Themes do not theme about:plugins

Postby Goodydino » Wed, 08 Nov 2017, 23:44

Why do none of the 9 themes I added to Pale Moon change the colours in the about:plugins page? I changed the background colours in most of them to fit with the colour schemes of the themes themselves (which I also modified), but it did nothing to about:plugins. Even Walnutty, which uses wood-grain images as backgrounds did nothing to about:plugins.

To which themes do you refer and how would you see these look?

Aeromoon 2.0.2
DarkPitch 1.6.0
Modoki Moon 1.6.0
Moonscape 6.18
Noia Moon 1.6.0
Phoenity Rebirth 2.0.3
Qute Large 2.0.1
Tangerinemoon 2.1.0
Walnutty 1.1.0

Those are the themes I am using with Pale Moon. I tried changing the colours used in global/plugins.css, and that had no effect. System colours are still used in about:plugins. The theming does work in about:config and about:support. I changed background colours for all but DarkPitch, Noia Moon and Walnutty, since I dislike the system colours. Walnutty uses wood grain images for backgrounds. Noia Moon uses an extension to change the backgrounds.

What do I expect to see? I expect to see the colours I put into plugins.css in the about:plugins window. That works with SeaMonkey and it worked with Firefox.

So, for example, you would like to see something more like this in the Walnutty theme:

That's from SeaMonkey 2.48 (after being converted because maxVersion is 2.36).
(Of course, you'd like it without the bug that mashed up the Version and State entries. ;) )

Absolutely. That looks great. That Is the style of window I see with SeaMonkey. I am not sure what the grey bar near the top (it says, "Missing something...") is, however.

The whole picture was a screenshot of Walnut for SeaMonkey, with some changes made to be compatible with SeaMonkey 2.48.
Specifically Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey changed the maxVersion in the install.rdf because it was too low for SM 2.48 (the version I use). The converter may have made other changes, too, which is why there is a minor bug (the State and Version entries in the about:plugins page are mashed together).

The grey bar at the top is simply the window's title bar. I am using Ubuntu Linux. I used unity-tweak-tool to modify certain UI elements to look more like Macintosh, so that is not the default Ubuntu look. I don't see anything that says "Missing something....". Could you point out where you see that?

Cheers.

Screen Shot 2017-11-13 at 22.58.17.png

I do not mean the title bar, but a grey bar above the table.

Did you take that screenshot from Firefox?
It looks it's from Firefox, because Firefox deprecated NPAPI plugins. That is what that message with the grey background is about.
You won't see that in Pale Moon. See also this glossary

That screenshot was taken from SeaMonkey. I do not have Firefox any more.

I have SeaMonkey 2.49.1. I did have to do a little bit of fixing for third-party themes, but they are fine now.

Sorry for the delay, but I'm not sure I follow. Walnutty in particular already styles about:plugins just fine.

As for others, a lot of them will be taking from the browser's built-in styles. Others will be using styles very similar to that. If you want to edit those, you could use either Stylish or userContent.css.

Have you tried with other add-ons/stylings disabled?

I see the problem now. It is using the toolbar button from MR Tech Toolkit that causes the different theming, not about:plugins itself. The URL it uses:
chrome://local_install/content/plugins.html
The strange thing is that did not happen with Firefox or SeaMonkey. The window for the plugins list was themed there.
I wonder why the button is not just using about:plugins? The about:config button uses about:config as the URL. I guess I'll just use a bookmark and remove the button.
