I just upgraded FireFox to the latest version, 46. Please make upgrade Red Cats (especially the blue flavor) to be compatible with FF 46. I already miss my feline friends!

Ummm, version 6.0.0 even works with Firefox 49, so I'm not sure what your problem is.

Please try this:
1. On the menu bar, click Tools.
2. On the drop-down menu, click Add-ons.
3. On the Add-ons Manager, click Appearance.
4. Make sure Red Cats is enabled.
5. If it isn't, enable it, and restart Fx.

If this fixes things, please post here. If it doesn't please post here, too, but give more details about the problem. Just saying "it doesn't work" doesn't give us much to work with I'm afraid.

In any case, I guarantee you 100% Red Cats is compatible with Fx 46.

I have the exact same problem, and cats is grayed out with the message that it's incompatible with Firefox 46. This seems to happen fairly often with Firefox. I don't know if there are significant changes to Firefox truly making Cats incompatible or not (or if it's just a 'version number' problem like in the past).

I just wish Firefox would stop making all the changes - I'd rather go back to 45 and have cats (green flavor) than stick with this hideous default look. (Cats is easier on my eyes and I like kitties!)

I already miss my "kitties"! (GRIN!)

If the problem is the version number, you can do the following.

1. Close Firefox. Go to your profile, and find the "extensions" folder. In it, look for {dd30bf68-268a-4815-ad48-8740b774c764}.xpi
Open the .xpi file with WinZip, WinRAR or a similar program.

2. Inside the xpi file, you'll see a file called "install.rdf". What happens next depends on the program you've used to open the xpi file because this will determine how you edit and save the install.rdf file. I'm afraid I can't help you here.

The point is, you have to make sure the changes you make to install.rdf are saved and included in the "updated" xpi file.

3. Anyway, here's what the contents of my install.rdf look like.
Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0"?>

</RDF>


4. This is the line you need to edit.
Code: Select all
<em:maxVersion>50.*</em:maxVersion>


Your file probably contains the number 43.0* or 44.0* rather than 50.0*. In any case, you need to change it to at least 46.0*.

Tip: To avoid having to do it with the next update, I'd change it to 48.0* I've read the add-on supports to three versions after the current version. I can't verify this 100%, but, as you can see, mine is set to 50.0*, and it works fine.

5. Save the edited install.rdf file and make sure that .xpi archive is updated with the changes.

6. Restart Fx.

Please let us know what happens.

What is the file where the version of Firefox is mentioned, I am wondering if the old hacks still work but can't find chrome.css file to edit and maybe it's not used anymore?

Never mind, I fixed my theme with the instructions found on this forum. BTW, you don't need to edit the existing theme, you can edit the installation .jar file easily, I used 7-Zip to access the file directory and edited to make the whole thing work as an installer. Less troublesome for me that way.

I'm back - and sorry for the disappearance! It's real life taking its toll... *sigh*

Here is your fix :mrgreen: for Fx 46 guys: Red Cats (green flavor) 6.0.1b. I'll post the update for 46-49 and both flavors in a week or so.

Many thanks for the update!

However, the bug with Scrapbook extension remains. The new folder button on the Scrapbook toolbar is skinned incorrectly, and becomes a huge rectangle because of incorrectly specified image-rect.

There is a style in extSkins.css:
#sbToolbarNewFolder{-moz-image-region:rect(0 217px 195px 0) !important;}

Which should be replaced with
#sbToolbarNewFolder{ -moz-image-region:rect(0 217px 16px 195px) !important; }

For now I added the style to Stylish extension, and it fixes the issue.

Hi,

thanks for all your work on this extension! There is currently a compatibility issue with Firefox 50. Unfortunately, it does not appear to be simply the version number. If I force FF to run the Red Cats, the menu doesn't work.

Hi Red_Fat_Lazy_Cat,
As noted above, Firefox v50 does not support our beloved cats as yet.

Perhaps when time allows, you will make them available again.
Thanks for your continued support of these wonderful Themes.

Just installed 51.0. Maybe the cats will be compatible with this version. Sure hope so!
