Description:

Polyesterfox is a theme for Mozilla Firefox to make it have the same look as the KDE programs with the Polyester style and the Crystal SVG icon set.


ABOUT THE OK AND CANCEL BUTTONS: Firefox 1.5 doesn't have OK and Cancel buttons anymore in the Options dialog but it's possible to enable them again. Just write "about:config" in the address bar, search for the key "browser.preferences.instantApply" and set it to false. The OK and Cancel buttons should be there back again.

BUTTON ORDER: You can reverse the button order in the dialog boxes so they are like in the other KDE applications. Simply click "Reverse button order" to install a patch to activate this feature.


COLOR SCHEME: Polyesterfox doesn't follow the KDE color scheme. Remember it's just a theme for Firefox, so it's impossible to do it. It's made with the 'Polyester' color scheme. If you want to change the color scheme you'll have to modify the theme manually. :(


Thanks to Everaldo for his Crystal SVG icon sets. You can get them at:

It's tough to emulate a theme with so many options. Even ignoring the color theming, there are lots of things that vary. For example, I don't use the colored scrollbars.

Unfortunately, using Firefox with GTK widgets and GTK-Qt theme gives me a closer approximation of the widgets in my other apps, though it isn't as polished as your theme (a problem I ran into when creating a keramik theme for Opera).

Hopefully someday there can be a Qt frontend for Firefox so all this could be avoided. That aside, good job on the theme and its faithfulness!

Very nice I vote you "good".

I have a problem btw.
The favicons of my bookmarks in the bookmarks toolbar are displayed larger than they are and the toolbar looks twice bigger than usual.
This happens only with this theme.

I hope you can fix it because it a great them and perfect in KDE :)

Well, that happens with the betas. ;-) A screenshot would be very helpful to fix it, since I don't experience that problem. Could you please send me one? You can find my e-mail address when you click over my nickname.

BTW, when you make a screenshot, please hover one of the widgets you mean (put the mouse pointer over some of them), since that way I can get more details about the size of that widget.
