[Release] Photonic

Unread post by Lootyhoof » 2019-02-10, 12:44

With the release of Firefox 57 came Quantum and the new "Photon" default theme. Now, this is on Pale Moon! :)

You can find the current release on the Pale Moon Add-ons Site. Source code can be found on GitHub.

Lootyhoof,
Could you check the Ctrl+Tab previews when switching tabs? There is no highlighting in the overlay.

Confirmed. I'll check it out.

On an unrelated note, I'm in the process of making this compatible with Basilisk. I hope to have something to give soon. Look forward to it. :)

As promised, Photonic has been updated to v2.0.0. This release comes with support for Basilisk! As such, it now has an entry on the Basilisk Add-ons Site too.
Image
It also supports many (but NOT all) features of Classic Theme Restorer (latest release only, currently 1.7.8.2019.02.26). Now you can sport similar looks on both Pale Moon and Basilisk. Which is which, I wonder? :think:
Basilisk, with CTR applied:

Image

Pale Moon, with Toolbarize Menu Button and the integration style applied:

Image
Pale Moon users will also find several other fixes and refinements in this release; these are detailed below.

Enjoy! :)

What's new?
- initial support for the Basilisk browser (http://www.basilisk-browser.org)
- includes support for many features of Classic Theme Restorer (CTR - https://github.com/Aris-t2/ClassicTheme ... r/releases)
- does NOT support every single feature of CTR, some features depend on the default theme being in use
- Pale Moon: make search icon more Photon-like
- Pale Moon: fix password notification icon
- Pale Moon: fix the ctrl-tab panel styling
- Pale Moon: remove the left margin on the urlbar to closer match Photon
- draw a border when hiding the tab bar
- fix all downloads view in library
- correctly style the narration controls in reader view
- improve styling of in-content spinbuttons
- make sure in-content tabs are uniform for all platforms
- Linux/macOS: style the popup notification menubutton the same as Windows
- Linux: fix in-content radio/checkbox styling
- Linux: remove GTK button icons
- Linux: use the correct tree twisty icons

Thank you for the update. I use this theme daily on Pale Moon; it is proof XUL browsers can look "modern" too.

One thing to note, category icons are missing with this extension: https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/aviary-addons-manager/. I believe it tries to pull the icons from the current theme (if there are any), but such is not the case here.

Code: Select all

#category-extension > .category-icon {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/category-extensions.png");
}
#category-theme > .category-icon {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/category-themes.png");
}
#category-plugin > .category-icon {
  list-style-image: url("chrome://mozapps/skin/extensions/category-plugins.png");
}

Do you have any other extensions installed? I haven't been able to confirm any such issues.

No, any addons except uBlock Origin. And for this screenshot I removed my "chrome" folder. 1.0.0 was OK.

Same distro w/ 33 active extensions (ABL, not uBO) which shouldn't matter - cannot reproduce.

Completely fresh profile folder without any customization. Strange.

It does not depend on GTK theme; is menu bar is on or off; are tabs on top or not. It's just occasionally appears on startup.

The arrow on the right looks clickable. Out of curiosity, what happens if you do?

Also, was Photonic the only thing that updated recently (in your system in general, not just Pale Moon)? Does this also happen in the default theme?
