Firefox Appearance Question

Postby FreshPineSent on Thu Mar 19, 2009 1:41 pm

I have a question about the user interface themes, and how they work with Firefox. Right now I am using the Wild Mint theme, and I like it for most applications, but in Firefox, it causes search boxes and buttons to render in an unsightly manner. There are no graphical errors, I just really don't like the color combination that Wild Mint gives to Firefox. Is there any way I can apply, say, Clearlooks to just web pages being displayed in firefox? The images attached may provide a better explanation of what I want to do.
Thanks.

FF3 will adopt the your theme as its appearance, so I'd just right-click the desktop, go to Change Desktop Background and then select the Themes tab. From there, you can adjust your exist theme. You can also go to gnome-look.org and download other themes, and adjust the color scheme of them as you please. I don't think I've ever used a theme completely out of the box; I always change them.

For what you specifcally want to do, once you right-click the desktop, go to Change Desktop Background, and hit the Themes tab, hit Customize and select the Colors tab. You can change the color of Input Box (i.e., search engine fields) there.

That would work, but I want the fields to remain dark in applications. I only want white fields/buttons displayed in FF.

Perhaps, rather than fiddle with your overall theme, you could try going to the Firefox add-ons page ( Tools - Add0ns - Get Addons ) and download a Firefox theme that was consistent with your overall theme but gave you what you want inside Firefox? Just a thought.

I looked there, but I think I will end up building my own.
