yes, try to disable it/them and report back. Or come to support forums.

TMP (release / devbuild) currently breaks even the default tabs provided by Firefox in Fx 39+. Disable CTR, restart and look at the tabs...
I guess, if you want to use TMP, you have to stay on Fx38.x.

Outstanding Extension Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is the ONLY thing that is keeping me using Firefox. You listening Mozilla developers??
Great job giving users control over the UI.

No squared tabs Rated 5 out of 5 stars

First of all - Thank you!

Now, until yesterday all worked fine and now the tabs are somehow back to Australis interface, even though they are set to classic in the add-on preferences.
The only difference i made yesterday is that for the first time i registered and used Sync in the hope that i will get my firefox settings in another device.
I have tried all i can think of but in vain and that's why i will be thankful of any advice.
I'm using windows 8.1 pro, firefox 38.0.1 and CTP 1.3.2 .

Are you using any themes?
Have you enabled the developer theme preference?
Are you using any other tab related add-ons?

Test CTR with a new Fx profile to find, what could cause this glitch.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

If not for this CTR extension, I seriously doubt I would still be using firefox. The radical changes in firefox29 (and each subsequent version) made the browser almost unusable. If I wanted a google chrome clone, I would switch to chrome.

No surprise firefox users are declining in numbers.

Needs improvement with French language (and maybe other) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This add-on is definitely a must-have. It works close to perfection and I really love it.
But since version 1.3.2 (not sure it was before), there are many untranslated strings from English to French. It is a bit annoying particularly in the menu triggered by the menu bar button : "Quitter" is replaced by "Exit" and some help sub-menu items are in English as well.
I tried to sniff around in the files contained in the xpi, made some language corrections in the options.dtd file (fr folder), but didn't find the strings I mentioned before to be corrected in other files.
Please fix it (or help me fix it). By the way I'd be happy to help translate future versions in French if you like.

CTR gets most labels from default Firefox variables (the ones Fx uses in its own menus). Once Mozilla changes those variables CTR uses English backup labels to not break the ui.

Most of the time I'm using/testing Fx in English and other users/translators send me translation updates. The French translator is currently very busy with work and own add-ons, so not every new sting gets updated immediately. I rely on users that tell me, if something goes wrong on their locale after installing a new Fx version, so thanks for reporting this.

Next CTR beta will contain a fix.

Very nice extension, thank you!

GREAT ADDON. Pls add compatibilty with addon "Hide Caption Titlebar Plus"

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

I'm sorry, but HCTP removes browsers default titlebar. Without it CTRs appbutton can not be placed on titlebar. Only HCTPs own button is visible in that case.

I asked HCTP dev a while ago about making some of HCTPs features "optional" and compatible with add-ons like CTR and he promised to look into it.

Maybe now would be a great time to ask him again about that again?

Clear Recent History Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When i perform the "Clear Recent History" (Ctrl+Shift+Del) function,
then the background color of all "unloaded" tabs (from a previous section) changed
and they are appearing with the "default" background color!
If i then select one of these "unloaded" tabs, its content is an empty page
(as they are "unread" but without the "unread" background color) and you have to manually refresh
to get the real content appear.

Thanks for this addon!

My Reply to the 1st Reply of Aris (Developer):

Hi Aris!
You said: "In that case Fx changes 'unloaded' to 'unread' by itself"
Why then CTR not apply the background color for these tabs to the "unread" background color i have set in CTR?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (  This user has a previous review of this add-on.

This "problem" has nothing to do with CTR. Even with CTR disabled previously unloaded tabs lose its content.

CTR colorizes tabs based on tab 'properties' Firefox provides. In that case Fx changes 'unloaded' to 'unread' by itself.

I'm not sure, if this is a Firefox feature or bug, but maybe its worth to file a report on Bugzilla.

OK, you are right Firefox changes 'unloaded' to 'default' and not to 'uread' and because of that it can not use CTRs 'unread' colors. However on current Nightly builds Mozilla 'fixed' this issue by removing 'unloaded' tabs once you hit Ctrl+Shift+Del.

NEW FEATURE: With Sync, the settings used with this addon should automatically sync to another Firefox installation that I use on another computer. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

When I use Sync to get my various addons and so on from my normal computer at home to a second computer that I use at work, I do not get the settings that I use for this particular addon synched too on my second computer, only the addon installed. That would be great if you could put an option to just do that.
As a matter of fact, I saw with another addon exactly this feature. With this other addon, when I do Tools, Addons, and see the extensions tab, I press the options button for this other addon and I see the following option made available:
"Add a Sync (name of this other addon) settings".
I then have the possibility to tick this option. This way, when I use Sync, it will not only allow me to get this addon installed automatically on my second computer but it will also install, sync automatically on my second computer at work the settings that I use for this particular addon on my first computer at home.
This other addon should even have added a second way to select this particular feature ("Add a Sync (name of this other addon) settings") by adding it also to the following window when I do Tools, name of this other addon, and then a pop up window shows up with all the options available.

Many thanks to the developer for this excellent addon.

CTR 1.3.2beta2+ will offer a way to add CTR preferences to Firefox "Sync" optionally (and a way to remove them again ;-) ).

Easy to Update Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I had the previous version installed and working "just right." But if I update to the new version, will it mess up all my fine settings?

I did the easiest thing and clicked "Install" for the newest version,, and everything worked fine. It installed on top of the old version, and kept all of my old settings.

At least that's what I think. My Firefox didn't change at all, as far as I can see. At least my menu bar, toolbars, and addon bars haven't changed. All the bars and icons are where I left them.

Firefox would be unsatisfyingly generic without Classic Theme Restorer (Customize UI). Thanks to Aris (Developer) for keeping Firefox wonderful.

Add-on settings are kept between versions after updating.
(You also can go back to a previous version, if the current one does something weird for you. Don't forget to report an issue on support area in such a case.)

You can't adjust it, but if you come to support forum, post a screenshot of your current setup and tell me what you want to change, I might figure something out and provide css code.

I actually like the australis theme. I just use this addon for the additional customization that got lost with the new theme, while keeping the australis feel. Really flexible addon; I wish vanilla firefox was this customizable.

how do i make it appear when fullscreen?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

By "it" you mean what exactly?

CTRs tab appearance is visible in full screen mode and the add-on bar can be made visible too by enabling the corresponding option.

You can not make the "appbutton in titlebar" visible in full screen mode, because there is no titlebar in full screen mode.

Second only to no-script in top ten most essential add-ons. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The new nightly / firefox would be terrible without these little customizations

Square tabs on Firefox Nightly Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an essential plugin for me. So thanks a bunch for making it.

One thing I'd like to report, since a few nightly releases before the version was upped to 40, square tabs have been a little bit buggy. When switching tabs I can see the default Australis style tabs for a fraction of a second.

I am aware that is not an official Firefox release, but it has been happening for a while now, so it might get into an official Firefox release at some point and might be something to look into.

After a little investigation Aris was able to fix the issue.
Not only is the plugin great, but he also provided the best support I've ever seen.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on ( 

Thanks for reporting this, but I can not reproduce it on my system.

Maybe a slow hdd or too many add-ons are responsible for a slow down while switching tabs. Could you test a new empty Fx profile with only CTR installed? Firefox Portable would be the easiest way to do that without affecting your current setup.


The changes are now online in CTR 1.3.1 beta 5.

Отлично! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

поддерживайте совместимость с новыми версиями браузера и всё будет хорошо.
