Dark Moon has been updated to v1.1.2.

What's new?
- darken about:memory
- make buttons in about:addons more consistent
- make selected tab more visible

Thanks for the update. New buttons look great.

I like what you did regarding making the current tab stand out from the rest, but for me, it's at the expense of making the text on the non-current tabs too dark. I realize this stuff is very subjective and like you mentioned, perhaps hardware dependent.

I made the previous version work for me with the aid of Tab Utilities. This allowed me to customize the appearance of all tab states (current, unread, read, unloaded, etc.) I would like to continue using Tab Utilities and Dark Moon, but with your current version, I can't make the tab text brighter.

For instance, the text color you use on non-current tabs is some value of grey. If I try to change it to white (#FFFFFF) using Tab Utilities, its stays the same color you have defined. Changing it to #808080 doesn't make if 50% grey, it makes it 50% of your color.

Do you know any way around that? Is there any change you could make to allow something like Tab Utilities to override your colors?

If too many people find the change bothersome I'll change it back (or at least brighten them a bit); I'll admit it is a little too dark.

You can change it back with a bit of CSS:

Code: Select all

.tab-text {
  opacity: 1 !important;
}

I'll vote to changing it back. At least that way I can make whatever changes I like using Tab Utilities.

So your previous version allowed me to change the appearance of the tabs completely (maybe only changing the background tab color, which is allowed to be overridden?) I guess you did something differently this time that is preventing that?

I like the darkened loaded tabs, makes it easier to identify the tab currently in-use.

Any thought about changing it back? For now, I am running the old theme so that I can still have control over the colour of the text and background of the tabs.

With the old theme, at least users have the ability to change the colouring of the tabs using something like Tab Utilities. With the new theme, it's take it or leave it.

I've no intention to completely remove the opacity change that I added previously, though I may tweak it slightly in future. I have already provided CSS you can use to change it back a few posts above. Please use either userChrome.css or Stylish to apply these. It is certainly not a "take it or leave it" scenario, as you can always change things with CSS, like the change I have provided. :)

OK. I didn't realize how easy it was to implement the CSS you supplied using Stylish! Just did it and I am as happy as a clam! Thank you for that suggestion and for your great theme.

Would like to aspire to do a complete theme myself sometime, just haven't had the commitment to actually read thru all the standard stylesheets to change everything from the ground up, so look upto folks like you who have, and so any criticism are qualified with respect. Overall very impressed but a few niggling issues put me off. Firstly ive only ever tried like 2 other complete themes, think they were FT DeepDark & BlackFox, and probably had them installed nomore than a minute a piece, so only installed this to see if things might be better on the Palemoon side of things to use occasionally

wont keep it, mainly cause i find most of the popup/dropdown menus too bright, and too small, having reduced font-size, significantly reduced padding/margins, and #FFF text color, also generally dont like complete themes changing icons (edit fwiw just tried your 'Darkness' forked theme, this' definitely better)

couple addon incompatibilities
• obviously Tab Mix Plus' latest release as megaman mentioned on pg1. Am using tab_mix_plus-0.4.2.3pre.160328a1 from here recommended on the known incompatibilities page, might be worth adding a note to the first post to say what the version to downgrade to
• Hide Captions Titlebar Plus 2,8.7rc floating titlebar isnt skinned, its rendered tranlucent white with white text, the menus themselves are skinned tho
• OmniSidebar 1.3.2.1 addons page needs the surrounding background skinned, as its using your white icons but is still the very light blue of its standard theme (its menu banner #sidebar-title could also be skinned if you were there)

Thanks for the feedback! As for making a complete theme yourself, it's really not as bad as some may think. :) I did a fairly rough guide over here about it, but really, I'd just suggest taking the default theme (as mentioned in the guide) and maybe tweaking some of the icons, just to get a feel for theme creation. (editing icons doesn't require any CSS changes, so long as the icons are the same size!) Then, once you're more confident, you can always make some small tweaks, so for example changing the colours of the toolbars. Small steps are never a bad thing! :) I'd certainly welcome new theme developers, and feel free to ask if help is needed (this applies to anyone, of course).

With regards to your feedback about the extension incompatibilities, I can take a look, but as those extensions are pretty much doing their own thing as opposed to using the built-in objects I can only do so much; I'd prefer not to have to style every extension out there, after all. :)

thanks for the encouragement Looty. However if i use your brilliant guide and start one, will probably leave most of the icons. Btw read abit of that thread discussing Fx pulling the plug on complete themes, and how theyve been trying to downplay their popularity for years, sad what control freaks (aka SJWs) do for kicks (checkout the book SJWs Always Lie, talks alittle about how they hammered the nails into Firefox's coffin back in 2013? getting one of the lead developers fired for nothing, didnt follow the story at the time, but explains alot of the grumbling have heard from devs and explains Australis itself).

Tbh my main gripe with Palemoon now is the limited support for the Stylish editor, but just discovered a workaround to get it to use the Devtools Style Editor formatting (via 1.4.3 in extensions.stylish.editor 0 mode) but also means not having access to word wrap, and just discovered the ItsAllText addon, and that doesnt work in 0 mode either (kindof annoyed the best workaround is also borked).

Any of the devs here considering forking Stylish 2.0.6 to use the Palemoon devtools Style Edtor formatting? Anyway back on topic thanks again, will look thru more of your themes and will definately do a Palemoon specific theme if i start one. Cheers

Thank you Lootyhoof for all your work and for Dark Moon, i love this style.
Could you do dark verision "Pale Moon blank page"? Now it is bright which contrasts with the elegant Dark Moon style.

Best regards.

This isn't something that can be put into a theme, sadly, due to how that page is styled. You can add this style either to Stylish, or userContent.css:

Code: Select all

@-moz-document url("about:logopage") {
  body {
    background: rgb(50,50,50) !important;
  }
}

Actually, the logo page background does respond to dark themes, but that's dark system themes ;)

This is an issue with the way Pale Moon deals with window borders in Windows 10, rather than a theme bug.

Hello Lootyhoof, is it possible to make the close tab button a bit more bold?

Or is there a way to put a different button, something easier to see?

The reason I ask is because on Tree Style Tab it is hard to see the close buttons.

The tab close button looks fine in usual usage for this theme, so I won't be changing the appearance of it, sorry.

For your case however, you can use this (for example - it sets it to the "bright" icons from the default theme):

Code: Select all

.close-icon {
  list-style-image: url('data:image/png;base64,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') !important;
