Do It Yourself Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I love foxscape. So I now "update" it by changing the install parameters in the xpi. Here is how to do it:

1. Download the xpi. Not as easy as it looks. Firefox won't let you do it. It says the version is obsolete. Solution: use another browser. I used explorer.

2. the xpi is a zipped file. Open it with an unzipper. I use 7zip. YMMV.

3. there is a file at the top level of the xpi named: "install.rdf". Open it with a text editor. Notepad will do.

4. the 5th line of install rdf reads:
<em:maxVersion>16.*</em:maxVersion>

change that line to read:
<em:maxVersion>20.*</em:maxVersion>

5. Save the file and rezip the archive.

6. To install Foxscape: open Firefox. Use the file open command Ctrl+O or the file open menu item to open the xpi file. Fire fox should take it from there.

7. Bon Chance. Bon Appetite.

Firefox update frenzy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The foxscape theme is a thing of beauty. Once Michael had a chance to update it for FF 18, I will hold off updating Firefox for a while.

This frenzy to bring out new versions isn't doing anyone any good, it just shows pretenses. Despite the race, FF market share has dropped, so what does that tell us?

We should also appreciate Michael's difficulties in developing the theme: lack of communication by Firefox, undue approval times, etc.

Excellent. I use the classic theme in Windows 7 and this vintage skin goes along very well with it.

Hi! very good ol' theme. Thanks to keep it updated.

However, starting from firefox 12, the new "about:newtab" page is available, but not correctly styled in foxscape. To be honnest, as there is no support at all, the page is simply ugly. A quick fix is to just copy from omni.jar the folder browser/newtab in your theme to keep the default theme. Please take a look at the new newTab.css file to see how to well integrate it with foxscape.

Thanks!

Netscape 1.1 was my first browser experience...somehow despite all the advances in browsers today, there is something about the simplicity of that browser that I still miss. This addon is a great way to reminisce those old days...

NICE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On Classic theme of Windows (i.e. not using MSstyles), it acts like Firefox 4's default, except with different icons.
Though Firefox CAN have a GUI layout like Netscape/Firefox3, I prefer it when tabs are above URLbar (it's more logical).

I love this so much, I even switched back to Firefox 3.6.3.

Think you can make a compatible version for Seamonkey? Because Seamonkey still (vaguely) looks like Netscape.

This is the best theme, it brings back memories of when I started running Red Hat 6.0 back in 1999. Please keep this one going, thanks!

Hey, thanks, I always missed the Netscape browser because it brings good memories of the beginning of the internet. I always loved the throbber. Thanks for making it and I hope you keep it updated.
