When the browser is in full screen, the all the function buttons disappear (minimize, maximize, close tab buttons, etc). Very disappointed, as LavaFox is my favorite set of Firefox themes and they've been incompatible with the new versions of Firefox for a long time. So I was excited to see they were back. My excitement quickly dwindled.
Used for Firefox for Years since v1 in 2005, and Lavafox ever since the Original v1, switched to Purple variant the day it was uploaded, and apart from an unfortunate period, years ago when v1 was completely broken, and v2 not yet created I've never used another theme.
The ups, and down in compatibility, have always been on Mozilla's end, this would still be much more popular if Mozilla hadn't relegated real themes in favour of the trashy backgrounds, they usurped them with.
Quantum is the Final straw, this theme, and many of my must have addons will never work in that abomination of a Chrome clone.
Having Looked at Water fox, it's too close to the modern Chrome Clone for comfort.
That leaves Pale Moon, and I'm glad to report I could use my Addons, Theme, and existing Firefox Profile almost unaltered.
Addons, either have a Pale Moon variant, or need to be compatible with Firefox v24, which in my case isn't really much of a rollback,
All my must have addons were feature complete before v24, or have added/Maintained dual compatibility with Pale Moon.
the later JetPack extensions are not supported, but the only ones I used, replaced old addons, I can reinstall with Pale Moon.
I'm done with Mozilla's "Chrome" Quantum, a sad day, but it's my addons I must have not a crappy Chrome clone.
That brings me to the only issue I have, Lavafox works well enough with v2.5.4, but I noticed this
- For Pale Moon please use version 2.5.0
1 Why, what's better about that version?
2 How can I even get v2.5.0, I can find no link, either here, or on Zigboom's website
Version History - See all versions links
Themes are missing that previous version option, and though I've got vague, recollections of a non Mozilla source, I can't be sure or find any old Bookmarks to anything except a now dead Zigboom Blog.
Further research has brought up this Facebook Post. I will not use Facebook, and never even looked.
-=< The Future of Firefox Themes >=-
Mozilla announced that Firefox will stop supporting themes when version 57 hits the official channel. Since there are no signs of new theme API, Mozilla is disabling all 3rd party themes on the next version bump.
Our themes LavaFox & BlackFox will keep supporting other Firefox Forks, mainly Waterfox & Pale Moon.
The latest theme versions are fully compatible with Waterfox and will keep updating.
Pale Moon is supported with themes version 2.5.0. Special version will be uploaded to Pale Moon's add-on site as soon as possible.
All the themes are available here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/user/4710003/
Previous Versions Links
So that answers my future concerns, and only leaves the Pale Moon's current v2.5.0 requirement.
I've worked out the Previous versions link is same format used for the Extensions.
You Simply add, the next line to any Add-ons base page address
LavaFox V2-Purple (Main Page Address)
Adding the versions section, make sure to add a leading "/" if your Firefox address is missing it
LavaFox V2-Purple Version History
Install v2.5.0, for Pale Moon until Zigboom can provide the custom Pale Moon Themes, which will be posted here
I don't get it, why is this impossible to just migrate to FF 57 like so many other devs have done? Not everyone wants to go to a completely different browser. If it truly can't be, then can a completely new one be made that works with FF57 when time allows?
I love this theme. but it won't let me use it on the updated firefox.
Thanks for your review ! Firefox blocks all 3rd party themes & legacy add-ons at version 57. You can try Waterfox, it's fully compatible.
These Lavafox themes I have used and loved for years. They are my favorite.
Easy on the eyes and love the colors. No matter what I download/ install to use, I have always gone back to this LavaFox purple theme. Can't believe I never wrote a review. It's been years since I've first started to use this one and at one point after firefox updated, I was unable to use this but I guess the awesome dev fixed that. A bit after, I did contribute but these guys deserve so much more that what I was able to send. Thanks as always Zigboom! :)
Thanks Megan! very nice to read your review! You're welcome! as always :)
Execelente! Recomendadísimo! :D
I would dearly love to use this extension but it seems to restrict the use of Tree Style Tab when mounted anywhere but the top of the screen.
I often have so many tabs open that I cannot operate without TST.
The theme looks brilliant and I look forward to the day when they work together.

Defintivamente mi favorito :)
My absolute favourite design of all the themes :D Thanks therefore!
Thanks for your feedback!
I love all of the LavaFox themes. The color scheme is perfect and I have not found any bugs. Keep up the great work.
Thanks for your review!
This is an excellent theme. I have had no real problems with it and when something does go a foul it is fixed within 15 to 20 minutes.
I have all 4 colors each on a separate profile.
Easy way to ID each profile.
Does not interfere with other add-ons.
easy on the eyes and cool on the soul - awesome!
Un très joli thème qui modifie même les menus (ce que je recherchais), et en mauve comme ça. Que du bonheur !
Overall, a nice looking theme with major improvements to tab design, bookmarks and other menus. My only concern is the new minimalistic version of the toolbar buttons. They are much smaller and grayed out, even when you mouse over them, which makes them very difficult to see. I preferred the shape and style of the old toolbar buttons from version 1.3.6, but to each his own.
Even though I always use the large buttons option as my default toolbar setting, the result is still poor visibility. Please bring back the old toolbar buttons or make the new buttons a little bigger and brighter. Perhaps a shade of fluorescent purple would add a nice contrast to the black background.
It shows an image of Google having a black background, yet this add-on does not do that. I still have the same white-page issue, and it detracts from this browser skin. Can you make the backgrounds have the same gorgeous black they should have? I have light sensitive eyes, and the black theme is the biggest reason I choose this add-on (and others). Other than that, It's lovely.
First, I love the way this looks. It's sharp. I like that you can mix text labels and icons in different toolbars in firefox, unlike in some themes, where you have to choose one or the other. I had an issue at first with it conflicting with another add-on, but the support crew responded immediately, and it is now resolved. A+ support makes a "it's good" application into a "great" one! I love it! Thanks!
Thanks for your review! It's definitely a bug and not a normal behavior. Please write a support request in the support forum or at http://www.zigboom.com/contact.html
The whole LavaFox series is slick and I especially like the combination of purple and black.
Simply Awesome theme. Superb designing. Hope we can get more excellent themes from this developer..... Thanks a Lot
Very good theme
Thanks for the feedback!
Love this Firefox theme just wish it was available for Thunderbird 3.1.12 also.
Thanks for your review!
Sorry, too busy with other projects, cannot support too many themes.
Очень понравилась эта тема, спасибо! ^__^
Zigboom has the best themes. They are probably some of the greatest themes I have ever seen. Mind-blowing!
AMAZING THEME!! but my blank page is supposed to be a dark page with a purple circle in it, right? but why is it literally blank? a total blank page with nothing in it.. please help me fix this problem. thanks!
Thanks for the compliments but please use the support forum so we could have a dialogue & other people could learn too.
