(*) There is a conflict between Windows 7/Vista and Firefox when it comes to glassify dropdown menus on first install. It is not a bug of this extension.
Often but not always some dropdown menus look corrupt after first installation. This can be 'fixed' by doing a browser restart. Because of that I decided to disable this option by default. Users have to set this option manually.

Version 1.0.8.1-signed 22.5 kB Works with Firefox 9.0 and later

Note for upgraders:
In 1.0.8 "Firefox button" and "Toolbar text" got own option groups.
To not mess around with GMF settings (on next update), both option groups won't take their "default" value on upgrade and remain in "off" position. That means FF-button will become "orange" and toolbar texts "black". Users will have to (re)set them manually to "glass" (FF-button) and "white" (toolbar text) in add-ons preferences to have gui like in v1.0.7.
New users are not affected and will have these options automatically set to default on installation.
