Version 0.6.20090616 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 3.0 - 3.5.*

Version 0.6.20090428 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.5.*

+ Updated to install with Firefox 3.5 Beta 4
+ Updated for changes in ScribeFire (add-on) version 3.3.

Version 0.6.20090322 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.5b4pre

Handles changes in the ScribeFire add-on (in the ScribeFire editor toolbar).

Version 0.6.20090117 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.5b4pre

New in this version:

+ For the add-on StumbleUpon, adds styling of the SU message notification and reply bar (which appears over a page sent to you by another user after you click the incoming message icon in the SU toolbar).
+ For the add-on Tab Mix Plus, restores the appearance of the "New Tab" button in the tab strip. This was broken in the previous NNL release by rules added to handle the Fx3.1beta2 new tab button.
+ For the add-on Sxipper, adds more rules to finish restoring usability to its Training dialog.
+ Extends restart button styling to the Quick Restart add-on. (Thanks NGamer for pointing that out.)
+ Adds styling to the Fx3.1 beta2 "certificate error" page.

Under the covers:

+ Updates notifications.css to assign icons in the info, warning and critical states. Adds file icons/error-16.png (by duplicating file icons/blacklisting_favicon.png) for use in notification strips. This handles the new-for-3.0.5 about:rights notification strip, which is type="info". This is basically a late catch-up with some Fx3 changes.
+ Adds (but doesn't yet use) global/icons/sslWarning.png
+ From netError.css, remove -moz-background-clip: padding from the main #errorPageContainer (because on Fx3.1b2, was a gap between background and border at the inside of corners).
+ In menulist.css, removes border coloring from .menulist-compact. This isn't used in Firefox, but Thunderbird uses it in the Compose window.
+ A couple sekrit undercover changes for Tbird 2 compatibility.

Special thanks to Clint Bell, Jon Connelly, Dean (NinjaTek), DMCrimson, Shingoshi and everyone else for bug reports and help with testing.

Version 0.6.20081231 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b3pre

New in this version:

+ Several refinements for Firefox 3.1b2.
+ Adds support for the Sxipper add-on. The Training dialog has a white background which requires special handling on dark themes.
+ Adds support for the Mobile Barcoder add-on. If barcodes are displayed on typical black popup background, it foils image recognition on certain mobile phones. Instead, we now display with a white background and thin border. This was only an issue in context menus over a link or over selected text -- and not in the statusbar popup for this add-on.
+ For the DownThemAll add-on, removes the theme-specific "Donate Now" image from the DownThemAll Manager (since they've upgraded to a version of the image that works great with dark themes).
+ For Mac/OS X menus, now handles the case of the bare document icon (a page with no favicon) in the history menu. This is in addition to previous Mac-specific styling of the bookmarks menu. Requires an updated Stylish stylesheet http://userstyles.org/styles/11097 .
+ Under the covers, several code changes to improve maintainability.
+ For a subscribable news and annoucements feed, see http://nightlaunchnews.blogspot.com

Version 0.6.20081205 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b3pre

+ Updates maxVersion to 3.1b3pre.
+ Fixes alignment of menuitems to line up into columns. (Was most noticeable in the Bookmarks and Tools menus.)
+ For the MR Tech Toolkit add-on, replaces the icon for the "Extensions Manager" toolbarbutton with a theme-styled version.
+ In the Add-ons Manager, replaces the "Installation" icon with a theme-styled version.
+ Adds rules for the Lazarus add-on options window.
+ Removes unused "Email" main toolbar icon.

Version 0.6.20081121 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b3pre

+ Adds rules for the FEBE add-on to provide special handling for dropdown menus on the Scheduling tab.
+ Adds a few rules for the SQLite Manager add-on.
+ Adds a few rules for the eBay Companion add-on.
+ Updates night launch list to include STS-126.
+ Removes all FAMFAMFAM icons and replaces them with versions from original sources -- four tag icons, the small plug-in icon, and the password manager key icon. (But thanks for the previous use of your uber-cool icons! http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/silk/ )

Version 0.6.20081031 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b2pre

+ For DOM Inspector, styles the two default toolbarbuttons (select and search) in the DOMi toolbar.
+ Adds styling for the Stacked Inspector add-on.
+ Updates maxversion to 3.1b2pre

Under the covers:

+ Removes launch image from tabbrowser tabpanels, making it just black. Reason: this was a second launch image shown not IN empty tabs but BEHIND them, and even then it was only visible for a brief moment. This was confusing and pointless. userContent.css code to add the launch image to empty tabs still works just the same as before.
+ Fixes vertical alignment issues with complex primary toolbarbuttons (type="menu-button", unified) when in menubar with mode=text+icons.
+ Deletes unused file global/domInspector.css
+ Deletes unused directory xpi_skins/inspector and its contents
+ Coalesces all DOM Inspector icons into xpi_skins/dominspector/toolbar.png

Version 0.6.20081008 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1b2pre

New in this version:

+ Adds Mac-specific icons for the Bookmarks Menu (when used in conjunction with Stylish and style http://userstyles.org/styles/11097 ). For more info and instructions, visit that URL.
+ Updates max version to include Fx 3.1b1pre.


