In a little more detail...

I started Firefox theming in 2005 as a way to put something back into the "Open Source Community".
That was glowyred and I got a lot of requests to do it in blue, green, pink, purple etc.
In doing glowyblue and glowygreen I learnt a lot of things that meant I had to deprecate glowyred in favour of a new theme that became glowywine.

Since then I have created glowygold, Arctic Glow and flaminglow.
I've made each of these fairly monotonous for a number of reasons.

I set a goal to have all my themes on Firefox 4 by March 2011 which I have achieved.
I also promised to resume support for Thunderbird and as at 2nd of March 2011 have submitted each for AMO approval.

It has been quite a work load to achieve this but a challenge I have enjoyed.
I hope many of you get similar satisfaction from the results.

At this stage I am cross testing with Firefox and Thunderbird Extensions for issues such as readability.

I have to agree with Ken Saunders.

Infinity

Great texture shading.
Good attention to detail for visibility - especially considering most text is blue - I know how tricky that can be.
