nintendo309 (author)2008-08-15

I looked through it, and I noticed that I have all of these already. Yes. I am 1337. But that's not 1337 enough. Well, I guess I'm 01101101001001110101101001011001

Gizmo_gal (author)2008-02-08

I cant wait to do this! I'm the only one in the house to use FF but I put it on ALL the pc's in the house. Even my dads business pcs. I'm gonna do this to my pc FF....just as soon as I get that link.

lopez8675 (author)Gizmo_gal2008-07-09

how many computers do you have?

robots199 (author)Gizmo_gal2008-02-12

Gizmo_gal reply----------- I am thrilled that you use firefox and put it everywhere lol. I was wondering what link you were talking about============== Sincerely Robots199

Gizmo_gal (author)robots1992008-02-22

Sorry this took so long. I hadn't checked my email in over a month and I had several dozen emails to go through. Step 5 reads as though there should be a link there, but there isn't.... Oh, Lord of the Mozilla Browser I beseech thee to check over text of step 5 and determine whether or not a link belongs there. My silly mortal mind cant fathom what it means with out you! LOL ; )

Nanotech (author)2008-04-05

I just signed up for firefox before i came to instructables. I have to tip my hat to all that post instructables! This instructable to me is amazing....I am enjoying it all, I would like someone to help me change the way my google page looks though. I like the way yours displays. Will someone walk me through it. Thanx again to all the great minds.

MattWasser (author)2008-02-16

Thank You, you are god to me

robots199 (author)MattWasser2008-02-20

Now I am not god but you can call me '"Firefox God"

Gizmo_gal (author)2008-02-08

Found where? Add a link please. I wont do a project if I don't have all the pieces and resources first.

flippingflipper (author)2008-01-24

lol and also by making firefox black, you save energy, by not havingto use lighter pixels. much like

Reply to flipping fliper...... That is a very good point,though I am using a lcd monitor , The redshift theme is perfect for that black firefox effect

robots199 (author)2008-01-24

Reply to Berky93_ The problem that you are having is least to me....... Have you gone into your add-ons page and checked if it is on..... It might be disabled which is my opinion. If it stll does not work Private message me..... -------------Robots199----------

berky93 (author)2008-01-23

can someone tell me how to get tab effect to work? Ive tried every tab-switching/creating method I know but no avail

Lord Of Mystra (author)2008-01-13

Go Bre!

robots199 (author)Lord Of Mystra2008-01-16

Thank you Very much

Lord Of Mystra (author)2008-01-13

Very interesting... You cannot take a screenshot of mozilla while it's cubing, it just shows what page it was on.

robots199 (author)Lord Of Mystra2008-01-16

The way I took most of the screen shots I used the preview theme page on the Mozilla website.

michaelpgray (author)2007-12-27

You should also check out the black theme for windows XP.

Thanks! I've been looking for this.

robots199 (author)michaelpgray2008-01-03

please michaelpgray no spam

michaelpgray (author)robots1992008-01-04

Spam? Since I posted a link to something related to your instructable you consider this spam? Your entire instructable is based on links to get this or that to make your screen cool. But your browsers title bar is still grey. The link I posted shows you how to change that to black to fit the theme you are going for. If you think it is spam because the link gives you another link to a microsoft download then I appologize. Here is the direct link to the Microsoft Zune theme for Windows.

I do appreciate your instructable. I am already using a different black theme for Firefox but thank you for showing me "Tab Effects".

robots199 (author)2008-01-09

HELLO every one!!!! I have started a new group so please check it out....IT is called firefox hackers and modders and any one with a firefox related instructable can join!!!!

Spectrace (author)2007-12-28

you took my theme! lol jk. i think alot of people already know how to make firefox their own already hah. i personally have "tabs mix plus", "adblock plus", and "DownThemAll!" , i used to have fasterfox, but i dont remember why i dont have it anymore, it was probly on my old hard drive.

robots199 (author)Spectrace2008-01-09

Personaly I do not recommend fasterfox as it slows down firefox but downthemall is pretty good

robots199 (author)2007-12-26

Thank both of you

GorillazMiko (author)2007-12-26

awesome, i always get awesome themes and add ons from mozilla. :D great instructable.

Emoo (author)2007-12-26

I love firefox and I appreciate the heads-up on these nifty extensions
