which version of firefox are you using? u should b able to install it using http://texturizer.net/firefox/themes/#install as stated on the first post. (im on the official release of 0.8 on WinXP and it works - tho details need to be ironed out)

if there are troubles do a new firefox installation; delete your profile directory and it should work.

I just downloaded this theme and it is very nice. Now, if I could just get someone to make a Pinstripe theme for Thunderbird, I would be all set!!! :)

I've mixed Pinstripe with Charamel and I think it looks kind of cool so far. There are two screenshots <a href="http://www.geocities.com/jyn989/">here</a> if you want to check out the result. Since I'm considering making a theme out of this, I wondering- do I need to get permission to use the Pinstripe icons?

No. We released the icons, the whole theme actually, licensed under the Mozilla Tri-License. So as long as you don't break the license, you can use the icons.

Wow, this looks great! PLease release this...
Another thing, excuse me if this is dumb, but I am very new to customizing Win...in your screenshots, you have very smooth fonts (in the address line and the window title line). Is this a screenshot effect or did you configure it somehow? If so, how did you do it?
Thx and sorry for getting a little offtopic...

At least under Windows XP you can turn on anti-aliasing for fonts. It doesn't look quite as clean as on MacOS X with Quartz, though.

To Smooth Fonts on Windows 2000 or Windows XP:

Go into your display properties (in control pannel) and go to the appearance tab.
There should be a button marked effects. Clicking that button should bring up a window where you can check to smooth the edges of fonts.

On XP it is labeled as "Use the Following method to smooth the edges of screen fonts". That is because there are two engines for smoothing on XP. The recomendation is to use Standard for standard monitors and use ClearType for flat panel displays. (laptops, LCDs, etc)

In the screenshots I'm using a gtk2 build of Firefox in Redhat 9.0.

I installed this theme and I love it, but is there any way to specify how wide the search bar is?

After I installed the theme, the search bar became far too wide for my taste. I apologize in advance if I've missed an obvious way to change the search bar's width.

Right now it looks like this.

macLarge,

Loved your previous work with your aluminum themes, this one cross between Charamel/Pinstripe looks quite promising...

This one looks good - except that the Download Manager looks distorted and ugly. Is a fix in the pipeline?
