Firefox update frenzy Rated 5 out of 5 stars

The foxscape theme is a thing of beauty. Once Michael had a chance to update it for FF 18, I will hold off updating Firefox for a while.

This frenzy to bring out new versions isn't doing anyone any good, it just shows pretenses. Despite the race, FF market share has dropped, so what does that tell us?

We should also appreciate Michael's difficulties in developing the theme: lack of communication by Firefox, undue approval times, etc.

Excellent. I use the classic theme in Windows 7 and this vintage skin goes along very well with it.

Hi! very good ol' theme. Thanks to keep it updated.

However, starting from firefox 12, the new "about:newtab" page is available, but not correctly styled in foxscape. To be honnest, as there is no support at all, the page is simply ugly. A quick fix is to just copy from omni.jar the folder browser/newtab in your theme to keep the default theme. Please take a look at the new newTab.css file to see how to well integrate it with foxscape.

Thanks!

Netscape 1.1 was my first browser experience...somehow despite all the advances in browsers today, there is something about the simplicity of that browser that I still miss. This addon is a great way to reminisce those old days...

NICE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

On Classic theme of Windows (i.e. not using MSstyles), it acts like Firefox 4's default, except with different icons.
Though Firefox CAN have a GUI layout like Netscape/Firefox3, I prefer it when tabs are above URLbar (it's more logical).

I love this so much, I even switched back to Firefox 3.6.3.

Think you can make a compatible version for Seamonkey? Because Seamonkey still (vaguely) looks like Netscape.

This is the best theme, it brings back memories of when I started running Red Hat 6.0 back in 1999. Please keep this one going, thanks!

Hey, thanks, I always missed the Netscape browser because it brings good memories of the beginning of the internet. I always loved the throbber. Thanks for making it and I hope you keep it updated.

It's simple and makes what it propose to do. The browser looks like exactly Netscape 3, where pages was so ugly and connection was too slow. I like it and continues to use it.

Please add a code to support MacOSX, it's easy: you just add custom scrollbars as it's done in iPox, Whitehart, Silvermel, Stratini, Rein, or in Smoke or FennecFox (not from default theme).

MacOSX (and Linux) support

Thanks for the tip. I was already looking into fixing this issue. It is just that I have no way to test any changes to see if they work properly. Have a look at my web page to see a transcript of what happened when I tried to get help with this the first time:
http://foxscape.net/tddtranscript.htm
I may have found someone who can help with testing on Mac OSX and Linux.
I was recently looking at a theme not mentioned in your list that seems to have a simple solution. I will have a look at the ones you mentioned if I have difficulty with the present one.

Thanks,
Michael
