Version 0.1.6 is now active. Looking for user feedback. I'd like to submit it for Public release but not until it gets a chance for wider testing.

Hey it's cool that you've brought this back, thanks! :D
I used to use it frequently with new profiles that I was testing things on and didn't want to have to install Stylish and Stylish-Custom.

I've created a toolbar button to launch the editor for my own use, but you're (of course) welcome to use it. The keyboard shortcut is good, I just really like toolbar buttons for even quicker access to things.

I haven't coded it for SeaMonkey, but if you want to add the button to your releases I will, and I need to add an entry to the cssloader.dtd.
Also, it's compatible with the latest Firefox nightly.

I can change the icon to just about anything you'd like keeping in mind that it would have to look decent at small sizes.
You should be able to save the link below.

If you're not interested, that's cool too. I just thought that I'd share it.

Thank you Ken! You may have actually been the person to introduce me to this extension originally, but my memory is pretty terrible, so let's just say you are. :D I'll take a look at your work in the next few days. Glad to see your still in the game!

Sorry that you retired the majority of your themes, but whenever I stop by here (mozillaZine forums that is), I see that you're filling that time now by helping someone out and that's wicked cool. Seriously.

If you ever get any spare time and want to help me out with two of my add-ons, feel free to give me a shout.

about:addons Launcher

Need to allow users to choose a different toolbar button icon.
I have an options interface and the graphics, but I don't have any preferences knowledge.

The other one is Page Zoom Buttons and more involved.

I was really conflicted as whether or not to keep all of my themes going, but I'm glad I discontinued most of them. The amount of work in maintaining just two is quite enough and I do actually have a life outside of my Themes and Extensions and messing around on MozillaZine... this is a more productive time-killer than Facebook anyway. :P I'm going on a little hiatus for a few days but I'll look at your extension later in the week. I'm not brilliant at JS, but the folks around here have taught me some good stuff and I do at least understand how to handle preferences!

New update, added a few features, renamed somethings, removed some things. And I forgot about your button Ken! sorry I'll throw together something for the new version.

New to 0.2:

- Added Clear Line button with shortcut Ctrl+L.
- Added ;} button.
- Changed name of Exit button to the more accurate Cancel.
- Changed name of Try It to Preview with shortcut Ctrl+P.
- Removed Revert button (redundant to Cancel).

The most dramatic new feature is Clear Line... either one click or two key-strokes to remove a whole line is much better than the alternative of select delete IMO. The rest of the changes largely revolve around renaming things to be more sensible and getting rid of the Revert button, which has always been redundant to Exit/Cancel anyway. A usability side-note... one can Save the current window without closing it by using the keystroke Ctrl+S, whereas pressing the Save button closes the window.

Since I've been using this more and more I've had some ideas for new features that I'll probably start putting together:

- Ken's long-awaited toolbar-button. Sorry man!
- On Theme Specific tab, a drop-down for selecting which Theme Specific code to edit, other than the current one.
- A tab for Site Specific styles: this would use "@document domain(..)" to contain the styles and they would be displayed as individual blocks with the site domain in a textbox followed by the big CSS input box. Below that would be an "Add Site" button which would generate another set of domain/CSS input boxes at the top of the list. Each set would have it's own "X-to-delete" button. These would be all saved in one preference, but displayed separately by parsing.

All of this would likely make GCSSL at least twice a big. Not sure when I'll get a chance to work on these features... but it's on my mind.

Finally got around to adding a toolbar button. Tested in Firefox, SeaMonkey and even Nightly with Australis.

Just wanted to note that I just tested Generic CSS Loader 2 version 0.2.5 in Firefox 38 running the e10s trial and it appears to work fine for both Chrome and Content and throws no errors. This is good news because I really don't think I'm clever enough to fix it if it had been broken.
