- (new) settings window accessable through 'Preferences' button on GMFs settings page *
- (new) import/export/restore settings on settings window only

* Info
User 'Threshold' noticed inline options -like used by GMF- won't be displayed correctly inside All-In-One sidebars add-ons manager.
Colorpickers for example won't open dropdown menus to select colors, settings/descriptions may be hard to read due the lack of space inside sidebars add-ons manager.
GMFs preference window allows options to be used the 'classic' way.

Info 2
To the people, who reported bugs via add-ons validator:
- "Open new tab problem after update Glass My Fox 1.2.3."
- "Bug When tab move or change position"
--> problems were tab-extension (TU/TMP) related and had nothing to do with GMF! GMF only changes the GUI and doesn't modify tab functionality.

- "doesn't work with Personas"
--> GMF changes Firefox GUI like a theme would do and is not meant to be used together with a theme or a Persona! GMF is for default Firefox theme only!

Version 46.5 KiB Works with Firefox 16.0 - 20.0a1

- unprefixed CSS
- glassed page info
- glassed some AIOS areas
- updated info texts for people that wrongly install GMF on non-AeroGlass systems.

From Firefox 16 onwards Mozilla decided to use unprefixed CSS. Articles about that can be found here and here.
To insure this add-on runs correctly on future Firefox versions, support for Fx15 and older has been dropped.

- (new) appbuttons 'no border/background/dropdown' setting

- (new) some options to change url- and searchbars background
- (new) option to make any tab content semi-transparent (-> expert tweaks, read info)
- (change) adjusted appbuttons 'no border/background' setting

Version 43.0 KiB Works with Firefox 10.0 - 18.0a1

- (change) reverted tabs to tabs from v1.1.x
- (new) added tabs from v1.2 as own options

Note: All upgraders will have to reset their settings.

(*) There is a conflict between Windows 7/Vista and Firefox when it comes to glassify dropdown menus on first install. It is not a bug of this extension.
Often but not always some dropdown menus look corrupt after first installation. This can be 'fixed' by doing a browser restart. Because of that I decided to disable this option by default. Users have to set this option manually.

Note: It is recommended to uninstall GMF, restart FF and reinstall GMF, if you experience a problem with (new) font color options after upgrading from 1.0.8/1.0.9pre1 to 1.0.9(final)

Version 22.0 KiB Works with Firefox 9.0 - 13.0a1

Note for upgraders:
In 1.0.8 "Firefox button" and "Toolbar text" got own option groups.
To not mess around with GMF settings (on next update), both option groups won't take their "default" value on upgrade and remain in "off" position. That means FF-button will become "orange" and toolbar texts "black". Users will have to (re)set them manually to "glass" (FF-button) and "white" (toolbar text) in add-ons preferences to have gui like in v1.0.7.
New users are not affected and will have these options automatically set to default on installation.

- new options group "Firefox button" *1
- new option: Firefox-button -> icon only *2
- new option: "Aurora" Firefox button style
- new option: "Nightly" Firefox button style
- new option: "Glass" FF-button (moved to own option) *3
- new option: Glass and "GMF tabs" v2
- new option: Glass and alternative tabs v1 *4
- new option: Glass and alternative tabs v2 *4
- new option: Glass and alternative tabs v3 *5
- fixed bug with "highlight selection in some dd-boxes" *6
- new options group "Toolbar text" *7
- optimized "GMF tabs" (v1)
- fixed minor bugs
- changes for hard readable elements (bookmark library, sidebar, password windows) *8

*1: Not compatible to Stratiforms styling options. Stratiforms FF-button settings will always overwrite this settings
*2: show icon instead of dropmarker and text string "Firefox"
*3: if you are upgrading from a previous version, you will have to (re)set the glass effect for Firefox Glass button manually.
*4: requested by "kisss256" and "Lex1888"
*5: requested by "Lex1888"
*6: dropdown boxes bug reported by "Raszlor"
*7: same settings like for dropdown menu text colors; requested by "Jörg"
*8: reported by "biggyspender", "Raszlor"

Version 14.0 KiB Works with Firefox 9.0 - 12.0a1

- moved addon code to bootstrapped code
- preferencess are now on GMFs addon page
- moved dropdownmenus glass feature to own option group
- added option for semi-transparent dropdownmenus (wip)
- added option "glass and custom tabs v2". -> use this, if v1 background is too white in some cases.
- new option: more space between menubar items
- new option: make menuseperators visible
- internal changes
- better support for GroupTabsManager-extension
- new option to disable "about:blank" transparency ("about:blank"s transparency only works with "Stylish" installed and enabled anyway).
This option can solve a rare problem that appears on "" when downloading an image. This "bug" is not GMFs fault, since it styles the "about:blank" page and some scripts on "" masquerade their "image-in-new-tab" function as "about:blank" page.
