Aquatint by thecrayolakidd Aquatint by thecrayolakidd
******6/11/05****
German & French translations added for menu-icons. Here's the userChrome add-in:
@import url("chrome://global/skin/extras/menu-icons-german.css");
@import url("chrome://global/skin/extras/menu-icons-french.css");

Cheers muchly to Marcel Dorrer for the translations. Am looking for people able to provide translations in other languages - please contact me if interested :)

******29/10/05******
A couple of fixes made to cater for TabMixPlus (esp the added tab-close button) and the All-in-One sidebar extension


******26/10/05******
a second tab option added, allowing for an alternate (blue) selected tab. Add the following to your userChrome (above namespace) to enable:

@import url("chrome://global/skin/custom/alt_selected/tabbox.css");




****1/10/05***
Fixes made to cater for Download manager in 1.5 and 1.6a1. Support added for Wed Developer extension


***29/9/05***
For those of you who enjoy the cutemenus extensions, a whole tonne of menuicons have been added (as a userChrome option, so as not to effect those who DON'T use them)

Add the following to your user chrome (above the namespace):
@import url("chrome://global/skin/extras/extension-icons.css");

For those not familiar with editing the userChrome, an easy option is to install the ChromEdit extension, available from here (bumped so as will install on ALL versions):

Aquatint just got a facelift...gone are the blue stars so many people complained about - infact the entire bookmarks folder & panel is now a little different.
Have added full theme support for Sage (will be doing similar for scrapbook over the next day or so)
Problems with the alternate tabs and restoration of favcons have been resolved, as has the placement of the security icon in 1.06/7 versions of Firefox.



********************************************************



Added fix for the Linux filepicker box....please email me (with screenshots) if is still not displaying correctly - not having access to a liux-based machine myself makes it difficult to test :)


Aquatint has been modified to allow for use on the latest nightly builds. Still works fine however on the official releases :)


********************************************************

Although a long-time user of Photoshop and the likes, this is my first attempt at "skinning" beyond the XP interface...so be kind. Have gone for a pinstripe look with lots of blue-glass and aqua-style buttons. Any feedback muchly appreciated.

This is a full theme however, so if you are after a lite skin, this may not be for you.

*****************************************************************************************************************************

userChrome modifications:

These have been posted after some peoples complaints about the lack of those ugly little favicons (some people are just never happy, lol)

All these entries must be pasted AFTER the namespace:

/* will restore favicons to tabs */

.tab-icon {
opacity: 1.0 !important;
}

/* Removal of (current) Toolbar Bookmark display */

toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[livemark="true"],
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item[container="true"],
toolbarbutton.bookmark-item {
margin: 0;
min-width: 0;
max-width: 100px;
padding: 0px 0px;
background: none !important;
background-position: left;
}

/* used with above, will restore bookmark toolbar to normal, allowing the displayof favicons (site icons) */

.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
-moz-opacity: 1.0 !important;
}



To change to a plainer style of tabs, add the following ABOVE the namespace entry:

@import url("chrome://global/skin/custom/tabbox.css");

***** IMPORTANT *******

If downloading version 1.2.8 onwards and using the tab favicon restore option, please use the newly adjusted option posted above. Adjustments were made so that the same command works for either tab style rather that needing one for each :)


*** support now added for search-button extension :) ***

if possible could the search container be done differently so that the resizesearchbox extension (dragtotab.mozdev.org/resizesearchbox) grippy is to the left of the rounded border instead of between the left border and the rest of the searchbar

oh nvmd, it works fine :)

but do you know what to add to userChrome.css so that the menu separators show an actual line instead of the gap you use?
Reply
:iconthecrayolakidd:
thecrayolakidd Featured By Owner Dec 12, 2005
Sure...add the following below the namespace entry:

toolbarseparator {
margin : 2px 0.2em;
border-right : 1px solid ThreeDHighlight;
border-left : 1px solid ThreeDShadow;
width : 2px;
}

Can change the colour values "ThreeDHighlight" and ThreeDShadow", to a specific colour if you chose - best to use hex values though...look in the develer's comment for BlackJapan for idea of how to go about that :)

The SessionSaver extension "snapback tab" and "snapback window" features don't show up (Tools>Snapback Tab/Window) when using this theme. It might just be on my computer, but can you have a look? Thanks.

The text highlights for the drop down menu (File, Edit, View, etc) are so light that I cannot tell what is being selected.

