MY BELOVED RED CATS Rated 5 out of 5 stars
For close to ten years now, I have tried to hold on to my red cats through every Firefox update, to no avail. I pleaded with the developer as well as with Firefox to come up with a way to save these cuties from annihilation every time there's an update, which is not just once or twice a year, but on a regular basis. Why is this so difficult? I can understand that no one really cares about such trivial matters, but I love these cats. They put me in a good mood even as I tackle the difficult work I must do every day. It's 2017 now and still no one knows how to fix this problem? Firefox asks if I want to be notified when it becomes compatible, but I have yet to receive any such notification. I have to check periodically myself. That's not right. Come on now, surely there is someone clever enough to figure it out.

Please update the latest firefox so that addons can be used
My FAVORITE THEME!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
My only complaint is that Mozilla does so many stupid updates, that Red Fat Lazy Cat apparently can't keep up. I know you probably have other things to do, but I sure miss my cats!
Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This theme is an experience that changed my life. I no longer feel alone. No longer do I sense inner emptiness.
Broken again Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Unable to see add-ons in the bar with red-cats. Used to have both an ad-blocker and privacy badger visible. No longer, and no way to see them. Had to uninstall red cats to get them back.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.0).
Please contact me by email - I need more details to fix the issue. What bar are you referring to? What versions of Cats and Firefox were you using?
Red cats are back! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
After missing them for a few months, I was so delighted to find "Red cats (green flavor)" and "Red cats (blue flavor)" are now both compatible with the latest version of Firefox (45.01). I'm so glad to see you again: I can again feel at home on the web.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (6.0.0). This user has a previous review of this add-on.

This is an EDIT to what I wrote below. Red Cats works perfectly fine on Fx 40 on Windows 8 Pro. I have compatibility checking disabled so I was able to enable it over Fx protests. So far, it is working FINE. So, it is NOT incompatible with Fx 40 but you will have to disable compatibility checking to use it. Fx is sort of messed up with the default theme that was running as I still saw the Red Cats throbber on the default theme and it looked lonely so I decided to try enabling Red Cats and everything is fine.
BEWARE: Incompatible with Fx 40.
I would never have upgraded to Fx 40 had I known Mozilla would disable this theme during the upgrade. Now I have to use Pale Moon and Fx ESR version as the theme works fine on both. I hope there will be an update soon so that this wonderful theme works with current Fx again. I love this theme so much (been using it from Fx 1 I think it was many years ago).
I just wish we had been warned before upgrading as I would not have upgraded. The use of this theme is a lot more important to me than upgrading Fx.
Broken on FF 4.0 (Linux) Rated 5 out of 5 stars
5 starts because I love this theme, but alas since the latest update to Linux FF (4.0) it got disabled. Will this be updated?
Meine Katzen sind wieder da! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Geduld bringt sie zurück, die im Grünen und die im Blauen.
So lange waren sie nicht kompatibel mit den daher galoppierenden Updaates von Firefox.
Jetzt miauen sie wieder! Vielen Dank.

Thank You Thank You for updating this :) I love this theme :)This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.8.0).
Not compatible with latest version Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Shame. Doesn´t work with version 31.5.0.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.0).
Yes you can use Red Cats Green or Blue in Firefox 34 Rated 5 out of 5 stars
You must have 7-zip, which is freeware. If you don't, find it on the web and download and install it. Go to your preferred color Red Cats download link in Firefox Add-ons page. Right-click on the link and click on save link. Save it to your folder choice on your computer. It will save as either a jar or xpi file. Right click on that file and find open archive in the items 7-zip has added to your right-click menu. Click on open archive. Scroll down to the install.rdf file. Right click on it and click edit. Open it in whatever text editor you use - Notepad is fine. Locate where it says min and max versions and change the max version from 32.0 to 34.0. When you click the "X" to close the file in the right-hand top corner it will ask if you want to save the file. Click yes. It will then ask if you want to update the file. Click yes. Now open Firefox add-ons page and click on the gear that allows you to install an add-on from a file. Browse to that file you just updated and click on it. It will install and you will need to restart Firefox and when you do you will have your Red Cats back.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (5.7.0).
Missing the Cats Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I really miss my Red Cats theme and the update seems to be taking longer than usual. Today I read an article about changes coming to FF that made me wonder if I'd ever see my cats again: http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2014/nov/20/firefox-google-yahoo-mozilla
So, why update now when changes are expected? But please, Red Cats creator, please continue with your theme, even after the changes are in effect. Red Cats may be the only reason I'll use FireFox because normally I avoid Yayhoo as a potential link to malware. Here's part of a comment quote from the above link re Yayhoo: "I mention all this, because I have noticed a distinct correlation between Yahoo users and their PCs being rendered practically unusable by malware - so this news worries me as a Firefox user."
I hope Mozilla addresses the changes with it's loyal followers.

5.7.0 fine with ESR 24.6.0 Nightly / Solved problem with Options Rated 5 out of 5 stars
This has been, is, and always will be my favorite Fx theme. My sincere thanks to the dev for what was certainly a Herculean task in getting it to work with the interface whose name we do not mention. :-0
Contrary to what the previous reviewer reported, v. 5.7.0 has not caused any problems whatsoever for me on the ESP 24.6.0esrpre Nightly (Yes, I know 24.6.0 has been released), which I've been using for about five months. It works without a hitch two of my Win 7x64 machines and on three older XP machines.
In fact the only problem I had was with v. 33 Nightly - with the hated Aus .... interface.
The problem was that "Tools-Options" opens in a tab rather than a pop-up window, and this part of the interface was broken.
I saw the nice vertical row of red cats along the left, but nothing could be clicked. The only way to use Options was to temporarily disable Red Cats.
Fortunately, one of the kind contributors to the Fx Forums told me to me to change the pref "browser.preferences.inContent" to false. This was the solution!
Now everything's fine.

I have used and loved Red Cats for years. But it's just not working with Firefox 28 - no matter whose advice I try and follow (thanks to everyone who has offered help in the past!)
Why did Mozilla think this was a good idea?

Потрясающая тема, мягкие и приятные для глаз (моих) сочетания цветов!
Забавный индикатор прогресса в виде рыбок!
Теперь это моя любимая тема (раньше walnut использовал), она более "весёлая"! ^_^
Жаль, что автор "пряничную" тему Curacao не развивает... T_T

Fixing Red Cats after FF upgrade Rated 5 out of 5 stars
A year ago DaveShep posted an incredibly useful fix for when Firefox upgrades and Red Cats stops working:
1. Download Red Cats (Green Flavor) using IE or Chrome
2. Change the extension of the file from .jar to .zip.
3. Open the zip file & copy the install.rdf file out of it.
4. Open the install.rdf file w/ Notepad
5. Look for the line that begins "<em:maxVersion>"
6. Change the version number to 14.* (this will allow it to work w/ all versions of FF 14)
7. Close & save the file
8. Put it back in the zip file.
9. Change the extension back to .jar
10. Go into Firefox's AddOn Manager & install Red Cats (Green Flavor) from file.
My grateful thanks to him for this; I used it every few weeks when FF screwed up Red Cats (amongst other add-ons; their constant upgrade policy really is stupid, because it ruins what used to be the great beauty of FF, its many useful add-ons).
With the upgrade from FF22 to FF23 I've lost Red Cats again, and this time can't get this fix to work.
A query to the developer. Would it be possible for you to set the maxVersion to 99? -- then we wouldn't have this problem every few weeks.
