Description:

I just fixed the theme for the latest Firefox update. The original is at http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=11442.

If you want to use the QT rather than silly GTK open with/save as dialogs in Firefox, see this http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=110353. Not only does it look better, but you can type in the path of the app you want to use to open with instead of being forced to browse and select it.

-------

Plastikfox is a theme for Mozilla Firefox to make it have the same look as the KDE programs with the Plastik style and the Crystal SVG 1.0 icon set.

IMPORTANT: This is an alpha version with known bugs. I publish it so that you can use it with Firefox 1.5 but it still needs more development. Anyway the bugs shouldn't be much disturbing for everyday use. If you want a stable and reliable version stick to 1.6 while 2.0 is being developed.


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: Plastikfox 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 'Plastik' 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:

HOW TO INSTALL
-------------------------------------

If you have an older version of the theme, uninstall it before installing a new one.

· Extract the files anywhere you want
· Open the install.html file in Firefox (you don't need to be 'root')
· Click the "Install" button
· Accept when it prompts for the theme installation
· 'Tools' menu - Themes
· Select 'Plastikfox Crystal SVG' and click 'Use this theme'
· Restart Firefox (VERY IMPORTANT!)
· Enjoy!

If you want, you may delete the downloaded files once the theme is installed.
