A Thunderbird bug on MacOSX corrupts scrollbars in some cases, when scrollbar width is set below 15px. There is no workaround for this yet, so it is recommended to use at least 15px for scrollbar width there.
(new) sv-SE locale (thanks to Erik)
(change) improved option windows theme compatibility
-> NewScrollbars styles option window only for default Firefox theme now
(change) many internal changes
(new) experimental support for 'Postbox 3'
-> since this 'software' is based on Thunderbird, NoiaScrollbars should work correctly.
Experimental 'randomize' settings from v1.0.9pre1 did not make it into this version, because they are still too unstable.
If you want to test them, install v1.0.9pre1 from versions page.
- (new) option to disable scrollbar caps
- (new) help button & settings explanations
- (fix) corrected default color code for customizeable scrollbars (v1)
- (fix) scrollbar settings work fine on MacOSX now *
* Using "customizeable scrollbars v1" and reducing scrollbar size value below 15px can corrupt scrollbar thumbs caps on MacOSX only. It is recommended to use the new "option to disable scrollbar caps" in that case.
Feedback: I need some feedback either the issues with disappearing scrollbars are solved with v1.0.8 or not. With v1.0.7 I could reproduce them on Mac OSX Mountain Lion, but they are gone after installing v1.0.8.
Tested v1.0.8 with Windows 7, Windows XP, Linux Mint, Mac OSX Mountain Lion
- (new) dark gradient for 'customizable v2' scrollbars
- (new) size option for 'customizable v1' scrollbars
- (change) reordered prefwindow gui -> six main settings
- (change) blue color highlighter for active setting(s)
- (change) menulist for predefined scrollbars (13 & 17px, light & dark background)
- (change) random setting only for predefined scrollbars
- (change) 'hide scrollbar buttons' option is only visible for supported settings and gets disabled and becomes hidden for unsupported main settings
Note: Because of many internal changes, all settings have to be (re)set after an upgrade from a prior version.
Selecting any settings from 'predefined' or 'customizable' scrollbars settings group will automatically switch to the corresponding 'main scrollbar setting'.
Example: a predefined scrollbar is active and a user changes the 'customizable scrollbars v1' setting 'size' -> 'main scrollbar setting' switches from 'predefined scrollbars' to 'customizable scrollbars v1'.
- fix radius settings for FF/TB 12-14.0a1
- hide scrollbar button option can now be used for predefined scrollbars too
- new option: transparent background for "more customized scrollbar"
The "transparent background" setting for "more customized scrollbar" makes the scrollbar background disappear and the default OS window appearance "styles" scrollbars background. Only on Vista/Win7 with AeroGlass scrollbars background gets full (AeroGlass) transparency.
- Swedish translation (thanks to Erik)
- More customizable scrollbars settings:
-> scrollbar background color
-> scrollbar thumb color
-> scrollbar thumb (hover) color
-> scrollbar buttons color
-> scrollbar buttons (hover) color
-> scrollbar size (1-99px)
-> scrollbar thumb border radius (1-99px)
-> enable/disable color gradient
-> enable/disable scrollbar buttons
- some radio settings became checkbox settings
- transparent scrollbars setting is only visible, if GlassMyFox extension is installed and enabled (->restart FF once after installing/enabling GMF)
High 'border radius' values look all the same ;-)
Color gradient will disable scrollbar button arrows because both are using "background-image" css code for styling the buttons.
- other minor fixes
- fixed issue where sliders (in some extensions) could get disabled when they use same ids like (default Firefox) scrollbars
- new prefwindow gui
- new custom scrollbars
- colorpicker to style custom scrollbars
- textfield to set hex color of custom scrollbars
- new option to pick a random scrollbar on startup
- new option to hide scrollbars (Firefox only)
- new option to make scrollbars transparent, only if...
* ..."GlassMyFox"-extension is used
* (Firefox only, AeroGlass Windows 7 / Vista only)
- removed prefwindow tabs
Reload page after changing options for scrollbars being reloaded.
This extension may work with other themes. Tested only on default theme and Noia 4.
Some settings will disable others automatically, when they cannot be used simultaneously.
Radiosettings "hide scrollbars" and "transparent scrollbars" are hidden on Thunderbird because they are not for TB.
