not very good
Thanks for the [update]
l love this theme.
When is it gonna be updating.
l am waiting for a long time.
Unfortunately, the latest version (or any other version) does not work in Firefox 50+. To my delight, however, I find that version 5.8.0 works great in Pale Moon 27, if you also use the add-on Theme Compatibility Provider (available at the Pale Moon Add-ons Site). I love the large icons, especially the bookmarks button (cats with hearts) and the throbber (a beautiful cat with a ball and a swingy tail).
And so many of my favorite extensions have themed buttons (Extension Options Menu, Uppity, Stylish, QuickNote, Undo Closed Tab). It even has a cute cat button for AdBlock Plus (although none for uBlock Origin, alas). So I am very pleased to be able to make this work!!
I also love how this theme does private browser windows and the Add-ons Manager.
So even though it appears that the owner of this theme is abandoning it, you can still get some life out of the old mare yet with Pale Moon. And it is really worth it with all the cuteness!
After missing them for a few months, I was so delighted to find "Red cats (green flavor)" and "Red cats (blue flavor)" are now both compatible with the latest version of Firefox (45.01). I'm so glad to see you again: I can again feel at home on the web.
save the xpi file on your computer (right click on the button "add to firefox)
xpi is a zipped file
with a zip software extract the xpi file to a dedicated folder
search into the folder the file install.rdf
open the file install.rdf file with notepad
search words maxVersion
change the version number from 39 to that which you have (only the first two numbers)
zipping the folder
change the extension from .zip to .xpi
drag the new file xpi in firefox
Magic: it works! :-))

Actually, you can download beta version of Cats for Firefox 40-45 from http://www.bluecatsgraphics.com/Firefox_Themes/ and save yourself time and efforts. :)
I keep getting reminder popups to update my Firefox 39.0.3 to 41.0.1, but it tells me Red Cats Blue Flavor is not compatible with this version of Firefox, and will be disabled. I know I need to update, but I really do not want to lose my Cats theme.
Just installed FF version 40, and the Red Cats (Blue) .rdf file needed tweaking again (changing maximum version #).
The theme now works again, but unfortunately THE MINIMIZE-MAXIMIZE-CLOSE BUTTONS IN THE UPPER RIGHT OF THE MENU BAR HAVE VANISHED. They are restored when the theme is disabled, so apparently a code change is needed in the Red Cats themes.
Cela fait quelques temps avec les mises à jour de Firefox, impossible d'installer ce génial module. J'y reste fidèle car vous avez fait un travail artistique inégalé dans les modules !! Bravo et merci encore de nous offrir tous ce petits chats adorables et tout ce bleu si doux. Toutes mes félicitations. Je vous embrasse. Nina
Yes, please update it. My computer at home keeps screaming at me to update firefox, but I won't until I can guarantee I can keep my cats. My computer at work was updated by a colleague (grrrr!) and my cats disappeared.
For Firefox up to version 38.0, just download the latest beta version from the support forum or the home page.
I miss red cats can you updated it please :( I am using Firefox beta 35.0 I am always using this one
I love the red cats addons, both blue and green flavor. Please do whatever it takes for us to be able to use them on 33.0.3. I really miss them and hate losing them every time Firefox updates. Thanks.
The update for both flavors of Cats is currently in the works. If you don't mind using a beta version, please contact me by email.
I've been enjoying the kitties for years now, and can't imagine browsing without them. It's easy to re-install them after every Firefox update, but it still needs a minute of hacking, which is a hassle if I'm busy. Would be better if the developer made them compatible within a day or two of a FF update.
Are there plans to update your excellent cat themes to be compatible with 33.0.3? I just updated from 26.0 and now I've lost my kitties. :(
Yes! The green flavor of Cats for Firefox 33 is already available as a beta version - please contact me by email if you want to try it. The blue flavor is being updated and should be available in a few weeks.
I love cats! Amazing skin, every time I look at it it makes my day better. Than you!
Nice color, graceful cat on icons, comfortable and friendly environment — all that is needed for happiness!
I can't live without this wonderful cat theme, but the latest version, 5.6.3, recently updated to work in FF27, now does NOT work in FF28. (And I hear FF29 is coming soon.) However, the workaround (changing em max version # in .jar file) previously described on this board DOES still work, and is very easy to do. Just try following previously posted instructions, and you will have your cats back in no time...
I find this add-on makes my day. as far as various work arounds go, my routine is to simply wait until there is a version for the newer firefox, and upgrade my firefox then. I refuse to lose my cats. I have been using this add on for as long as I've been using firefox - more than 10 years - and I've never had a problem.
I'm very disappointed that the theme doesn't work for newest update of firefox even though the description says it does. Workaround explained by Goomer does not work either. Guess I'll just wait for the next update and hope it does what says it will.
The description says that the theme works with Firefox 27.0a1, not 27.0.x. These two are not the same: the former is an alpha version and the latter is a release version. So no, version 5.6.2 does not work with Firefox 27.0.x.
Some genius figured out how to do this, wasn't me. I downloaded Red Cats (both flavors using an Explorer tab. Opened the resulting .xpi file with WinRAR. Dragged and dropped the install.rdf file in a directory then dragged and dropped it into notepad. In the line that says " 27.0a1" I changed the 27 to a 42 (seemed like a good number). Saved the file, dragged and dropped it into the open WinRAR archive where it overwrote the original install.rdf. Closed WinRAR, double clicked on the .xpi file, installed it into Firefox 27.0 and it is running perfectly. I have cats again!!!
I love Red Cats (green flavor). It makes my FF browser a lot more fun (I use a browser for research work). It has icons for every thing I want to do. I'm disappointed that, once again, FF has made it incompatible. I look forward to the next update.
I have missed having this. Love the way the cat's tail bounces the ball when pages are loading and just like the overall look. After an update awhile back the app quit working and when I checked there was no update, so went back to the boring default. I haven't used my laptop much lately as the ipad does most of what I need, but remembered to check for update tonight and got my cats back! thank you!
I just upgraded to FF 24. Tried the work-around suggested, but no deal. How can we get the latest version to keep up with FF?
I love my Red Cats, and have used them for a very long time. It is very frustrating when I get a Firefox upgrade that's incompatible. Right now I'm still using 22.0 until Red Cats is compatible with 23. I wish it were easier to find out when an upgrade is compatible.
J'adore ce thème. Il est parfait tant visuellement qu'au niveau fonctionnalité (le petit chat qui bouge sa queue pendant les téléchargements me fait presque regretter d'avoir maintenant une connexion rapide !)
Merci beaucoup à son développeur, je lui souhaite une très très longue vie et encore merci à lui pour ce cadeau qui enchante ma navigation.
