Firefox 3 Aero theme for Firefox 4+

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Well for what its worth this extension will work up to & including FF 28, all it needs is a max version tweak to the install.rdf file that's contained within the .xpi file.

Firefox 3 Aero theme for Firefox 4+

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

So true the max version hack.

You could also set the max version to *.* so you don't need to change the max version number

Classic TB2

TB15 + classic TB2 theme Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For what its worth you can get this extension working in Tb15 by performing a max version hack on the install.rdf file contained withing the .xpi file
Look for the line <em:maxVersion>

Ignore Aero

blue background Rated 3 out of 5 stars

To get the blue background in mail toolbar with this theme installed / enabled, try the following.

This snipped of code seems to be working for me in TB8, close thunderbird & paste the following into your userChrome.css file

toolbox {background: #d3daed !important;}

save the file & re-launch thunderbird

Classic Reloaded

Message header Rated 3 out of 5 stars

In Thunderbird 8, with all the message header buttons removed &amp;amp; this theme installed, the "from" part of message header has shunted out of alignment &amp;amp; gone further to right.

This happens with a clean profile, without this theme installed the alignment is restored to normal.

See http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/851/tb8header.jpg/
for image as effected.

Apart from that, nice to see the colored icons back in Thunderbird where they belong. This is the same effect as the Classic TB2 theme which also miss aligns the from part.

Also is there a version with the star rather than the flag. Currently have version 1.5.2 of this theme installed. Is there a css entry that can restore this? if no version available.

Firefox 3 Aero theme for Firefox 4+

Theme under vista Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Nicely done. couple of observations
The secure website green highlighting is much lighter vs 3.6.19.
Is there any way to darken it back to v3.6.19 before any future updates?

The toolbar icons are slightly larger than that of v3.6.19 - this is a good thing as they are more ledge able. Not overly noticeable unless doing a side by side comparison via a print screen or similar.

In addition to what I typed below, to get an icon to show up in firefox 4 & 5

Once extension downloaded to desktop, open .xpi file
Go to folder “chrome\duplicatethistab.jar\skin\modern\duplicatethistab\”
Extract file labelled "tab-drag-duplicate-indicator.png"
Edit in a suitable programme that can resize by pixels
Resize image to 48x48 pixel, & save as Icon.png
Resize ORIGINAL file to 64x64, & save as Icon64.png

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

If you get problems with short cut combinations e.g. web console under firefox 4 using CTRL+SHIFT+K.
Try installing KeyConfig extension from http://mozilla.dorando.at/
Once installed, bring up the Keyconfig options & set "abort element selection" to your preferred combination, locate combination duplicate from list & re-assign or remove.

If you get an add-on that comes up as disabled you can TRY modifying the <em:maxVersion> number in the install.rdf file for this extension

How:
Download the extension to your desktop
open the .xpi file in an archive prog e.g. 7-Zip (associate the file type with prog if needed)
Open install.rdf file in notepad or similar, search file for <!-- firefox -->
Just below there is an entry labelled <em:maxVersion>
Change the number that follows for example <em:maxVersion>5.0.*</em:maxVersion>
Save file & update archive, drag into firefox to install.

IE Tab V2 (Enhanced IE Tab)

Sites filter tab, settings button Rated 3 out of 5 stars

When you go to the "sites filter tab" of IE Tab 2 & click on the settings button the options that pop-up overlay the URL box as well as the space above & below, possible fixes for this could be 1) have a deeper screen to accommodate these options. 2) have the options on show normally but place them below the URL box e.g. how no script has these buttons under general tab.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (2.12.21.1). 

Duplicate This Tab

Add-ons icon Rated 3 out of 5 stars

For Duplicate this tab:
One thing that's missing from this port over is an icon for the add-ons screen (even a default icon of a jigsaw piece)

By removing the following line from the install.rdf the default icon shows up under 3.6
<em:iconURL>chrome://duplicatethistab/skin/icons/duplicatethistab-icon-small.jpg</em:iconURL>
Note Firefox 4.0b10 still has no icon shown. The file referenced above does exist at the above location though.

Duplicate This Tab

Add-ons icon Rated 3 out of 5 stars

From Duplicate tab there is a jigsaw piece that shows up in duplicate tab extension under Firefox 3.6. If you install duplicate tab extension into Firefox 4 beta 10 at time of typing this (needs a max version hack to get it to install), the jigsaw piece shows up.Contd.

Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus

Element hiding & no script Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Can any1 tell me what happened with the ctrl+shift+k hotkey? o.O
Answer: Its assigned to web console under Firefox 4 beta 7(see tools menu), still works under Firefox 3 though

FYI when using Firefox 4 beta 7
With the combination of No script (v2.0.8.1) & add-block element hiding helper (v1.1) the CTRL+SHIFT+S combination brings up the no script allow / block right click menu & not the element hiding helper (no key combo modified by me)

Therefore CTRL+SHIFT+K wont work & neither does CTRL+SHIFT+S

Also why the name change to Element Hiding Helper for Adblock Plus. Rather than leaving it as Adblock Plus Element Hiding Helper as in previous versions as it now sits further down the installed extensions list

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1).
