"Mozilla will be getting a new look very soon. The Modern theme has been redesigned to be a little easier on the eyes. The new look includes a lighter shade of blue, colored toolbar button icons, and lots of other little touches. Bear with me as I land this sometime in the next week or so, as there will surely be bugs. The design is still evolving and there are likely to be frequent changes (for example, dialog buttons will not be black for long after landing)."

Joe also sent us a screenshot for you to check out, stay tuned for more info on this landing.


#57 Make the themes that you want

I do not mean this to be a personal attack on anyone, but just a reality check.

In answer to the question of "Why hasn't anyone created a _______ theme for Mozilla?" is "Why haven't you?"

Why complain that no one else is making the themes that you want? If you want a theme that looks a certain way then make it yourself.

If you do not have the skills to make a theme on your own, then why not contract someone to create the theme that you want?

Most of the people who work to develop Mozilla and design themes are not got getting paid to do it. They ask for constructive criticism because they want to make something that people want, but it annoys the heck out of me when I see non-contributors whining and bitching about how their personal preferences are not being met fast enough.
