I've done a very quick extension for use with the Metal Lion Sea Monkey theme -

Image

Essentially, it turns the toolbar buttons gold. It's designed to work only on the SM browser side and not on the Email side of SM or on T/Bird at all. The usual red and green effects on the Stop/Reload buttons are retained. The extension does actually work with any theme, but the gold effect doesn't look any good on anything other than the dark background of ML SM...which is what it was made for.

So, for those occasions when you'd like a bit more colour in ML SM, I give you (caution: live install link) - http://franklion.co.uk/GEN-LINKS/Gold-ML-SM-1.5.7.xpi

I'll be doing a very minor update on these in a few weeks time, so if you have feature/style requests that you think would have universal appeal then now is the time to let me know.

Hmm, I confess I haven't done any work on these in 6 months, plus I'm on a new PC with Win7 in the last few months.

Anyway, I hadn't got around to putting Thunderbird on this and the SM stuff seems OK, so there wasn't a rush? Wrong.

Although my non-public AK2 works fine on T/Bird 52.9, my ML SM and ML Silver SM themes have dropped back to having smaller toolbar buttons...again!...I fixed this damn thing back in T/Bird 45 when default insisted on using 18x18px toolbar buttons. Did a huge wad of code that overrode that.

But, recently that's broke again (don't ask me when) luckily as AK2 was OK, it was just a question of what that was doing differently. The answer was a fix I added to AK2. Tested it in ML SM and all is fine again.

Sometime I'll do an update, but I might well have a lot of trouble getting AMO to accept the update. They are 'difficult' these days. So, if that is the case, I'll host the updates on my own site. Meantime, here's the fix if you want to add it to the frank.css in the themes -

Code: Select all
/*Win10 T/Bird Fix?...Put at head !!!...*/

.toolbarbutton-menubutton-button > .toolbarbutton-icon,
.toolbarbutton-1 .toolbarbutton-icon {
     width: unset !important;
     height: unset !important;
   min-width: 18px !important;
   min-height: 18px !important;
}

toolbarbutton[id^="custombuttons-button"] > .toolbarbutton-icon {
   min-width: 16px !important;
   min-height: 16px !important;
}


Note - when it says at the head, it means right at the head of the code on the next line under the namespace line. That is important as the fix will not work otherwise! Tricky stuff this theme coding lark. ;)

Announcement -

I'm stopping the Thunderbird side of these themes with Thunderbird version 60. The SeaMonkey side is completely unaffected by this.

#1. There is a bug in Thunderbird 60 (at the moment anyway) that means that a Complete Theme has to be installed and then re-installed three times before it finally shows up as it should. When it does finally deign to install these themes, then they are working fine, exactly as they should.

#2. I cannot get the DOM Inspector to work in Thunderbird 60. As you may know, although I can sometimes do without it for simple stuff, it is actually a pretty essential tool in the making of themes, i.e. No DOMi = No Themes.

#3. Of course, as is the way with the world, #1 above to some users is obviously all my fault and they don't bother to contact my Support side to ask what's going on. Instead they post indignant 'reviews' that my themes don't work for all to see.

As you know, like every other theme writer, I do this stuff in my free time and don't need this and guess what? - now I've made sure that they really will never work again in Thunderbird after version 60.

DOMi will probably never work again in any 59+ Gecko. Our mozilla "friends" just gutted the needed apis and no one left with the knowledge and time to fix this. You can inspect XUL with the the dev tools in TB. There is currently a bug in SeaMonkey 2.57 which prevents this.

If you want to do an early test with 2.57 try
https://www.wg9s.com/comm-257/

Browser works but not much more right now.

The TB devs have their hand full. Still trying to fix the tree which I personally think will be futile before the next ESR arrives. And sancus did a good job with the add-ons site. I am very grateful they did this. You might just want to contact them for any bad reviews.

That's OK, because of the work I did on T/Bird 58 a while back, T/Bird 60 is fine with my stuff and so is a good place to stop. Go past that and I'll be stuck with their hopeless Browser Toolbox thing - OK for the odd ID, but not for doing my stuff.

Thanks, seems generally OK, small breakings but nothing major. Browser Toolbox is working on 2.57, but I think so would DOMi so I'd use that instead.

2.57 does seem to have a similar theme install bug to T/Bird though - theme installed OK, switch to default and back and theme vanishes. Re-install theme and back it comes.

I did mention this problem on T/Bird Builds, but I think they would already be aware of it? -

Install it again. Somehow on newer TB versions it doesn't apply on the first time. Maybe because of the FX removal work of the legacy extensions.

browser toolbox works but you can't inspect xul content in SM.

moz-border is gone. This mostly affects the modern theme. There are preliminary patches in this release but they still need work.

If we can't get something to work for the final we will probably backout s**tty mozilla changes in a SeaMonkey release branch. The Gecko tree turned into junk after 2,57 and we need to evaluate other options or shut down anyway.

> the end of Seamonkey in other words?

yes if it an't be made to work and none of the Gecko forks take off. Firefox is on the path to oblivion too unless you believe the mumbo jumbo about everything be fine. User stats show differently. We will probably know in 2-3 years what happens with all Gecko products.
