Hello!

Most of the default theme I could could get to use or depend on the win 8 title bar color by making them and the elements under them transparent. But the under the findbar there's only ".browserContainer" which if I change to transparent also effects the website I view.

I couldn't find a color that matches this here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/doc ... olor_value

PS: I have a similar issue with the navbar dropdown list

I don't know about Win 8+, but I built this theme (for SeaMonkey) which shows the W7 Aero color through the toolbars: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamon ... serprofile

There IS a bug for capturing the Aero color, which I personally solved the maths for 7 months ago, but Mozilla hasn't bothered to patch it.
Tip of the day: If it has "toolbar" in the name, it's crap.

Oh sorry, I didn't read your post close enough. It sounds like what you'll have to do is make a strip below the page content.... basically like a statusbar strip... and have it only visible when the findbar is on.

Ah. Okay. That sounds more difficult than I'm prepared to do.
