Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I cannot figure out how to reply to your questions in my previous review so I have to make a new post.
Re TGM, we did several tests already in the past (I think on Mozilla Forums) where i posted several screeshots: if you use black as background colour of the TGM bar it has a dusty, opaque look.
The funny thing is that only when your extension is updated, for a second, the bar has a great shiny, deep black look.
Anyway I am aware TGM is dying: some developer should adopt it! ^ ^.
AIOS well maybe you guys could discuss it.
Anyway the big problem is not working inside AIOS but the totally clear drop down menus (until you find out how to get rid of that).
Thanks for the import\export option! :)
Could you send me an email containing your TGM settings exported to a file?
BTW, you can "edit" your post here, if needed. A new rating only replaces your old one. ;-)
Thank you Aris Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Many thanks for your kind and comprehensive answer with explanation. Shame that it is not possible.
There is a Metro+ project on deviantART, that may become what Glass fans want. There is no release date yet.

win8RTM Rated 5 out of 5 stars
on windows 8 RTM i use it for "No border/no background" nightly button and for transparent tabs that get colored in the same color as window borders and taskbar
thats well enough for me for this windows 8 test drive
i'm glad that this add-on is compatible with windows 8
Love it! But... Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Thanks for a great add-on! It brought me back to firefox from using chrome. :) However, I recently updated to version 1.2, and my add-ons, bookmarks, history, etc no longer have transparent backgrounds like they used to :( I'm using All-in-one sidebar, too, so I don't know if it's some sort of conflict, but it was working before. You look to be very active, so I would appreciate some help :(
Update: I installed the dev build 1.2.1 and enabled main window, tabs, library, pref windows/dialogs/etc, dropdown menu (I even restarted), download window, buttons, and toolbar tips. The Downloads window is semi-transparent, but bookmarks, add-ons, history, info and multi-panel are all still non-transparent. I'd like to be able to set all of these to transparent or at least semi-transparent :/
You have to go to your add-ons manager -> GMF -> options and select the FF areas you want to be glassy. Before v1.2 there was one setting for all areas. Now users have more settings to customize FF by enabling/disabling "the glass effect" for major parts of the FF gui.
I suggest to use the latest devbuild from here:
It has more settings for tabs and some other fixes 1.2 doesn't have.
Could you uninstall GMF, restart FF and reinstall GMF? Maybe there is something wrong with some settings.
This is how it looks here, if all main glass settings are enabled:
Can you upload a screenshot too?
Are you using any toolbar add-ons that could have a breaking effect on the GMF gui?
Shinebright skin Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Could you look into supporting the Shine Bright skin? It's working just fine with V4 tab with Pale Moon 12.3 but with Firefox 15 the edges of the tabs aren't getting made transparent. Thanks.
Not quite what I had in mind.. A picture might help.
This appearance is what I'm hoping to maintain.
GMF is for default theme only, but you can use this Stylish css code and make GMFs tabs compatible with Shine Bright skin.
-moz-border-image: none !important;
border-radius: 2px !important;
text-shadow: none !important;
margin-right: 2px !important;
Now almost all of GMFs tab settings should look fine using Shine Bright theme, but I have a question: Why using a theme and GMF together? Making all toolbars transparent doesn't keep much of themes appearance, does it?
I see what you mean, but I cannot fix this. Tabs got corrupted on "Shine Bright" somewhere between FF14 and FF15.
The author needs to fix his tabs for FF15+, because they are acting weird and look broken on FF15+, even without other extensions installed.
Great addon, but v1.2 changed tab color options Rated 5 out of 5 stars
While I find GlassMyFox absolutely suited to my personal preferences, I just updated it to v1.2 today and found myself having to configure the addon from scratch, as it was mentioned on the release notes. So far so good, new options, new configuration window layout, but when I selected my previously used Glass tabs v3, it has now a very dim white text that's hard to read and gives entirely unnecessary eye strain. I selected each Tabs set, and found out that the developer remove the single set I actually liked. Basically, the old Glass tabs v3 has the high enough brightness and contrast of the current 1.2 Glass tabs v1 plus the highlighted active tab.
Please add this configuration back, I'm literally in pain now, as I actively use tabs, and I most certainly don't want to stop using this amazing work of an addon of yours.
EDIT: Basically, the current 1.2 Glass tabs v1 with a bright selected tab rather than a dark selected tab would be perfect.
EDIT2: Just uninstalled 1.2 and reinstalled 1.1.1, in which Glass tabs v3 works as intended. Given that such version has already future compatibility, I will be using it and not updating for the foreseeable future. Do note that this doesn't detract from the overall experience at all, I won't take any other visual style, so congrats for your work once again :)
you are right. I changed some tab settings in v1.2, but not everybody was pleased with them. I already uploaded the next devbuild on 07-22-2012 that restores the tabs from 1.1.1 and adds tabs from v1.2 as seperate settings. Just install v1.2.1pre1 from here https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/160133/glassmyfox-1.2.1pre1-fx-windows.xpi ( https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/glassmyfox/versions/ ) and select the tabs you like.
The changes in v1.2 are mainly for FF15+ where the tabs are on top by default. I wanted them to be more appropriate, but I guess everybody likes to be able to chose, so v1.2.1 will just have more settings. ;-)
GlassMyFox is AWESOME! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I think you deserve an award for this! This is the best add-on ever! Please keep on updating this! AWESOME!
Any possibility on making one for Chrome?
I don't thing it is possible on Google Chrome. Its GUI is not as customizable as Firefox GUI.
Changed with newest Firefox? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Overall a very solid extension, but the latest Firefox seemed to have changed something; None of the 'glass' options give me a look I like, where the current tab is 'brighter' than the rest. Either the current tab blends in or is darker, which is counter intuitive. If I could get the exact inverse of "Glass Tab v3" that'd be perfect.
Edit: Dunno what all you changed with this new version, because now "Glass Tabs v2" is absolutely perfect. Thank you!
I changed tabs back to the old ones from v1.1.x and added the newer ones from v1.2 as own selectable tabs. There are now two versions of 'Glass Tab v3', normal and inv., selectable on add-ons manager, but I think the 'normal v3' is now what you are looking for. Can you give me some feedback?
Option Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Please add again "Glass Tabs" optionThis review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.2).
Go to the settings (Add-ons->Extensions->GlassMyFox->Options) and select your glass tabs from the corresponding setting. I haven't removed it. ;-)

Excelente hasta el momento ningún problema con la estabilidad, la apariencia mejoró enormemente.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1).
OK but only a simple request Rated 5 out of 5 stars
very beautiful but a little remark: please give a different contrast to the tab you are reading on top otherwise it's indistinguishable from the others opened in background making it difficult to understand on which tab you need to click if you you want close or push on top. THANKS!
... As suggested I try Glass v3 and I like it. Is just what I wish! Thanks again and sorry... Now is pratically perfect.
Have you already tried all tab variations GMF offers? Add-on manager -> GlassMyFox -> Options?

I made the Firefox icon small and blue, it made Firefox feel like a completely different browser!
