Description:

DancingMouse brings Tango icons to Mozilla Firefox. It supports many Firefox extensions: All in One Sidebar, Sage, Image Toolbar, Tab Mix Plus, Pearl Crescent Page Saver Basic and FireFTP. Support of other extensions is planned.

Enjoy! You can also try DancingMouse for Thunderbird! http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/DancingMouse+for+Thunderbird?content=57646


(I know that lots of Tango-based Firefox themes exist now, but no one meet my needs...)

Thank you for your comments and ideas.

An incredibly complete theme - nice job. Would you be interested in its inclusion in my Tango Generator? I'm hoping for a big new release some time this summer and this theme seems far more complete than the one I'm currently using as a base. If you did accept, the Generator would take care of theme variations for you (industrial folder icons, tangerine, gion and gnome icons etc.).

Keep up the good work!

"If you did accept, the Generator would take care of theme variations for you (industrial folder icons, tangerine, gion and gnome icons etc.)."

I don't understand much...

I understand that you want to add this theme to Tango Generator. It's not a problem...

BTW, I had ("had", not "have" -- my hard disc is broken :-/) some Tango icons for GNOME application which don't use the system theme, for example: Liferea, GFTP, GThumb... I could create it again and you could add it to your program.

Oh and a couple of bugs - if you mouse over the close button on an inactive tab, the button alignment changes from slightly off to correct. Also, the close icons aren't technically Tango - I may quickly draw up some more guidline compliant ones - and I too think you should apply some alpha transparency to inactive icons, although they do currently give the theme a unique look.

It essentially replaces many apps and creates a custom theme based on an order of various other themes and a collection of custom icons by myself. Currently, it uses one of Novell's firefox themes and replaces most of the icons with ones from a theme the user has customised.

It already themes GFTP and Liferea, and although I don't use GThumb I believe recent versions are covered. For more information check out http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Tango-Generator+2?content=55081 .

What about an alternate version with Tangerine folders style instead of the Tango folders style ? Tango one are blue, Tangerine is orange and is pretty much used too IMHO.

Yeah, I know Tangerine icons. In fact, I didn't plan it. Maybe, one day, the Tangerine version originate, but that's not my priority. It's more probably that I will give you a manual how to change these icons...

The only tango-based theme that works fine with "Use small icons" enabled. Very smooth overall - I'm using it now. Thanks!

OK, I've found a little bug. There are those tiny icons on tabs that you click to close tabs (white x on red background). On an inactive tab the border on the left side of this icon disappears (it seems to be shifted one pixel to the left), the full icon is displayed only on the active tab, or with the cursor is over the icon on an inactive tab. I hope this explanation makes sense...

Thank you for your report. (I can't this bug detect, because I don't use close-button on all tabs, but only on on the right... It's more practical.)

Well, I will correct it in the next release.

Yes, I noticed this too.
I disabled "close tab button on all tabs" and I have only the close button on the active tab for now (using Tab Mix Plus extension), until the bug is fixed.

This is definitely the best one of the Tango based Firefox themes. I look forward to the Thunderbird theme.

The disabled icons simply confuses me. They actually have more contrast than the active ones, I think that if they were the normal one, but to ~50% alpha this would be good.

Other than that: EXCELLENT theme.

Thank you for your comment.

I was thinking about the disabled icons... I like both of the styles: the monochrome and the translucent one.

I will do some experiments with it and I will wait for other opinions.

Monochromes one are great too, but as I said, they actually have a greater contrast than the others, if those, or the orgiginals, had alpha, it would be great.

If you look at other gnome applications, they have alpha-ed icons for disabled one.

I know, it is your theme, but if it doesn't go into mainstream, will it be possible to set it as an option?

Yes, I know what you mean. I know that standard GNOME applications use the translucent style.

It's probably that I will change it to the transcluent style. However, I'd like to read other opinions.

well, imo the inactive icons look more active than the active ones :D

oh, btw: could you please try to support the "Go Up"-Extension? It's only one icon, but it really looks out of place now :o

There is no "old style". The old style is the built-in style...

Well, i dunno what the old one looks like (no idea where this is used), so I can't compare...
