No problem. :)

It was the - #4. Firefox 40 Toobarbutton size fix. that was the important one there. That one would have blown stuff up bigtime if not done. Always worth staying a good few versions ahead on these things.

I have both the Metal Lion Australis Graphite (v2.0.1.6.2.1) and Tiger (v2.0.1.7.2.1) themes installed, with the Graphite theme active. I do not use automatic updates. I am running Firefox v 38.0.5 on Windows 7 x64.

For the past few weeks, when I check for updates, both Metal Lion themes show that updates are available yet after updating them, the updates still show as available.

I have tried uninstalling/re-installing both themes, but the problem won't go away. I could update these themes 20 times a day, and they would still show updates available.

Any help? Also, if please point me to the proper place if this is not where I should post this question. Thank you very much.

It's a bug with the new Signing system that causes some addons to continually show updates. That .1 at the end means they've been "signed" by Mozilla. You can read about it here:

Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Hi there,

You already have the latest updates of these themes (see previous page) and I doubt if I'll be doing another update of these for a few months and when I do the updates will be announced on this thread.

Your problem relates to the 'signing' that the AMO website (where the themes are hosted) that they implemented very recently - https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2015/02 ... xperience/

..that is what the .1 relates to on the end of the version numbers.

However, their signing stuff did not go without incident - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1172696 I am assured that all will be well in due course.

As I'm sure you'll appreciate, I can only provide fit for purpose, fully working themes to AMO and have to leave it to them to fix what they mess up after that.

However, as I said, you already have the latest versions, so at least you don't have to check for updates for a good while.

Hope that helps,

Frank :)

@ Frank and patrickdempsey -- Thank you for your responses. It's really not that big of a deal ... just annoying. ..and, yes, commiseration does help. It's too bad some people just can't leave a good thing alone (i.e., the signing issue you refer to -- about which I have no clue and must read). I guess I'll just have to live with it until they decide to set things right.

While I have your ear, Frank, thank you so much for these themes. Normally, I don't like dark themes because I lose some icons on my toolbar, but both of these are not "crazy dark". It is difficult to see a couple icons, but I can live with it since I like the themes so much. Thank you for your hard work, creativity and for sharing.

Hi there,

You just follow this - viewtopic.php?p=14005643#p14005643 Usually, you would have to create the folder and files yourself, but to make it easier, I've done it for you.

Hope that helps,

Frank :)

absolutely lovely theme...

how do you edit your theme... css, omni.ja, etc. and where is it?

I love the graphite theme and use the tabs on the top version.

Is there anyway to lighten up the graphite darkness a bit?

keep up the excellent work

thanks for the quick response Frank:

I followed your instructions to place a chrome directory into my "profile" with the demo CSS files.... and took a look... looks like generic empty CSS files...

I do website HTML coding a lot and understand CSS, but where are the CSS files for the tiger theme?

By the way, that signing bug mentioned above has now been fixed by Mozilla/AMO, so the signing of these should now all be sorted. Let me know if you find differently.

Hi,

All the toolbar buttons on my themes, both their own and 'non-native', are coded to have the same left/right spacings. As more buttons are added to the Nav bar the addressbar shrinks to accommodate them and if you really fill it up then overflow arrows appear at the right hand side and the extra buttons are in a dropdown box.

From your screenshot, it doesn't look like there is much addressbar shrinking going on there. Try seeing what you get when using the default theme. Possibly one of your extensions playing up (?) or you could try putting those buttons on the Bookmark Bar instead.

Everything is working as it should be at this end and I've been unable to reproduce your problem.

Frank :)
