Red Cats (green flavor)

Thanks to Reviewer OldTabby Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I got my favorite theme, Red Cats - Green Flavor, to work with my updated Firefox browser. I had delayed upgrading from 13.x, but once I saw OldTabby's excellent instructions for changing the maxVersion, I upgraded. I have WinXP, and I was able to use the "Install Add-on from file" function with no problem using the jar file. I restarted FF, and I had my red cats back. I love this theme and have used it for years on all of my computers, and Firefox just wouldn't be Firefox without it!

NoRedirect

Good tool so far! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

When I visit family, I'm very annoyed to find any 404 errors suddenly leading to their ISP's (inferior) search page -- and when I was searching from the address bar, their ISP hijacked that, too, so I had to go in and change my about:config keyurl back to google -- but I like to see the 404 errors and I like to be able to "correct" them if possible -- especially if it's because the site mistyped the URL in a link, for ex., by leaving out the colon or putting the http:// part in twice -- and without having to go back to the original page to see what the error was.

My family's ISP wasn't listed, but I was able to get NoRedirect to work easily by deliberately typing in a bad URL and copying the first part of the URL. I then substituted "(?:[^/]+\.)?" for the first element of the URL, since it was obviously one of a set of servers used by Frontier (oops! did I just name the naughty ISP?), and now when I type in a bad URL, I get a nice 404 message, just like I expect. Maybe I'm just old-fashioned, but I really don't like ISP's hijacking my browser like that. *grumpy face*

NoRedirect is easy to use and configure, but I think it should come with some kind of directions. I'm pretty good at figuring this stuff out (I had no idea what PCRE was before using this extension, and still don't really know), but I'm sure that many users would be well-served by a few user-friendly instructions on how to add an ISP that is not already on the list.

Thanks for the useful tool!

I love my Green Cats! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you so much for updating this theme for 4.0. I was distressed when I upgraded firefox a few days ago and lost my favorite theme, so I was thrilled when I came back today and discovered you had updated, and you even added a few new little features, like the nice icon for Ad Block Plus.
This is a nice clean, cute, friendly theme with a lovely shade of green -- not too loud -- sweet when I look at the menu bars, but not distracting when I'm reading a webpage. And I do like my cats! :-)
