Description:

The form controls in linux version of firefox can be more beutiful.
They can be more friendly too.

* Focused input has black border.
* Reset button has red text - you will never click on it by accident
* Really large textareas
* hover effects on buttons, selects and checkboxes

There is only one downside - you will never see what styling webmaster put on his buttons :)


It is based on exellent Industrial Forms by Garret LeSage
http://linuxart.com/log/archives/2004/09/22/firefox-forms-work-in-progress/

Installation for Firefox 1.5
1. Download Tarball
2. add files from tarball to /res directory in your firefox installation.
3. Add content of winter.css to forms.css ( cat winter.css >> forms.css )
4. restart Firefox.

Enjoy! :)

And guys, if you rate the thing down - spend 20 seconds, drop me a line why you did not like it. Please.

KDE-ish. It looks more GNOMEish in that screenshot to me.

Too bad you cannot change dropdown menus with css...

Could it be possibleto do a hack so that Mozilla/Firefox could use the QT/KDE forms using the current style?
Something like gtk-qt-engine, that already make the external (not the html) interface look like kde a bit.

Your css only changes the submit button but leaves the reset one unaltered. It is really easy to change that. Can you do it?

Sure. The only thing to think about - do people need reset button at all? It is useless and often cliked by mistake.

I can make 'em disappear or give 'em red border "do not click me!" - just must decide what is better.

I still think that sometimes they can be useful. Don't make them disappear, that should be done by the form developer if he wants to do so. A red border is ok.

This is a very nice visual improvement for Firefox. Could it be merged in the project?

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=264523

there is discussion about similiar topic.

My style is more agressive in replacing widgets than Garret's. It makes sites look the way I want 'em to look - may be breaking desingner intent.

The web forms is one of the things I really dislike in standard Firefox, both under Linux and Win2k.
So I really like this one here, it's a vast optical improve. Keep going! :)

This looks strange: http://img26.exs.cx/img26/1249/radiobutton3pi.jpg

It looks like that if I click on a radiobutton. If I click anywhere else on the screen it looks normal again...
