Hi,

I was wondering if anyone was considering making a Flock theme.
It looks kind of nice and would be an interesting theme to add to
already huge range of firefox themes.


cheers

Is there a way to make it installable? I copied and edited a install.rdf from another 1.5 theme, it installed but dissappeared on restart?

That's not the way to make it installable. Either do a search on the forums for that, or you can read the chapter I wrote in Hacking Firefox that tells everything you could possibly want to know about theme creation for Firefox...

Tried the quick way, but tabs do not look right.

Hi,

I loaded the flock theme by copying the Flock jar file to the Firefox directory
which basically gives me the look of flock, but the RSS icon which
looks like a newspaper icon is different to the one flock uses.
I was wondering if anyone could tell me how to fix it.


cheers

If this theme looks as good on Firefox as it does in the screenshots of Flock that I've seen, I might be willing to put up an installable version of the theme for others to use.

Can someone post some screenshots of what it looks like in some of the major components of the Firefox UI (main browser, preferences pane, etc.)?

The "star" button is obviously missing. I really think it should be in there integrated with the del.icio.us externion. That way, when you click the star, the page you are currently on goes right to your del.icio.us account.

EDIT: the "blog" button is also missing.

Hi,

Here is my attempt at a Flock theme for Firefox 1.5 Beta 2.
Most of it works fine but i am not happy about the type
on the Tabs as its not centered as in Flock.
If anyone can give me some clues i would
appreciate it.

You can get the same file from http://asteko.linux-sevenler.org/mozilla/flock-0.1.jar
