thanks for this, i was searching for a long time for a way of redecorating firefox without the weighty 'personas'. there had to be something that took less memory and fuss. this is it! although the window border is not done this addon is a big improvement. please add more things to recolour, perhaps the colorlicious options page!
Works as advertised. Wonderful extension. I've been seeking for a way out of the default bluish Windows 7 colors which ruined the firefox default theme, in my humble opinion. Until I found this extension I had settled for full themes such as FxChrome. But I really like the default firefox theme in windows, except for its colors. This extension makes the default theme great.
Meant to make it clear that I would use the fringe coloring with the transparency, which I hate, turned OFF.
Another question/request for future versions. Can you make it so that the "foreground text" on these things (principally on the area colored as "selected button") be able to be colored as well? I like to use deep, dark colors and that makes the black-colored text nigh unreadable. Lightening and contrasting it would be both an asthetic and a utilitarian leap forward.
This addon really is no good. I just tried it again in ff 16 - 21.0a1 with only that addon installed on win7 on standard settings and it colored next to nothing. It just doesn't do enough right now. All you can do is change the color of "3?" things. It's just not worth it as it is right now. Keep working on it. Make it the addon we hop it can be (a good one).
Part 2: How much most I explain here people? I'm not saying that it can't or doesn't do what it should. It does and it is very nice that it can do that. But as I truly see this addon is just another tabs coloring addon with a bonus feature. I'm sorry for saying that, but it is "kind of" true. It's only really coloring the toolbar if the tabs bar is on top (if I'm remembering correctly). To me having the tabs on top just seems almost sloppy and wrong in some way. As for the Firefox button up on the top left corner, I'm sorry but I just plain "hate" it. I like to see the whole mainbar. Which means (for me) the coloring that option is useless. The toolbar buttons coloring part isn't really that bad but ultimately not worth having if that is the only "useful" part of it. I really hate to bring this up yet again but, In anycolor just having the ability to change the overall background color is part of ( well for me anyways) what made it so great and useful. I hop you really can make this a better and much more useful addon.
EDIT of Original Post --- Everything is fine, now. Thanks to the author for his quick reply. 1- GUI I had been mislead by another add-on (Extension Options Menu 2.5) which has a drop-down menu for accessing add-ons options GUI when applicable. With Colorlicious 1.0 this led to http://hpics.li/21f6b58 With Colorlicious 1.1 this led to http://hpics.li/500d9f3 The "Close" button and the transparency issue where related to the fact that Colorlicious Options GUI was not to be accessed this way. Accessing Colorlicious 1.1 Options from AOManager Options leads to the correst GUI : http://hpics.li/6e5dca3 --- 2- Data I copied color data then removed Colorlicious 1.0, restarted, removed Colorlicious 1.0 left-over in about:config I installed Colorlicious 1.1, called Colorlicious options from AOManager ( http://hpics.li/6e5dca3 ) and from there pasted backuped colors : no problem --- Looks like it was my mistake. Sorry for that. I like Colorlicious, handy, that's why I was a bit annoyed. Keep on it !
----------------------- Original Post --- Version 1.1 does not modify whatever item color, and calling preset renders default Firefox colors but none of the preset.Maybe is it because version 1.0 should have been removed first? Ver. 1.1 is introduced as 'No Restart' contrarily to ver. 1.0 if I remember well. Updating from Firefox AOManager called a restart the browser ...Moreover the GUI is, I'll be frank, lousy. There was already no close button on 1.0, now moreover half of the GUI is transparent. Looks more like modern art than as an option interface.Back to 1.0
Hi. It sounds like many of the problems you are experiencing are not occuring on our end.
To clear a few things up:
After installing v1.1 and updating from v1.0, the browser will be required to restart because v1.0 is not restartless and needs to uninstall itself (which requires a restart). Future updates will not require a restart.
What do you mean by "no close button"? Where is this close button meant to be located and what is it meant to close?
The UI should not be transparent. We only have two elements in the entire UI that should have any form of transparency and both were present in v1.0. It may be useful for you to provide a screenshot so we can see your problem.
And lastly, we never tested whether presets from v1.0 would still work when used in v1.1 and as it turns out, it looks like they are incompatible. What you will need to do is remake your presets in v1.1 and we will be sure remember to keep them compatible in future updates. I'll talk with the other dev about possibly converting 1.0 presets to work for v1.1.1 when we release it, or reverting the format back to the v1.0 format (though that would mean v1.1 presets would not work).
The addon does what it says, which is good enough for me. As for Que mark review, just because the addon does not match your requirements, doesn't mean it deserves a 1 star. This is probably why your review(s) were removed in the first place.