Can I change this? I am using iFox for now until I change this. It is rather hard on the eyes. I am a video/film editor and I can't make my eyes work hard that they already do.

Is an easy fix, but would be much easier if you email me...the code that needs to be added to the userChrome is fairly long (will replace the background image with a solid (darker) colour) and that way i can also send you a bumped version of the chromEdit extension to make life much easier

that really is a beautiful theme
but since I updated Firefox to 1.5 and your theme as well I won't see any webpages, just the themes background, why? :(

reinstalling firefox and the theme doesn't have an effect

that might be worth a try, if only firefox.exe -p worked as supposed :P

ah nevermind about my bitching firefox, the theme works when I install version 1.4.x of it... strange :confused: but well..

thanks for your advices though :D

:iconthecrayolakidd:
thecrayolakidd Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2005
My first suggestion would be to set up a clean profile (which ppl should be correctly being advised to do when upgrading to 1.5)...is likely something has corrupted in the udate, and uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox won't fix that as your profiles don't get removed during that process. If on windows, go to the start panel and open the "run" console...type in Firefox.exe -p this will open the profiles manager...create a clean profile and reinslall the theme..should work without hassles.

You can easilly import your bookmarks from the old profile via the options panel, but will give you the chance to ensure all you extensions are up-to-date...as a clue on that one, is often a good idea to have a look over at mozdev.org, as often updates are posted there long before they are available over at MozUpdate.

great theme. a few suggestions to make the theme better, though i'm not sure how possible these are. first, new icons for the cutemenu for flashgot - the orange looks really out of place and with flashgot being the most popular extension should be a necessity (if it is possible to do) for any theme in my opinion. second, theming for Image Toolbar extension - if you haven't tried it, i recommend it. lastly, an option for a darker shade of blue - for matching darker oriented themes. that's my two cents. you've come as close to my ideal theme as any i've ever seen.

Oh btw... When I try to create a new custom toolbar, it display a thin horizontal line, as if empty toolbars had no minimum height by default (when no height is forced by and inner element like a button). Which makes the creation of custom toolabrs unavailable. All else mattering, thanks again for this magnificient work!

:iconthecrayolakidd:
thecrayolakidd Featured By Owner Nov 16, 2005
just tried....you can still add new toolbars. I've tried under the default the theme as well, and found even there it tends to be almost surgical...is possible but can take a few shots to hit the right spot. I still might set the minimum slightly higher tho just to make things a little easier - cheers for the heads up :)

As for the All-in-One sidebar, am running in fullscreen at the moments, and just opened the panel without issue, so to be honest am not sure what the prob is there - you may even have something that is conflicting, but without actually being able to re-create the prob have no way of knowing

Excellent, the best skin available for Firefox! It also works flawlessly with All-In-One Sidebar/Sidepanel, if only for one little thing: in maximized or full screen mode, the left sidebar grippy not only disapears, but is also unavailable (other skins leave a phantom grippy, meaning that you can click on the left most side of the screen and there you go, the grippy is there, just invisble).

Thanks a lot for my everyday skin! :-)

Still unable to see any result with any version of SEL (even the special version you sent me)... so we'll see what happens with future versions.

In the meanwhile, is there any way to make your theme such that it could be in other colors? I'm thinking a green or orange version of this skin would be very attractive. I know with Opera skins, you can change the color of the skin with a simple menu option - don't know if that's possible with FF skins or not but it would be really cool if it is.

Unfortunately, if you are refering to button colour, it would mean building a whole new set of buttons, and as I'm working on a new theme, this just isn't going to happen. Background colur I could do, but that is about it - sorry :)

I love this theme, but the latest version (1.4.7) is doing some odd things with the all-in-one sidebar extension. The icons are looking a bit mashed and the icon bar gets resized along with the sidebar... It's kinda hard to explain. If you have time maybe you could install that extension so you see what I mean.

The last version didn't do this. Is there any way to either go back a version, or add something to userchrome.css to fix this?

Just updated - have no idea why it was giving you grief, but have tested and all seems fine now - have replaced the background for the toolbar while I was at it :)

Have tried the extension before and never liked - found it easier to open the window or sidebar as I need it and the shut afterwards....much cleaner that way :)

Your theme Aquatint is most excellent! It's nice and clean and simple-looking (I know how difficult a "simple" look can be to achieve).

