I don't have a place to upload a screenshot to.
However, the Options window should look like the images found in http://www.bengoodger.com/software/mb/o ... prefs.html with another section - "Tabs" - between the "Content" section and "Downloads" section.

This is how it should look

But this is how it works using other themes

Pikachu, I downloaded Winstripe Classic 1.1 from your DeviantArt page, and I can conferm that the new Pref window does not work. I have not tried any other themes as of yet.

Thats what I thought it was, the horozontial orientation versus the vertical.

But, considering I just lost EVERY profile I have, its not really on the top of my list to get the themes agian.

Thats because your using 1.0.1 and NOT the trunks build 1.1 (1.0+)

A new options panel landed today on the trunks, not on the 1.0.1 build, and the new options will NOT display correctly with any theme it appears except 'default'.


Ah, my apologies..then I guess smoke doesn't work.

Anyone tried to dl one of my themes, un-jar it, bump the maxversion number in install.rdf, re-jar it, then install? I'm wondering if I need to modify some code for the new prefwindow...

A maxVersion bump won't fix this... the underlying xul has changed quite a bit. I'd suggest using a new profile or backing up your profile if you decide to check out a nightly since it no longer uses chrome.rdf or the overlays and I have no idea if the modifications made to the profile will prevent it from being used with 1.0.

Until 1.0 was released, updating themes was hell because of the constant stream of different nightlies.

When does it make sense to update ones theme to a 1.0+ version? (if that might even be necessary) Is there like a fixed date or something?

If so, what excactly needs to be updated in my theme?

Ok, thanks I have no idea what the code is yet so far. IF someone has the code, please post it on here so I can fix all of my themes for 1.1 before it is out yet

Took "Smoke" theme off the list now also.

Please TEST these before you say they work.

Right now, there are ZERO themes that work with 1.1 nightly builds other than the "stock" one.

The following was done using the Silver Skin theme from http://www.maurobartoccelli.com/silverskin/firefox.htm to get the new prefs panel to work. You should not have Firefox running when doing this.
<ol><li>in your profile directory unzip the silver_skin-2.6.3-fx.jar file located in extensions/{2A10B180-05EF-11D9-8C50-444553540001}/chrome
*note: there was a second copy of this file located in my chrome directory which is not used so be sure you get the right one.</li><li>unzip the classic.jar file which is located in the chrome directory inside your Firefox application directory.</li><li>copy the entire preferences directory from classic/skin/classic/browser/ to the silver_skin-2.6.3-fx/browser/ directory</li><li>copy the classic/skin/classic/global/preferences.css to the silver_skin-2.6.3-fx/global/ directory</li><li>open the silver_skin-2.6.3-fx/global/global.css file and edit the section with
Code: Select all
window,
page,
dialog,
wizard {
so it reads as follows
Code: Select all
window,
page,
dialog,
wizard,
prefwindow {
</li><li>zip all of the files in the silver_skin-2.6.3-fx directory (this is the directory where install.rdf is located and depending on the software you are using you will most like need to be inside of it) and rename it to silver_skin-2.6.3-fx.jar
*note: when compressing the files it is best to use store as the compression method. This allows Firefox to read the files without having to also decompress them which adds some overhead to the process.</li><li>copy silver_skin-2.6.3-fx.jar to the extensions/{2A10B180-05EF-11D9-8C50-444553540001}/chrome directory and overwrite the existing one located there.</li></ol>After all of the steps are complete verify that the theme works and then delete the extensions/{2A10B180-05EF-11D9-8C50-444553540001}/chrome/silver_skin-2.6.3-fx directory which is where you modified the contents.
