Noia 4 Version History

88 versions

Be careful with old versions!

These versions are displayed for reference and testing purposes. You should always use the latest version of an add-on.

Version 2.0.0 1.4 MB Works with Firefox 29.0a1 - 33.0

By releasing this one I just wanted to say thank you to all Noia4 users who wrote me.
It does not mean I'm back on (N4) theming.
This version is almost equal to what Noia4 was in January where server issues started to prevent me from uploading new releases.

The version is just a compatibility update for Fx29+, has less options and might not always works as expected, but all basic theme configurator settings are still there.
I know there are many minor some major glitches in this release (please do not report them), but things like that happen when not working on a theme for over five month.

If you need more configuration, try my Classic Theme Restorer add-on. It offers some additional tweaks and features Noia 4 does not provide by itselft.

Do not install this build on pre-Australis Firefox versions. There is nothing new compared to v1.8.8 except Australis support and less options.


First compatibility release for Australis UI based on Noia 4 v1.8.8.

Some options got removed, because they do not work with Australis UI.

Go to theme manager and reset settings to default by using the button on bottom left. This will disable some options that are not or not yet compatible, but were enabled on older Fx builds.

Do not report bugs or errors. I know there are many. This is just an early release for those who like to use experimental builds.

Australis will land in Firefox 29 final, so there is a lot of time where things can change.

Mozilla blocks Noia4 from being uploaded to AMO (some server issues other non-Noia themes don't have, funny, isn't it?), so new releases can't be uploaded the traditional way.
And nobody wants to review Noia4 anymore. v1.7.8 is almost a month now (02-04-13) in the queue, so I'm sorry, but I cannot do anything about that. Mozilla whants to get rig of real themes to favor Personas, so if you want to blame somebody for how your favorite theme is treated, write emails to Mozilla/AMO team.
