Will release an updated XPI soon. The one I used to package the XPIs used an unusual compression method.

Sorry for the inconvenience caused by the earlier update, the fixed XPI is now up as v2.8.3.1.

v2.8.3 has been pulled out to prevent others from updating to this version erroneously.

Hello. I like this theme, but I notice some issues. In Ubuntu 14.04, installing MM 2.8.3.1 produced this in the menu bar:
Image
As you see, the menu bar has darker grey styling as some other themes (like Camimoon), which is fine, but then there is a gap above the menu bar and below the title bar with the lighter grey.

And then when you use a persona, the menu bar stays grey, the gap remains, and the text becomes doubled, like so:

Installed 2.8.4a1 in Ubuntu, and it looks like this:
Image
The gap is fixed. :thumbup:
However, the gray title bar remains unyielding, and the double writing persists. :|
And there is a new issue, a strange fading in the Navigation Bar. As you see, the navigation buttons are almost invisible now, very hard to see. :problem:

Update to Material Moon: 2.8.6
  • Improve overall browser theme appearance
    • Use dark mode when not in brighttext
    • Don't use gradients on notifications
    • Use blue color on tabs (not on main window)
    • Align URL & Search bars' button styles with current Chrome version
    • SVGify a lot of areas (this includes toolbar icons, tab, net-error images, arrows, and others)
  • Configurable small/large icon scales
    • By configurable, you can override any of these variables using userChrome/Stylish with your own values:
      • __--toolbarbutton-large-is__
      • __--toolbarbutton-small-is__
    • and change how large the icons are (can be in use small icons mode or vice versa)
    • Since we're using SVG now, no need to adjust tons of things just to have a large icon size!
  • Cherrypick commits from upstream PMChrome
    • Fix window title position
    • Add basic OS X support and add checkmark items
    • Style menubar on Linux in lwthemes
    • Move Windows-specific elements to winnt/browser.css
    • Improve Linux menubar styling
    • Improve appmenu appearance on Linux
  • Circle button animation should apply only to navigation bar
  • Page Info & Preferences window now has proper selected (blue) and hover states
  • Rewrite Add-ons Manager style
  • Improve certificate error page appearance
  • About pages style cleanup (home, memory, support, plugins)
  • Use material progress meter
  • Use material folder icon for all

You can update the theme by:
Visiting the releases page of the repository or by checking for updates in the Add-ons Manager.

@gracious1, can you try this new release if it fixes the menu bar problem?

Hi, I almost didn't see this! Thanks for working on this. (Click on each thumbnail below to enlarge.)

Here is what it looks like in PM 27.8.0a1 x86_64 (2018-01-31) on Ubuntu 14.04:
Image
The Location and Search bars went really dark on this theme. Now, that may be a feature and not a bug?
(Edit: Actually, I rather like this, but I wish it were a little more translucent so I could see persona better. It looks as though Material Moon has intentionally completely opaque bars).
Nevertheless, the menu bar isn't grey any more, but the menu bar and the rest of the toolbars don't quite match.
Here's a screenshot without the Navigation toolbar:
Image
There is some discoloration stretching horizontally across, and it doesn't blend together.

And here are screenshots of other popular personas to further illustrate this issue:
Image
Two Little Birds
Image
Japanese Tattoo
Image
Three Wolf Moon Shirt

The last one also has the dark URL & Search bars:
Image

For comparison, here are what a couple of these look like with the Default theme:
Image

Image
The menu and the rest of the toolbars blend together seamlessly.


I hope this is something that is fixable! Thanks for all the work you've done so far!

That screenshot looks like an older version of MacOS, not Linux. Were you using Snow Leopard?

It's Ubuntu 14.04, as I stated earlier in this thread. It has elements that look like MacOS, yes. I am using a theme (I think it is called Mbuntu-zukimac) that resembles MacOS, along with some Oxygen icons. You can tell it is not really Mac OS because there is no Apple menu, the menu bar is below the title bar, and it has the shortcuts underlined.

@gracious1, thank you for your feedback, these are now fixed in this release: 2.8.7
  • Bring back options.png: causes blank option images for some extensions
  • Further improve lightweight themes appearance based on feedback given
    • Stop showing the background gradient on the nav bar
    • it was originally intended to be able to see the toolbar images more clearly but that is no longer the case
    • Graphical tab switcher's background is now fixed to color white, using the variable causes some bugs when on a lightweight theme
    • Don't enforce black background on fullscreen (this allows it to be able to have persona background on fullscreen)
  • Make the graphical Ctrl+Tab switcher flat
  • Alternative download status button should change state properly
  • Rename a lot of variables and give them a better name
  • URL bar's background when unfocused is now less opaque when using a lightweight theme
    • This can be configured with the variable '--urlbar-unfocused-background-color'
  • Notification icon now uses the same style of other URL bar buttons
  • Restore private browsing indicator on menu bar

You can update the theme by:
Visiting the releases page of the repository or by checking for updates in the Add-ons Manager.
