Classic Style for Favicons

Review of Classic Style for Favicons

Classic Style for Favicons is a very neat extension for the browser. This add-on for Firefox puts the favicon in the URL Bar and restores the old favicon behavior with secure sites identity background colors.  Optionally doesn’t show the Tab Bar when only one tab is open.

Winstripe Modernized

Want to take Firefox 3 back to a simpler time?  With the Winstripe Modernized theme for Firefox, you can make it look like Firefox 1.5.

Winstripe Modernized for Firefox

There are a lot of people out there that still enjoy the “good ol’ days” of Firefox, and with this theme, you can re-live your memories while still getting all the benefits of the Firefox 3 upgrade.  Personally, I like this theme icons at least, a lot more than I do the current Firefox default theme.  Maybe I too am one of those who has an emotional bond with this previous version of the browser.

Oh how many hours we spent together, and long long nights.  It seems like it was only yesterday I first glanced my eyes on your little house home icon.. thingy?

Here are some special features of the theme:

  • URL Dropmarker has been Removed (check here if you need it)
  • The Stop and Reload buttons have been merged to save space
  • URL bar is colored green if the SSL cert is safe, yellow if weak and red it broken.
  • All Menus have Icons
  • Increased Font Size for the Menu Bar
  • Active Tabs now Have an Orange Border Line

Take a trip back to Firefox’s past and pickup the Winstripe Modernized theme at the Firefox Add-ons site.

Classic Compact Theme and Add-on

The tiny little theme we all know and love is now ready for Firefox 3.  Classic Compact might be my favorite out of all the “Mini Me” themes out there for Firefox.  Not only does it shrink the browser interface of Firefox but it also does so in a visually appealing way.

Not only do we get a theme to share though, we awesome have an add-on to help customize Classic Compact even more.  The rightfully named Classic Compact Options extension gives you a little more control over the specific theme itself.

Options include: FF2 buttons; keyhole arrows; turning off gradient backgrounds; modifying borders; OS scrollbars; dark system color support; merging menu bar into one menu button; etc.

So if your already growing tired of the default Firefox 3 theme, might give Classic Compact a shot.

Winstripe Modern Theme for Firefox

So you enjoy that good ol’ theme from Firefox versions past, with a touch up here and there?

Winstripe Modern

You need to pick up Winstripe Modern then. I don’t know what it is, but something just feels right about this theme. It works for me on a visual sense, and is still one of my top ten favorite themes. You might check the previews to get a closer look at the interface – but you know it, you love it – so why don’t you have it?
