Funny idea and niche, but performed very well!
Thanks for your feedback!
Just one small problem, can you please make the back and forward button bigger, as well as other buttons such as minimize, pin tab etc??
Other than that, Loveeee the cool design of this theme very very much!! smooth glass feelings. almost same standard as Apple
Thanks for your feedback & huge compliment! Apple is definitely one of the most inspiring ..
There used to be big/small icon preference & the theme supported it but Firefox dropped support so unfortunately the big buttons don't exist.
It's strange, would be great to have both options, but we have to choose only one size (preferring to keep things compact if only one option is available).
I'm writing this in the hope the authors will see it.
There are not many good dark themes that will work with FF29 on Mac. Everyone says this theme is easy on the eyes (and it is) but in the effort to make it non-taxing some elements have just lost too much contrast. For example:
. with many tabs open I find it hard to see which is the active tab in the tab bar. I use the green version because it has the most contrast in the tab but a yellow version could be better - even better would be yellow with reversed font color on the active tab. However, for the active tab the tab title is less important than its color (because what page it is can usually be determined easily from the content).
. I have trouble with the back/forward button, the new tab button and the zoom buttons because of the lack of contrast in these buttons.
For some symbols its desirable that they recede because they aren't used so often or their context is clear from other aspects (like the search field which has g for google in - making the magnifying glass recede is good because its clear what the field is) - but for buttons one uses so much, like back/forwards, +newTab and zoom (well I use them loads) its nice to be able to find them quickly, reliably and without struggling to see what they are. I regularly click on new tab instead of back because I can't see where these two are. I have normal eyesight but am not a teenager so if it bothers me it probably bothers many people.
Good work - I've taken the trouble to write this because I will benefit from these being addressed and its about the best for mac - many of the dark themes are for windows or linux. Actually some of them work on FF on mac but I don't want to fiddle around editing my theme to work around things every time FF updates (six times a day it seems recently).
Thanks for your feedback!
The toolbar icons will get updated some time in near future, it's a work in progress and at the moment there's a mix of new and old (recent Firefox update broke many things and there's a lot of work just to keep up, - as you noticed :)
Anyway, it's in the pipeline, you'll notice some changes soon (starting from the zoom probably). There are further plans for high contrast option (via user-style) .. just need more time ..
Please contact us on http://www.zigboom.com and attach a screenshot and we'll try to help ...
By far the easiest on the eyes theme. Great theme for working in the dark or light. All fonts are easy to read. But since the new ff29 update the LavaFox theme stops the bottom tool bar from being displayed. I am using ff version 28 and LavaFox works but now the add-on bar won't display. Firefox forced the 29 update and I was unable to get it to work as I needed, even with add-ons "classic theme restorer" and "tabs on bottom" So I reinstalled 28 and stopped the updating in about:config to keep it that way. But now LavaFox (the best and easiest on the eyes theme) stops the the bar at the bottom from being displayed. I advice all to try LavaFox, you will love it. And I ask LavaFox to look into fixing the problem with 28 and the add-on bar and if you can't, that's OK, you have given so many wonderful years of the best theme ever.
Thanks for your feedback!
You can fix it with Stylish, then add this short code to a new (empty) user-style.

LavaFox V2 Blue and Red have been my themes of choice since first released. I've stuck with them through thick and thin. That makes it particularly difficult to leave this theme behind now, but with the release of FF29, I can no longer use FF the way that it is most productive for me if LavaFox remains my theme. With FF29, Mozilla made a design change to the toolbars, removing the Add-ons toolbar completely, and making the "Tabs on top" of the address bar permanent, with even the "about:config" option unable to change it. That change has left a whole lot of folks baffled, myself included. It feels counter intuitive, and senseless to remove the option. Additionally, with the LavaFox theme, especially if you have several tabs open, it detracts from the aesthetics of the theme considerably IMO. Fortunately, we are left with an option to use the Classic Theme Restorer add-on, and among other things, reverse the toolbars. Unfortunately, there is a bug in LavaFox, or the author's decision to not support that option, and there is no option available within LavaFox itself to do so, which would have been ideal.
I like this theme....after upgrading to Firefox 29.0 this theme still worked. Only one small tweak I would love to see. The favorites button. The add to favorites and list your favorites is the same button but you need to hover slightly to the left or right to discern from the two. I almost always inadvertently add a page I'm viewing to favorites when I'm actually trying to display my list of favorites. This may not be an issue for some...not sure. I was wondering if they could actually be two separate buttons? Albeit small ones that take up the same amount of space. I would definitely write a new review giving this cool looking theme 5 stars then.
Thanks for your feedback!
Unfortunately a theme cannot separate the button, this is a change in Firefox on version 29. It affects all themes. But, I heard that there is an add-on that brings back the two buttons ..
Try this: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/starbuttoninurlbar/ (watch for the instructions, needs another add-on) ..
This is a question not a demand. Yesterday with Firefox v28 it worked fine so whats different about reversing the changes has the theme also updated or not. My only reason for using the Classic Theme Restorer is to reurn my Firefox to how it was yesterday not years ago. Most of those who use this tool newly from today, are pointed to it by Mozilla to try and appease the uproar from trashing our carefully organised setups without warning and are like me trying to actually cusomise their Firefox Their way, It's a joke of a slogon that for v29 when it hass the exact opposite effect.
Just noticed also Themes are wallpapers and this is now a complete Theme and no new complete themes in have been made in over a year. So how long before these are obsolete and unsupported also, that must be annoying for you Zigboom, the so called new themes are a joke. Firefox is being killed bit by bit leaving a bland and boring mess behind.
