Finally, Le Breeze theme is available to Firefox 1.5 and Thunderbird 1.5:

Image

You can install it from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/439
Please note: I'm not going to maintain this version for 1.5. This is just a version to whoever want this theme for 1.5 versions and still didn't update to Firefox 2.0.

I'm still working on a version for Firefox 2.0, it might take me some time.
Have fun with the current version :)

Nice to hear that.

I hope I'll release it this week.
All I have left is putting some new icons, once they'll be done.


If anyone thinks he is capable of making a "Le Breeze"-like icons, let me know. I can't handle graphic things...

I wouldn't be confident of making a good job but I could give it a try. What icons do you need, what specifications?

I contacted 2 of the original developers of Le Breeze for help on this subject. I hope they'll have the time to do it, because they're result will probably be the best.

Anyway, if someone else think he\she can do a good work, the missing icons are feeds+security under the options dialog, and the viewButtons.png file.

That's it for now.

Ok guys, I need your help!
I'm working now on a new look for the options dialog tabs (main, tabs, content...). Here's the current look:

thanks to imageshack.us

As you can see, I'm not going to use icons for that. For now, I'm not 100% ok with this look. If anyone has a suggestion regarding this, please post it here :)

Thanks.

Hmm... :-k ...tough call, if you're not using icons. Need to get some life in there, I reckon.

Maybe try this - Change the Pane selector background from #FFFFFF to something like, #7B7B7B. Then do the inactive text color there to #E6E6E6 (which is your main colour on other stuff.)

Now, see that double border effect that you have around the OK button there? Some of your toolbar buttons (don't forget, I don't know this theme) have a similar double border effect i.e. Stop, Back, etc.

So...tie the whole thing together by doing that double border effect around the edge of the whole Options Window itself.

Reckon that lot might do it and, as I know you are not into graphics, all done with css.

Hmm... Here's how it looks like:

I think it's not bad at all :)

Though, I'm not sure what is your idea for the double border..

Looks great to me Ogirtd! :)

Is the dark grey on the inactive tabs area the same grey that's on the main windows tab bar? If it is it will ft in perfect if not then it's not a big deal, still looks great. :)

The only nitpick I have is the top padding on the active tab doesn't look enough. That is to say the word "main" is too high up toward the top border of the tab. Would look better inline with the inactive words. It's not hugely important though.

Thanks jasidog and Frank :)

jasidog, about the selected tab padding - this issue already been fixed right after I posted this screenshot, so I'm sure you'll like it.
As for the background color, I'll see if #CCC would work fine. If not, I'll return the the current color.

Frank, thanks again for the tip.

Stay tuned, LeBreeze is comming!

I was basing my ideas on your original screenshot (plus, I had just got up! + hangover)

Now that I can see your Options window in it's Windows OS frame - scrub the double border idea, that looks fine as it is.

Wayhey! :D

Thank you very much for all your hard work Ogirtd. Seems like an age since I was last able to use Le Breeze, very much looking forward to it. :)

Thanks also for the TB version.
