Noia Fox Version History

41 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 3.1.5 3.8 MiB Works with Firefox 40.0a1 - 56.*

This is a rapid release update that will correct some bugs. This is the reason why there is no compatibility with FF42+.

* Thunderbird : Updated for working with Mac OS.
* Old search bar : Magnifying glass Icon restored (FF).
* Panel subview footer icon restored (FF).
* Updated for FF40 & FF41.
* Windows 10 : caption buttons (FF).
* CTR addon : Go button (FF).
* Uppity addon improved (FF).

I am sorry for users, but I have no more time for updating Noia Fox.
Noia Fox 3.1.5 - released August 8, 2015 - will be the last version.

There are to many changes every month with Firefox code. My job takes me a lot of time (with to many overtime hours) and if I want to have some free time, take care of my health, I must stop theme development.
Noia Fox was my baby. I give it a good look and a good compatibility. So I am very unhappy to stop his development, but when I began to develop Noia, the Firefox updates were not so close from each other.
Now Firefox updates come at a furious pace and we must spend over 30-40 hours per month to keep a theme compatible. I cannot follow this rythm.

Thanks to all users that support my theme for many years

Version 3.0.0 2.7 MiB Works with Firefox 29.0a1 - 32.0

This version of Noia Fox will not work with Firefox versions under 29. Don't install it with these versions.

Firefox 29 default theme is full changed and a lot of features present in older versions cannot be used anymore (tabs on bottom, small & big icons together in the same theme,...). The application menu button is removed and replaced with the "hamburger button". Titlebar and tabs toolbar customization are changed. Customization window is changed. Curved tabs replace square tabs. We have panels for history, bookmarks, developer tools,....

It is no more possible to post a package theme (theme + options). So it is time to post a standalone theme.

This is why the appearance of Noia Fox is full changed with this version. It was impossible for me to keep the old appearance and options because nothing was working with this version of Firefox. I have worked a lot of hours for this new version and I hope you will enjoy it.

Main features :

* Light grey theme. The grey theme reduce the eyes fatigue when surfing the internet for long periods.

* Big colored buttons. Noia Fox is optimized for persons with visual needs

* Tabs : this version introduce a new appearance -> curved tabs . They are more appropriate with Noia icons and there is no bug with add-ons that skin tabs.

* Tabs toolbar is no more skinned (aero for Windows 7, integration into titlebar for Linux and Mac).

* No more Mac buttons (minimize, restore, maximize) for Windows.

* Compatible with Windows (from Windows XP to Windows 8), Mac OSX and Linux (tested with Ubuntu).

* Noia Fox can be used with RTL languages (arabic, hebrew,...)

* Noia Fox is optimized for Web developers (all Firefox 10+ tools, Console 2, Firebug,...)

* I have posted a standalone Noia Fox Options add-on that give some options if you want to customize Noia Fox :
- No border for toolbars (FF).
- Icons only for bookmarks toolbar (FF).
- Small icons for Navigation toolbar (FF)
- Classic Noia Fox square tabs (FF)
- Persona enable (FF & TB)
- About home skinned with Noia icons (FF).
- Fix : personas tabs for Linux (FF)
- Fix : Image toolbar add-on (FF).

* Noia Fox is full compatible with Classic Theme Restorer (made by Aris). With this add-on, you can add features present in older Firefox versions (tabs under the navigation toolbar, Application button, movable back-forward buttons, star in url,....) and you can remove some animations that Mozilla introduces with Australis theme (panels, downloads, bookmarks) if you don't like them.

* This version introduces the new Australis appearance for Thunderbird that came with version 24 (curved tabs).

*Personas (or themes)
- If you want to use Personas with Noia Fox, install Noia Fox options.
- If you want to customize Personas, install Personas Expression add-on (text color, shadow, transparency , ....)

* Black Noia Fox : this theme is no longer developped (too much work - it would be easier to launch a standalone black Noia Fox theme and I have not the time for doing it).

Version 2.3 MiB Works with Firefox 24.0 - 28.0

- Updated for Firefox 26, 27 & 28.
- Some icons modified.
- Added some context menu icons.
- Noia Fox Option max version modified : this add-on will not be compatible with versions greater than Firefox 28, because there are too much incompatibilities with FF29+.

Compatibility with Firefox 29 will come later (april 2014) : Firefox 29 default theme comes with a lot of changes, with limited personal customizations (for example : Tabs on top only).
A full new Noia Fox theme will be launched with this version of Firefox. This will be a light version of actual Noia Fox, with only one theme (light grey), without Mac buttons for Windows, with aero appearance.
I will keep compatibility with Personas. Noia Fox Options will be limited to some options (Personas, Icons only for bookmarks toolbar). A beta version will be launched soon.
