Red Cats (green flavor)

Red Cats Creator is back :-) Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I caught up with Red Cat a few days ago, she was on holiday with no computer access & her hosting service dumped all their websites! She's working on getting everything up & updated. I'll email her about the latest Firfox 15 glitch meanwhile my previously posted fix (now change 14* to 15*) will get your cats back :-)

Red Cats (green flavor)

Red Cats (Green Flavor) for Firefox14+ Rated 5 out of 5 stars

"Not available for Firefox 14.0.1" - I have emailed the developer for this theme, hopefully he/she doesn't know about the problem & also that their website isn't responding!
Meanwhile there is a fix if you have an unzip program installed such as 7Zip that can open & edit the file. Here's how to do it using 7Zip (I've made it as detailed as possible for those who have never dared to do anything like this ;-) )....

Download the red_cats_green_flavor-5.5.2-fx.jar file - (in FF RIGHT-click on "Download" button, click "Save link as...")
RIGHT-click on the file & select "Open archive" from the 7Zip sub-menu
It will open in your default text editor (usually Notepad)
Right-click on the "install.rdf" file name & click on "Edit"
Look for the line "<em:maxVersion>14.0a1</em:maxVersion>"
Change it to <em:maxVersion>14.*</em:maxVersion>
Click on the "File" menu; click "Save"
Click on the "File" menu & click "Exit"
You will get a pop-up window that says:
"File "install.rdf" was modified.
Do you want to update it in the archive?
OK Cancel"
Click OK
Close the 7Zip window
In Firefox go to "Tools -> Add-ons" & click on the tool icon beside the search box
Click on "Install Add-on From File", navigate to the file, double click it & follow the prompts
Restart Firefox & your cats will be back :-)

If the developer doesn't update cats again I am assuming that we'll need to repeat this fix when Firefox goes beyond v.14 so I'm keeping the file in a safe place!
Hope this helps!

Xmarks Sync

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

LIFESAVER! I have been trying for 2 weeks to get Firefox to create a usable backup file (the files it created it couldn't then process!) & to create an html file (it said 'done' but no file was created!). I didn't dare reinstall Firefox in case I lost all my bookmarks. Foxmarks to the rescue! I now have safe backups of my bookmarks & they are synchronized on my laptop. Thank you soooo much Foxmarks :-)

Red Cats (green flavor)

Purrrrrrfect Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I've used this theme since it came out, tried some others but I always come back to my cats! The latest update has made it even better, I keep mousing around my buttons just to see them change ;-)
Thank you so much Red_Fat_Lazy_Cat
