Urethane Light for Firefox 2 by Miamoto Urethane Light for Firefox 2 by Miamoto
URETHANELIGHT
FOR FIREFOX 2 - version 1.0

:faint: Finally, it's to a point where I can release it. I began work on this theme in October, just before Firefox 2 was actually released. Yeah, it's been that long.

I'd love to hear suggestions. The antialiasing on the icons is hand-done; if you see anything that looks choppy or anything, be sure to let me know.

What, this is still for Firefox 2? Yeah, I finally think I've finished the theme for Firefox 2. Now that it's done, I'll be moving on to porting the theme for Firefox 3. :thumbsup:

.// SPECIAL THANKS


~Centurion78 - Came up with the name for the theme, and will be creating a logotype for the theme. :lol:
Aronnax - Gave me tons of tips and helped me get those embossed tab titles.
Ed Hume - Answered all my stoopid questions. :slow:
Cameron Nicks (~Shift-Themes) - More answering of my stoupid questions.

.// INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1. Download the .jar file to a place where you can access it easily, such as the Desktop.
2. In Firefox, drag+drop the .jar file into Tools>Add-ons under the "Themes" tab.
3. The theme should begin to auto-install.
4. Once installation completes, select "Use Theme" and restart Firefox.
5. Browse in sexay style.

.// CHANGELOG

1.0
-Visual update: new tabs, new menus, new throbber, etc

damn you Firefox, breaking useful things all the time! Update please, although I know it's A LOT of work :( There's some ugly skins running around the Themes section in Firefox that work for the newest version, but I want this one!

skin support is epic fail. a wasted opportunity. this skin is dead and burred. and for all we know, so is the designer.

True - free projects like these always depend on how much free time the designer has that he/she can put towards development. And in my case, that's about zero free time haha. I did have a nearly-complete update for this theme for Firefox 3.6 (everything but the general icons were complete), but then came betas of Firefox 4. I dropped the project because I didn't want to release it just as Firefox 3 was dying out, and that's where we are now. Once Firefox 4 is released I may begin to try to put my free time towards making a theme (actually I'd really like to), even though Firefox 4 looks frickin' sweeet for the most part. But that'll probably be around this summer when I get a bit more time on my hands.

Just know that I'm not dead and buried - I'm still alive and kicking, just wrapped up in the relentlessness of life. ;)

You should release the theme for 3.6.x version anyways (if it's so close to be finished).

There were a number of toolbar icons which weren't completed yet, but maybe if I have some time I'll sit down and finish them and release the package for posterity, who knows.

Then made this payable or let us donate for theme. Shame on you Mia, both you did a perfect theme and it was born already dead because of your absent time. I wish you did never create such a beatiful theme. And i hope you won't wait for the fifth version of ff to update.

This is imo already dead, there'll be no ff v3.x version of this theme.
(It's already been 2+ years since there was request about converting it into ff v3...)

That's right, no 3.x version anymore (even though it was nearly complete). There'll most likely be a version for Firefox 4, around this summer.

I'll probably have a reworked version of this for Firefox 4 this summer, since I dropped the 3.6 project when I saw that Fx 4 was in development.

You say you're working on a 3.5 version. 3.6 is out and most themes wont work anymore... So I guess your 3.5 wont either.

Actually, it won't work all that nicely with 3.5. The new version is being designed for 3.6. ;)
