Want a Slickerfox?

Are you searching for a unique theme that doesn’t go over the top?  Slickerfox might be your new favorite Firefox add-on then.  It promises to be slicker, simpler, smaller, flatter, fuller and foxier.  Can it live up to all that hype?

Slickerfox in Action

Here is a little more about Slickerfox from it’s creator:

There is a philosophy behind the shapes, colors and designs of all of the Slickerfox icons, which aspires to be user friendly as well as recall older Firefox designs. Simplicity and intuitive control is the overall goal of the theme. Slickerfox uses native OS Scheme settings just like the default Firefox theme, so it will follow the look of the rest of your OS.

Like what you see?  You can pick up the experimental theme, Slickerfox for Firefox from the Firefox Add-ons web site.

Firesizer – Resize Firefox to Your Liking

FiresizerResizing your browser window. This isn’t just something that web designers need – I think we all move our windows around the screen from time to time. Sometimes, just to let you in on a little secret… I do it just for the fun of it.

Firesizer is an extension for Firefox that will let you pre-set a series of browser sizes so you can quickly jump from one to the other. Here is a little more information about the extention:

Provides a menu and status bar to resize the window dimensions to a specific size. Unlike other similar extensions, this one sets the size of the *entire window*, not just the HTML area.

Nobody is going to claim this extension is reinventing the wheel, but it is a small extension that does what it sets out to do. As long as you can get that much done, your alright in my book.

Tiny Menu for Firefox

tiny-menu.pngDo you think your menu bar takes up too much of your browsing room in Firefox? Over the years, not a lot of changes have happened to the menu bar that your find on top of most applications. Your File, Edit, View choices always seem to stay the same. What if we could shrink Firefox’s menu bar down to one drop down menu? That would save some space, right?

After you install, right click on any toolbar and choose customize. Drag all items in the navigation toolbar (back/forward, address bar, etc) up into the menu bar. Right click on a toolbar again, and un-select the (now empty) navigation bar. Tada, tiny!
