As far as the theme goes, I really like it. It has a nice contrast (an my girlfriend really likes the snowman). What I don't care for is the Christmas Toolbar because it spoils the coloring into my bookmarks toolbar. It's not likely I'll ever use the toolbar, so I just keep it hidden. That being the case, my preference would be to have the extension downloaded separately.
I do wish there were more Holiday themes from which to choose. This looks okay, but I'd bet it hogs resources.
But even if it doesn't it's way more than I want. . you get 14 buttons in the "Christmas Toolbar" that keep coming back on ...AccuRadio ? Recipes at Epicurious? Deals at Walmart ?? .... shut it off, there it is again in 2-3 clicks ... ridiculous ... !
I'm always reluctant to criticize anyone's work, because I surely cannot begin to do any better. But this is an exception. This is something that goes against everything that Firefox tries to achieve. I threw this kind of Cr@p away when I scrapped the windows browser. This is like some sort of phishing or malware or I don't know what. Although I do know that Mozilla needs to purge all that crap and anything that has that type of template. My two cents..........
I actually have never had a problem with this theme until my firefox browser was updated with the latest version. Now I am not able to use it because of compatibility issues. I did love it so. If the creator would keep updating it and would keep it compatible that would be wonderful.
I uninstalled this because I didn't like my search tool being changed, nor did I like the toolbar which is just advertising and not at all helpful. Not the sort of thing one is used to with Firefox themes; the ulterior purpose spoils everything.
Though the theme looks very nice when installed, and it warns you that the default search engine will be Yahoo!, after uninstalling the theme, it remains Yahoo! and the toolbar that comes with it needs to be uninstalled separately.
The simple yet clearly defined graphics make the chrome a unified area with good rhythm and continuance, and the snowball buttons are a thematically clever device as well. The day/night changeovers are a nice touch too. It's cheery and colorful and has a kind of innocent minimalistic charm. You can easily hide the toolbar if you want. Fun stuff!
Cook theme, I haven't notice change colors as someone else mentioned. The only thing I would add is the skinning the Bookmark toolbar. It is solid gray and if you can't skin it at least make it white so it blends with the skin.
Also, maybe some cool free Christmas sites would be better than your shopping ones :)
I seriously doubt the few glowing reviews of this theme came from any other source than the company that supplied it. Their sole purpose is to get that shopping toolbar installed on as many browsers as possible and I do not doubt for a second that they have their own people writing "reviews" on their behalf.
Just about anyone else will be disgusted by this ad-ware. Don't fall for this scam.