Dear File Magician,
The reason I'm not supporting Classic Theme Restorer are purely technical. Since Mozilla dropped support for tabs on bottom for example, they make it nearly impossible to support the old and the new at the same time (very complicated to write such a code).
But, before Australis the theme supported tabs on bottom perfectly, also tabs on top. I suggest to anyone that wants to "freeze Firefox in time" - to use the last version of LavaFox or BlackFox that works perfectly with it.
You won't miss anything by doing so, it should work probably perfectly, please try and let me know how it goes ...
Anyway, if it will turn out to be possible (for me with my limited resources) to support some of the Classic Theme Restorer functions, I'll be happy to ...
By the way, personally I was very much against Australis but honestly, I feel good with it after a few months of usage, actually more customization, not less (but a few features were removed without obvious reasons - I agree, tabs on bottom is one of them). Will research for a solution ...
My favorite theme. Till yesterday it was working fine, but after upgrading my firefox from v28 to v29, when using "Tabs Not On Top" feature in Classic Theme Restorer addon, the tabs are hidden . I can see only the top few pixel of the tabs. Please help... (I m using Lavafox v2.2.0)
Thanks for your feedback!
The theme does not attempt to support tabs on bottom at this time, since Firefox stopped supporting it on Australis update (ver.29). We will look into it but please keep in mind that no theme can support all add-ons perfectly. We do support all Firefox's native features up to Nightly version, add-ons and try to support major add-ons. Classic Theme Restorer is an add-on that makes drastic changes to the interface and reverses Australis changes. It'll be nearly impossible to support it's options.
Anyway, please report bugs on http;//www.zigboom.com/contact.html in order to test properly.
Thanks for your feedback!
great theme, but the google page does not appear black as shown on the examples. how can i do?? thanks
Thanks for your review! The "Darker Google" style needs to be installed via Stylish: http://userstyles.org/styles/43463/darker-google
Beautiful!! Thank you very much for the great quality of your work, Lava is a very fine achievement!
Thank you Vince for your feedback!
Use it for a long time now! Could you please fix/support the appearance/look of the new addon "Download Status Bar" (current Version 1.94)?! With LavaFox disabled its looking ok,
but enabled it looks out of bounds/too big! Many thanx for the great theme anyway!
Thanks for your review!
For bug reports, please contact us at http://www.zigboom.com/contact.html so we could have a dialog, screen-shots etc.
Please write your OS & Firefox versions (not here please, at the above link).
I see you have updated it. But it needs more work. The tab background images don't show. The tabs are hidden when using "Tabs Not On Top" feature in Classic Theme Restorer addon. Only the top few pixel of the tabs can be seen when using that. I hate tabs on top.
Thanks for your review! LavaFox fully supports Australis already, check out version 2.1.3.
Generally, for anyone using Nightly it's a good idea to always check the version info down the theme's page & to look for the latest version that is currently waiting for editor's review.
We're constantly supporting Nightly, no worries ;)
After updating firefox on mac to 24.0 it reskins everything except the top bar for full screen, x out, ect unlike it was shown in the picture.
Hi, this is a known problem, it seems impossible to skin the top bar because of changes in Firefox (Mac Version).
Please install the latest version of LavaFox (2.1.0) from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lavafox-v1/versions/ and contact us so we could verify: http://www.zigboom.com/contact.html
Ho scaricato Lavafox solo di recente, sicchè non ne ho una conoscenza completa, lo sto ancora ''esplorando''...ma una cosa me la sento di dirla tranquillamente: WOOOW!!! Non credevo ci fossero applicazioni così forti e piacevoli da vedere....ero rimasta ai soliti temi classici e poco personalizzabili, complimentoni allo sviluppatore!!!!!! *_*
Thanks for such a nice review! (& thanks to Google for translating such nice words:)
Nice theme. Just one problem: Web Developer menu gets disabled.
Thanks for the feedback. There's already an updated version with a fix to this bug. It's waiting for editor review. It's possible to install it manually from the following link:
I absolutely loved all of the Lava themes....until the addition of the "FVD like" tab page. Could you please also leave a version that does not have that page?
Hi, I have no idea what "FVD like" tab page means. Please specify.
Reviewed for later use
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.
i love this theme have used it for a long time now, only just figured out how to use the alt blank/new tab pic it is awesome! was wondering tho, my google page still has its default white background, and im wondering how you make yours black on the images? i hate the white background really hurts my eyesthanksPixie
Thanks for your feedback! For Google / YouTube and more, check my User-Styles page: http://userstyles.org/users/24480
I really liked the look of LavaFox, and kept it for a couple of days. Unfortunately, there was a dealbreaker for me.
Basically, the tabs no longer extend to the top of the screen, nor do the buttons at top right (Minimize, Restore, Close).
This means that I could no longer 'throw' the mouse cursor up to the top, then slide to the tab and select it. Most importantly, the top right corner of the screen was dead; closing now meant going to the top-right spot, fruitlessly clicking there, then edging down-and-left until the spot lit up, *then* closing the program.
Thanks for the feedback! Interesting points to consider. It will be tested asap for possible solutions.
EDIT: the close button actually behaves as expected, it's possible to bounce to the upper right corner.
The tabs will be tested further for a solution.
hoooo it's incredible thème , i love so much , fantastic , thank's for your work
Although it says that this is incompatible with vs 21, it is. I am using nightly 64bit 21.0.a1. I love this theme. Really kicks it off from the boring default them.
Lavafox brings out more options for a fun online browser experience. Add or undo buttons with ease.
