Weird one, eh? Still, it's fixed, who cares why it was breaking?

As an aside, far too many themers in the past have grown old well before their time in the mistaken belief that you have to understand the default theme, read bugs and everything else before you can fix anything. I never have and never attempt to, I just look at what's wrong and fix it using the simplest code appropriate and don't give a damn about understanding anything.

UPDATES -


Metal Lion Silver Sea Monkey

Version ~ 2.0.5.2


Compatibility - SeaMonkey 2.1a1 - 2.49


- Thunderbird 34 - 52

Metal Lion Sea Monkey

Version ~ 2.0.4.0

Compatibility - SeaMonkey 2.1a1 - 2.49


-Thunderbird 34 - 52


Image

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamon ... ea-monkey/


CHANGELOG -


#1. Content scrollbars coding now contained within the theme, meaning small extra extension is no longer needed.

Exactly the same coding as previous version, I've just moved stuff around now that 'override' is accepted with theme chrome.manifest, so that everything is now completely unrelated to Firefox.

Before I forget ....some people, including me, don't like the red/yellow security warning in the themes. However, to get through review I need to use something that catches the user's attention.

This sorts it -

Code: Select all
/*Franks Notification Bar Colour Fix...*/
#msgNotificationBar,.notification-inner  {
   background:#64992C !important;
   color: #000000 !important;}

Keep this next tip quiet, otherwise Pat will murder me. If you like everything about the Sea Fox ext. apart from it using an old style Addons Manager, then you can fix that.

Help>Troubleshoot Info> Open whatever> extensions>seafox@extensions.moz.xpi>chrome>content> and delete extensions.xul .Restart and you're done.

Easier to do than keep on trying to convince 'someone' that the Addons Manager stuff should be down as an option in Prefs. ;)

I noticed that the grey padlock in the urlbar for a blue https site has, er, vanished. Fix will be in next update but, meantime, this fixes it -

Code: Select all
#identity-box[level="high"]:not([label]) > #identity-icon-lock {
    filter: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/extensions.svg#greyscale") !important;
   filter:  grayscale(1) !important;}

A nice bonus for SeaFox users, who are also using my themes -

Code: Select all
/*Franks SeaFox Findbar Fix for SM 2.48+ versions with Metal Lion styling added...*/
   
 findbar {
     -moz-binding: url("chrome://communicator/content/bindings/findbar.xml#findbar") !important;}

    #FindToolbar {
       -moz-box-ordinal-group: 10 !important;}

    #appcontent {
    -moz-box-direction: normal!important;}

.findbar-closebutton {
       -moz-box-ordinal-group: 0 !important;}

.findbar-find-previous,
.findbar-find-next { -moz-appearance: none !important;
   min-width: 75px !important;
   height: 18px !important;
padding: 0px !important;
margin-top: 0px !important;
margin-bottom: 0px !important;
     color: #000000 !important;
   background: linear-gradient(
      #ffffff 0%,
      #ebebeb 50%,
      #dbdbdb 50%,
      #b5b5b5) !important;
   border-radius: 15px !important;
   border: 1px solid #929293 !important;
}

.findbar-find-previous:focus,.findbar-find-previous[default="true"],.findbar-find-previous:hover:active,
.findbar-find-previous[open="true"],.findbar-find-previous[checked="true"] {
     -moz-appearance: none !important;
   color: #000000 !important;
   background: linear-gradient(
      to top,
      #ffffff 0%,
      #ebebeb 50%,
      #dbdbdb 50%,
      #b5b5b5) !important;
   border-radius: 15px !important;
   border: none  !important;
   text-decoration: underline !important;
}      

.findbar-find-previous > .toolbarbutton-icon,
.findbar-find-next > .toolbarbutton-icon {
  margin-left: 2px !important;
}

.findbar-find-previous .toolbarbutton-text { display: none !important; }
.findbar-find-previous:after { content: "Previous" !important;
                        display: -moz-box !important;
                        -moz-padding-start: 1px !important;
}

.findbar-find-next .toolbarbutton-text { display: none !important; }
.findbar-find-next:after { content: "Next" !important;
                        display: -moz-box !important;
                        -moz-padding-start: 8px !important;
}

.findbar-find-previous[disabled="true"]:after,
.findbar-find-next[disabled="true"]:after {
  opacity: .6 !important;
}


Incidentally, as you know, these themes theme T/Bird as well as SM. Trouble is, I don't actually use T/Bird myself. I know SM is looking fine with the themes, but it's probably about time I checked them on the latest T/Bird versions, so I'll do that soon.

No one has mentioned any problems, but you never know till you check it yourself. Things get very busy with other things every summer with me, so, er, the theming stuff always takes a back seat then.

In other news, I'm very pleased with AK2 and it was done to a proper Release standard, even though I'm not going to do a general public release on it (as I mentioned before, if I know you then just ask for it if you want it). I'm going to do a similar conversion job on ML BMV and then that'll be my lot on this stuff.

Indeed, looks good with AK2 ; that's what I like about Stylish, one can turn things on and off and see the difference. :)

Yeah, I can understand that.

When I'm working, I'm working directly on editing the theme .jar within the extensions folder and so - make change, hit Save on Programmer's Notepad (which has limitless Undos), hit Update in WinRar and then hit my Restart button on the browser, it restarts and the change appears. If I'm fine tuning a position, that process can happen well over 50 times an hour and is now a totally automatic progress and my hands are a blur on the keyboard.

Using userChrome.css is the same, but without the Update step, so it's easier for me to use/adapt to than Stylish.

A simple userChrome.css snippet for SeaMonkey users -

Code: Select all
 /* Franks SM sidebar on right...*/
#main-window > hbox {
  direction: rtl !important;
}

 /* stop the children inheriting this change*/
#main-window > hbox > vbox {
  direction: ltr !important;}

I'm sure I've already done this, but maybe that was in AK2. Anyway, I was/am using ML Sea Monkey and noticed that the downloads notification is huge by default, this fixes it -

Code: Select all
/*Franks smaller download notification...*/
#alertImage {
  width: 20px !important;
  height: 20px !important; }
