How to Add or Remove Firefox Personas

Personas Guide! Firefox Personas, the lightweight themes for the Firefox browser, are still pretty new to the Mozilla user base our there.

With that in mind, I thought it might be handy to guide you through the process when it comes to adding a new Persona theme to your browser, removing a Persona theme from your browser, and how to chance through Persona themes – once you have several saved to your system.

Give Firefox Opera 10′s Theme

Sure, there might only be six people in the world using the Opera browser, however you do have to admit those six people have a pretty nice looking theme for that browser of choice.  Would you like to give Firefox the look and feel of Opera 10?  If so, read on.

Both the Operetta and Operetta Advance themes for Firefox will give you that Opera look and feel you have been looking for.  The main difference between the two themes is that Operetta has the tab bar in the usual location (under the bookmarks) and Operetta Advance will move the tab bar to the top of the browser (on top of the menu).  So you have two choices to work with, depending on where you want the tabs bar.

Here is what Operetta looks like in action.

Teeny Tiny Stratini Theme for Firefox

Today we have the Teeny-tiny Stratini-Stripe Point Nine theme for Firefox. Yes, go ahead and take a minute to say that out loud, I promise it is as fan as it looks.  This fantastic theme takes the classic winstripe look and feel and gives it the clean Stratini presentation.

Another Awesome Stratini Theme

Here is a little more about the Firefox theme from the developer:

The icons and style are mostly taken directly from Firefox 0.9 Winstripe and Pinstripe for Mac, both designed by Kevin Gerich and Stephen Horlander. This is my absolute favorite Firefox theme, and I am not planning on porting others into Stratini. The code is all based on Stratini so Stratini-Stripe 0.9 includes all of the Stratini features such as tiny Teeny Mode, miniature bookmarks, rotating Reload button, highlighted text input boxes, and encryption coloring in the urlbar.

This adds one more unique member to the Stratini family of themes, have you collected them all?

You can pick up the Stratini-Stripe Point Nine theme from the Firefox Add-ons web site.  Now you tell me, which Stratini theme is your favorite?

Bringing the God of War to Firefox

Are you a big fan of the God of War series of video games?  If so, another big fan has made a Firefox theme for you to use.  Check out the new (and obviously named) God of War theme for Firefox.

Firefox of War? Nice New Theme!

Overall, I really like the detail they went into with this theme, it looks like no menu was left un-turned.  However, the icons (even in small icon mode) are still pretty large and in charge.  If they could edit those down some, this one would rank up there with some of the other great video game inspired Firefox themes.  Here is a closer look at some of the icons that have been customized for this theme:

Kid Tested, Kratos Approved

With a little tweaking, this theme could be number one.  So if you like God of War, and you like Firefox themes with big interfaces – then, you have found your perfect theme to use. You can pick up the God of War theme for Firefox over at the Firefox Add-ons web site.

Second Look at a New Tab King

It has been a while since I checked out the New Tab King add-on for Firefox, and I have to say I am impressed with the progression of the Firefox extension.  For those of you who don’t know, New Tab King replaces your blank new tab with a much more functional page of tools.

You get instant access to recently closed tabs, personalized suggested sites and even shortcuts to your desktop applications. 

Closer Look at New Tab King

The most recent release also comes with 7 built in themes, so you have a few more ways to customize it to suit your needs.

There is no reason why, these days, your new tab should be empty and bland.  With the New Tab King add-on for Firefox, you can make the new tab page and the Firefox browser even more functional than it was before.

Bring the Legend of Zelda to Firefox

Zelda Theme for Firefox

Well, they did it with Mario – so why doesn’t the Legend of Zelda deserve a Firefox theme?  MoZelda (get it? Mozilla = MoZelda) is an awesome looking Firefox 3.5 theme that will be helping you battle Moblins before you know it.

With what looks to be some original art, mixed with some Link shots from the latest Zelda game, this theme is very visually appealing and colorful.  Also, it scores points with me because it is Zelda, probably one of my favorite video game franchises to date.

Grab the MoZelda theme while you can, before Gannon’s evil copyright lawyers come to ‘nab this treasure.

Stratini – Back in Black (and in Firefox)!

The Stratini theme is not a new theme to Firefox Facts readers, as I have already sung it’s praises once before. But now, the developer has released a darker version of the same theme – and I do have to say – it looks very sleek.

Here is a little more about the theme from the developer:

Black Stratini is my Stratini theme with a dose of the darkness. All highlights are in dark blue, as blue is the most common highlight color for Windows and Mac color schemes. Black Stratini uses Stratini Padded icons and spacing in Large Icons mode and Stratini icons in Small Icons and Teeny modes. This gives Black Stratini the unique ability to have three very different sizes in one package.

You can pick up and use Black Stratini from the Firefox Add-ons web site.  Which do you like more, the light background or the black background, for this awesome browsing skin?