I am having one problem, though. The theme (v1.3.7) doesn't seem to work well with the extension "Slim Extension List" (v0.1). Although there are no real problems with the display, the items in the extension list are not as slimmed as they should be with that extension active, but are still fairly large. I can live with this, but it defeats the purpose of this extension, which is to reduce the size of the extension list.

Any chance that a tweak might be forthcoming to work better with this extension?

:iconthecrayolakidd:
thecrayolakidd Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2005
Have actually done some work with the developer of that extension a few days ago to fix the problem...have you checked to see if you have the latest version (not sure if he has released it yet, but won't be too far off if he hasn't)...that should solveyour problem :)

beerslayer Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2005
Thanks for the reply. It seems from your response that the problem is in Slim Extension List (SEL), not in your theme. Unfortunately, I wish the solution were as easy as upgrading SEL... :(

SEL is available from the developer's site in two versions: 0.1 and 0.3.1. The 0.1 version is probably pretty old, but it is the only version available that works with FF 1.0.x (I have 1.0.7). The 0.3.1 version may well have the fix you describe, but it refuses to install, claiming it requires FF 1.4 or higher, and I'm not adventuresome enough to put an early beta version of my primary browser on this particular machine.

So it appears that I'm stuck with SEL version 0.1, which I'm guessing will probably never be updated to include the fix you mention.

thecrayolakidd Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2005
Ah.....the newer version will work just fine on earlier versions of Firefox - I'd say the developer forgot to remod after we fixed the issues, lol. If you are not sure how to adjust the install, email me and I can send a modded version your way :)
Reply
:iconbeerslayer:
beerslayer Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2005
OK, for what it's worth, it appears that SEL 0.3.1 does *not* contain any fix. Guess I'll just have to wait for 0.3.2 (or 0.4.0, or whatever).

Thanks for your help!

:iconthecrayolakidd:

Thanks for the offer. I can hack the version number... no problem, so long as you assure me it should work. I just wasn't sure if it was safe in this particular case.

I'll let you know after I restart FF whether SEL 0.3.1 fixes the problem or not.

A most excellent theme!
It goes well with Iglass3 Windowblinds skin (you share the same colored buttons)

Speaking of buttons, is there any way to shrink them a tad (and I don't mean by using small icons)? I'm just looking to slim down the toolbar a bit so it's not so top heavy. Would the same tweak work on reducing the icons size in the options menu? IMHO these changes would make the whole theme tighter.
Please consider this as an option; I really do love the theme.

Thanks for sharing :-)

Just out of curiosity, if using small icons is noot small enough, how small are you looking to go with the buttons?
Reply
:iconmydogjake:
MyDogJake Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2005
Crayolakidd;

I guess my first message was unclear; what I'd like to find is a happy medium between your current large icons (on the toolbar) and the small icons available in the customize option. Maybe you could shrink the large icons to something about 80% as big? (which is still much bigger than small icons)
The "Phoenity" theme icons (another fav) might be a good example.

Regarding the options menu icons; maybe something about 70% as big?

Thank you for asking :-) and again, thanks for sharing!

What version of FX are you using...have not heard of any similar probs.....might be a prob with FX itself - esp if you have updated recently to either beta or 1.6a1, and even nore so if you have done so without creating a new profile (that when all sort of problems occur, esp with the installing of new themes or extensions.) Send me an email or PM and will try and run through a fix with you :)

Am perplexed because whilt a few bugs appeared along the way, have not had, seen or even heard of that one. I actually have two or three folders on my toolbar myself, as well as a couple of live marks, and all work perfectly. Would be interested to hear whether anyone else has had this prob, so we can figure out what it is that is causing a conflict, cause I can't fix what i can't myself see. Would even be helpful if you could give me a list of the extensions u are using so I see if the conflict lies there :)

I love Aquatint, but... in my Fx configuration, the bookmarks in the Bookmarks Toolbar are organized within folders in such a way that what appears on the toolbar are folders each containing subfolders and/or bookmarks. On the first level there appear no naked bookmarks. Well, the folders do not open when clicked, if I happen to be using Aquatint. Normally the folders expand into drop-down menus.

It so happens that Aquatint is the only theme, of those I have tried, in which this happens. I would like to know whether anybody has experienced the same... and if so, is it a bug or an extension conflict. Some feedback would be appreciated.

Again, I would like to overcome this issue, since the theme actually looks gorgeous with the theme I am currently using.

Thanks in advance,
