Kempelton is back another time ^_^!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good news: if anybody wants to keep using Kempelton icons with Firefox 29+, you can use those three addons (works with default FF 29+ theme):
- Classic Theme Restorer
- Classic Toolbar Buttons (Kempelton icons are included!)
- Classic Bookmarks Button (Kempelton bookmark icon is also included and automatically activated)
You can also use personas to get a full Kempelton-like look'n'feel...

Красиво. Весьма напоминает по стилю Qute, так что любители оценят. Всё работает чётко.

Very nice and cleanlook Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I really appreciate this good theme, but sadly i dont use it only because i cant select tabs when they are in upline position, with the mouse cursor at the top up position. I have to move mouse a bit in down, for click tabs... and this become annoying in my point of view. I will be very happy if you can fix this. Thanks however for your work.
P.s.: sorry for my bad english...

Kempelton Reloaded Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I recently upgraded from ff3.6.25 to ff9. Unfortunately i can't get kempelton reloaded to work with any persona. I either use kempelton with no persona or a persona with the default ff theme. I posted the problem on the mozillazine forums & tried this alternate method(see below) by a poster. It worked, but when i fired up my pc the next morning there was no persona, only the kempelton reloaded theme. I tried over & over to get it to work but no luck. Another poster replied to the 'alternate way' to another posters reply with this:"Yes, the method works with any theme that supports Personas. But the Theme has to contain all of the support styles and have a switch in it's install manifest to work. Personas Plus 1.4 extension shipped with a set of styles that makes the theme transparent. This was not included in the versions after this because starting with Firefox 3.6, the default theme began shipping with it's own Persona support styles. At this point all themes that wanted to support Personas were required to contain their own custom support styles and the install manifest switch. If a theme does not contain the install manifest switch there is an about:config pref to force the theme to allow Personas to work, but it still requires the support styles (which have to be custom crafted for the theme) and the multiple restarts." Applying Personas on top of Custom Themes

Alternate Method Installing the user.js File

Back to Firefox Icons Page Back Thunderbird to Icons Page

Basic Method

Suggestion: Disable AdBlock Plus and NoScript (if you are using them) during the following procedures:

1. Open the Add-ons Manager. Enable the default Firefox theme (restart the browser).

2. Open the Add-ons Manager. Enable any Persona (restart the browser).

3. After enabling a Persona, go back to the Add-ons Manager and enable any Third Party Theme (restart the browser).

4. After enabling the Third Party Theme, go to the Location Bar and type about:config. Hit ENTER. Answer "I'll be careful, I promise!" to the warning if prompted.

5. In the Filter window, type: lightweightThemes.isThemeSelected

6. In the window below, double click lightweightThemes.isThemeSelected to change its value to "true".

7. Restart the browser.

8. If the Persona doesn't show, restart the browser again.

After the restart, you'll see the Persona and the Third Party Theme applied together. Additional restarting of the browser has no effect on your newly combined themes. Repeat the steps above to try other Persona and Third Party Theme combinations.

Alternate Method

Suggestion: Disable AdBlock Plus and NoScript (if you are using them) during the following procedures:

The Basic Method works nice but you may get sick and tired of having to edit about:config every time you want to change themes. To alleviate this problem, create a file with Notepad, save it as user.js in your Firefox profile directory and add the code below (just copy and paste). This will automatically apply the about:config preference so you don't have to change it manually every time you switch themes.

Code:
/* Allow Personas on all Themes */
user_pref("lightweightThemes.isThemeSelected", true);

Now follow the directions above in a slightly modified way:

1. Open the Add-ons Manager. Enable the default Firefox theme (restart the browser).

2. Open the Add-ons Manager. Enable any Persona (restart the browser).

3. After enabling a Persona, go back to the Add-ons Manager and enable any Third Party Theme (restart the browser).

4. After the browser is restarted, you'll notice the Persona isn't applied. Restart the browser again and it will be.

This is probably because the user.js file is loaded before the browser disables Personas upon startup. So it is overwriting your user.js "true" setting with "false". By restarting the browser again, the user.js file is loaded again and this time the setting sticks. If you plan on keeping the same Persona, simply switch themes and don't even touch the Persona. The user.js code listed above will take care of reapplying the Persona. All you have to do is apply your new theme and restart. And if the Persona doesn't stick, simply close and restart Firefox once more, no need to mess around in the Add-ons Manager.

Thanks for this really quick response .. and sorry for not quoting your reply, can't see how (maybe I overlooked?) ..

When I drag that little yellowish figure into the google- map it shows the street but the images flicker constantly .. I checked to make sure I have the latest flashplayer and tried with another theme .. no problems there. Maybe a conflict with one of my other add-ons .. I'll check that later, tomorrow or Tuesday, no time now, but I'll get back to you. :)

Again...I'm not sure how you would find this problem with my theme, as it doesn't (and can't, as far as I'm aware) mess with web pages anyway - Google Maps uses Flash in any case, so this is probably just an error on their side, or your connection.

Kempelton Reloaded Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for restoring one of my favorite themes.Would it be possible to also restore Kempelton Large for those of us that need larger ikons because of sight problems or older eyes?
Thanks again.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (4.1.2). 

I was holding back mostly to see if there was still a userbase for such a theme; clearly there is! Seeing this, I may eventually make a Large version, to suit the needs of those that need the Large theme.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is what I've been waiting. When I heard the news that it was discontinued I was devastated, it was my favorite theme back on 3.6. Which almost made me stay on 3.6. Thanks to the author of this theme for bringing it back. Everything looks great and works very well with persona's. Anyone who was a fan should give this a try.
