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.
