I don't know if this has been suggested or if you already plan on implementing this later, but it'd be awesome if you could give an option to toggle only the padding, and keep the theme applied to the rest of the browser instead of strictly to inactive tabs and background. It gives a bit more flexibility, since I've seen some themes that wouldn't look as good with this current version of the addon. I can't take points off my rating because of that since it's not exactly a real problem in my opinion.
Other than that, I am truly enjoying this and I'll make sure to spread the word about this addon. Great job!
Thanks for the feedback and I am glad you enjoy the extension!
In regard to your comment, I have another extension called "More or Less Browser Window Padding" which is the padding part without changing Mozilla's default Lightweight Theme behaviour. I figure that some people would want the padding without modifying the theme.
Note: "More or Less Browser Window Padding" is a bit out of date with some of the recent "padding" fixes applied to "Lighterweight Themes for Australis" (ex: it only works on Windows). The preliminary review blocks full reviews for 10 days, plus normal certification time, so I should be able to push the full reviewed new version of that extension out in a week or two.
That said, I will consider adding a toggle in this extension to disable my theme modifications, except the user-defined padding, for users who change themes between some which benefit from the changes and others which don't. My original intent was to allow users to choose between these color schemes: Off (what you suggested), Windows, Mac, and Linux. I am not so sure about that any more, because it is more awkward to apply a Linux color scheme to Mac (and so forth) than I realized, but I should definitely be able to offer "none".
Again, thanks for the feedback! Cheers!
This Add-on is perfect. After watching your YouTube video I learned it will allow me to customize Firefox 29 to support my theme collection.
I have about:config customized so I can choose from far more than the default number of custom lightweight themes and Australis offered some UI changes that improved their visibility along the top but removed the capability to use the customized* toolbars I had made. But your Add-on specifically does the same thing so I can see see them without tabs or search bars on top of them.
Thank you very much for uploading and sharing this wonderful Add-on!
Yes, by padding the tabs, instead of the Address Bar, since the tabs are now locked on top. Any Add-on to reverse this while using the padding places the Address Bar directly under the Title Bar.
The new transparency of the tabs defeats my need for tab placement too. Making your padding work great as it is, adjusting things pixel by pixel, allows me to adjust around each theme according to the creators design, and not a toolbars geometrics.
Thanks for the kind words!
I assume you're talking about the top and right padding options? I am glad you enjoy it. I have also considered (and tried) an option to shrink the toolbars, leaving an even larger gap on the right side of the screen. It has mostly been without success, though, but it is still being considered.
Exactly what I wanted! Thank you!
Thanks for the compliment! I am very glad that you enjoy it!
