About this Add-on
There is no "please port it" or "please add support for it" this time, because the entire add-on eco system changes and the technology behind this kind of add-on gets dropped without replacement.
GlassMyFox enables more AeroGlass effects on the default Firefox skin.
AeroGlass must be enabled in Windows 7/Vista!
Many menus, toolbars and windows are transparent but transparency is not possible everywhere.

- Sometimes Windows doesn't allow dropdown menus to be transparent after installation. To solve this Firefox has to be restarted. Its not a bug of this extension, but how Windows renders "Glass" areas.
Transparent "New Tab"/"about:blank"/"about:newtab"
The "Stylish"-extension has to be installed and enabled (no need to setup there anything), because GMF uses its feature to make those pages transparent.
This addon only works on Windows 7 and Windows Vista, so don't try it on other OSs, it won't work.
Windows 8/10 does not offer AeroGlass by default, but Aero Glass for Windows 8/10 can restore old window transparency.