Version 0.6.20080809 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1a2pre

New in this version:

+ Updated for compatibility with the latest TabMixPlus build for Fx3 (development build 0.3.7pre.080728 -- while keeping compatibility with TMP 0.3.6 on Fx2).
+ Makes the Fx3 urlbar splitter (the splitter between the location bar and the search bar) invisible by default (the same as in the Fx3 default theme).
+ Adds new Fx3-specific subskin "visible-urlbar-search-splitter" for anyone who prefers a visible splitter.
+ Fixes bug where the tab close button on the selected browser tab was 1 pixel higher than on unselected tabs.
+ In DOM Inspector, when inspecting a text node, correctly uses dark-on-light text color for visibility in the right panel.

Under the covers:

+ Makes the NNL theme file contain the exact same throbber file names and locations as in the default theme, for compatibility with any extensions which may use them. This doesn't change the throbbers shown for NNL ... just the locations of some files within the theme.
+ Removes several unused files.

Version 0.6.20080712 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.1a2pre

Updated primarily for extension compatibility:

+ Updates styling for most-recent versions of Del.icio.us, FireFTP, TabMixPlus, Colorzilla, Console2, MR Tech Toolkit.

Also:

+ Adjusts toolbarseparator margins within toolbox for symmetry across all cases.
+ Fixes coloring of selected tree item and listbox item to handle large font cases.
+ Makes consistent the coloring and usage of "current item" (different from selected item) border highlighting throughout (default trees, default listboxes, trees in sidebar, Sage).

Version 0.6.20080624 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0.*

This is mostly a rapid-response update for Sage users.

+ Adds support for the new Sage 1.4.0 and up
+ Also adds updated styling for the add-ons gui:config and 2 Pane Bookmarks
+ Boosts brightness of on-dark disabled text by about 6%
+ Replaces the toolbar clouds subskin image (used in style-1 and style-2) with a smoother version that better blends with the overall theme style
+ Adds hover highlighting to the star button for starred pages
+ Improves styling of the "Get Add-ons" search box, making the disabled state look disabled (among other improvements)
+ Includes various other minor tweaks

Under the covers:

* Modified the CSS selectors for subskins window-picture-2 and window-picture-4 (removing [theme="nasanightlaunch"]). This is to work around a problem (which had seemed to be fixed but which some users are still seeing) with NNL and Firefox 3 which is causing, in some cases, the background image on the main browser window not to be drawn until the user does something to trigger a redraw (such as clicking the star button twice to open the pop-up). XBL bindings work differently in Fx3 vs. Fx2 (in particular, the sequence in which XBL bindings are applied, relative to the initial drawing of the browser window background) so this needs to be handled differently in the theme.

Version 0.6.20080621 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0.*

+ Improves layout for location bar and dropdown list.
+ Gives full visibility (instead of hidden until rollover) to the star button.
+ Minor changes to spacing around search bar splitter, between location bar and search bar (but you might need to know about these if you've heavily tweaked your layout).

Version 0.6.20080616 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0.*

Updated for Firefox 3

Version 0.6.20080526 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0.*

Updated for compatibility with Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1 (but don't forget, this is still a Beta theme for a Beta browser).

New in this version:

+ Adds theme-specific icons to the dropdown menus across the top of the library (bookmarks organizer) window.
+ Adds Fx3-specific icons for history sidebar, bookmarks sidebar, and library (bookmarks organizer) sidebar.
+ Updates ScribeFire rules for ScribeFire 2.2.5 ("special character" button, "strip style" button, toolbar button padding).
+ Makes the height of the Fx3 search bar the same as the height of the location bar.
+ Adds styling for the Fx3 Edit This Bookmark (Star Button) popup.

Plus many, many more tweaks and improvements throughout for compatibility with Firefox 3 RC1 and maximum browsing pleasure.

Enjoy your new Firefox!

Version 0.6.20080517 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0.*

Updated for compatibility with Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1 (but don't forget, this is still a Beta theme for a Beta browser).

New in this version:

+ Adds styling for major UI changes in the latest ScribeFire add-on (v2.2.1).
+ Honors one of my longest-standing requests and most-asked-for (yes, really) enhancements: reducing the height of the statusbar by one pixel! :)
+ Resolves issues with the Firefox 3 Applications pane on the Options window. (You can scroll the list now.)
+ Makes the "About NASA Night Launch" dialog fully operational with Firefox 3 (accommodating changes in the security and permissions model for Firefox 3).
+ Adds support for the Fx3-specific phishing and malware warning pages (see https://www.mozilla.com/firefox/its-a-trap.html and https://www.mozilla.com/firefox/its-an-attack.html )

Plus many, many more tweaks and improvements throughout for compatibility with Firefox 3 RC1 and maximum browsing pleasure.

Enjoy your new Firefox!

Version 0.6.20080402 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0pre

Updated for Firefox 3 Beta 5.

