As far as dark, red-highlighted themes with animated icons, this one has NO competition. Nearly every visual element of the FF layout has been changed, yet the icons and graphic elements show no conflicts such as misalignment with standard design elements and fonts as you see with many other themes that try to change this much of the UI. I didn't have to make any color or font adjustments whatsoever, and it works perfectly with every addon that correctly adapts to themes. The animated icons add life to an otherwise blasé browsing session. I wouldn't mind seeing some of these design elements in the Photoshop ui or Windows.
I would donate to this effort, but some of the other theme developers should stop begging for undeserved reward and take heed of this theme's wonderworks. I can tell it was a product of pure devotion.
I found this theme/addin very obtrusive, and buggy. I have a Ge-Force GTX 260 graphics card with the latest drivers. On several occasions I lost control of the FF window due to some graphics glitch that wouldn't let me click on any buttons, and I could only shut down FF through the Task Manager. I can't afford to be entering important data into a online form or doing email or even browsing and suddenly lose control of FF. I've used several other very fancy add-on themes with animation, window decorations and alternate fonts with no graphics issues. (I'm really enjoying this Nuri theme by the way ;)
I also think it's invasive. It integrates into FF and takes over control of the theme addin section so that whenever you go to the themes tab and click on Get Themes it sends you to the Personas web page even though Personas is completely disabled! WTF?
Additionally (yes, there's More), if you disable it, you can't uninstall it, which forces you to re-install it -- AGAIN -- to access the uninstall button. And you Will want to uninstall it because it puts a huge 8-line entry in a Tools > Personas submenu. Who knows what other bits and pieces of it are left over in FF just waiting to screw with something else.
Sheesh! And I thought I only had to worry about pop-ups!