Version 0.6.20080311 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0pre

Updated for Firefox 3 Beta 4

Version 0.6.20080226 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0b4pre

Updated for compatibility for Firefox 3 Beta 3 (and not with nightlies, even though it will install with 3.0b4pre nightly versions)

New in this version:
+ Improved AIOS support
+ Improved DOM Inspector styling
+ For Fx3, set height of Add-on Installation dialog correctly (was too short before)
+ For Fx3, improved support in subskins for unified back+forward navigation button
+ Corrects spacing of focus outline for on-white buttons (e.g. feed preview page)
+ Various other minor improvements

Version 0.6.20080213 1.9 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0b4pre

Updated for Firefox 3 Beta 3.

Firefox 3 isn't finished yet and neither is this theme. Subskins won't be fully updated until after Firefox 3 is officially released.

Version 0.6.20071226 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0b3pre

Bumps max version to include 3.0b3 pre.

Also adds support for Fission extension.

Version 0.6.20071208 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0b2

Catch-up release for Fx3 Beta users. Restores functionality to browser-tabs, the URL bar, the Go button, the star button, and the search bar.

I haven't decided how I want to style these yet, with the new nav-bar layout, but this at least restores functionality.

Version 0.6.20071115 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0b2

Expands range of supported Firefox versions to install with Firefox 3 Beta 2.

Version 0.6.20071109 1.8 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0b1

New in This Version:

*** IMPORTANT: If you were using one of the subskins "options-picture-3" or "options-picture-13", these are now available for separate download (and have been removed from the theme). See chrome://global/skin/extras/subskins.html for download information.

+ Bumps max version to include support for Fx3 Beta 1.
+ Reduces theme size by about 400k for faster installation.
+ Browser-tab drag-and-drop indicator now works with Fx3 Beta 1 too.
+ Several enhancements for drag-and-drop highlighting in the Bookmarks Toolbar.
+ Adds Set Desktop Background dialog styling.
+ Adds styling specific to Firebug extension.
- Moves subskins "options-picture-3" and "options-picture-13" out of the theme. These are now available for separate download. See chrome://global/skin/extras/subskins.html for download information.
- Removes Chatzilla motif 'output-motif.css' from the theme.

Bug Fixes:

* Now styles the scroll buttons at the top and bottom of very long menus. Before, it didn't gray out when disabled; also, style was inconsistent (icon moved, inset border) with style for rest of theme. Now displays state-specific icon for disabled, normal and hover states. Increased padding for larger hit target, added background color on hover to match same color as hovered menu item, and removed the border.
* Restores missing icons for pages with favicons in Minefield Personal Bookmarks toolbar. This is refixing the bug with larger-than-16-by-16 favicons, this time for Minefield too.
* Corrects layout errors in bookmarks and history sidebar. (Minefield only.)

Under the Covers:

+ Adds drag-and-drop indicator icon for bookmarks toolbar (but still doesn't work for dropping onto folder ... just insertion between items). (Fx3 Beta 1 only.)
+ Adds color to drag-and-drop indicator (the line at the insertion point) for menus (but you still can't see it, because Firefox Beta 1 doesn't yet implement this feature). (Fx3 Beta 1 only.)
+ Adds color to drag-and-drop indicator (the line at the insertion point) for menus, between items in the Bookmarks Toolbar, and around folders in the Bookmarks Toolbar. It was colored black before; now you can actually see it. (Fx2 only.)
+ Adds scrollcorner coloring (where two scrollbars meet).
* No longer includes MTLI package local_install/skin in the theme. Instead, uses CSS within the theme's xpi_skins package to style this add-on. (You won't notice the change.)
+ Adds styling for editable tree widgets.
+ Hides domain (web site) information for "Larry" identity indicator. (Fx3 Beta 1 only.)
+ Adds theme styling to the "Question" icon (used in some pop-ups). The theme doesn't use it, but in the default theme this is used in the commonDialog. Bothering to make the icon because some extensions may use it.
* Smooths out the sharp edge on fade to black at top of STS-116 about:blank image (empty tab background image).
+ Adds styling for home page link color on "About Adblock Plus" dialog.
+ Sets YouTube player color on Video extras page.

As always, with Fx3 Beta changes, I'm holding off on final treatment for Fx3 to be released.

Version 0.6.20071024 2.2 MB Works with Firefox 2.0 - 3.0a9

New in this version:

+ Add style rules for Places Organizer window and Edit Bookmark dialog. (Minefield Only)
+ Add style rules for Places' "Star" toolbar button. (Minefield Only)
+ In Add-ons Manager, handle the Show/Hide Update Information button. (Minefield Only)
+ Style the "Larry" part (box around the favicon) of the Location Bar. (Minefield Only)

Bug fixes:

* In Add-ons Manager, don't display the "Does not provide secure updates" message when not applicable. (Minefield Only)
* Restore Go button styling for latest Minefield implementation. (Minefield Only)
* Fix the bouncing-location-bar bug with NNL on Minefield. (Adds min-width:7em to the Location Bar, following changes in Minefield default theme, although the min-width applies to both Fx2 and Fx3.)
* Restore browser-tab functionality for the latest Minefield implementation (related to Bug 395402 - Remove theme-specific bindings). (Minefield Only)
