We can't draw in the titlebar, period. These points are not possible.

However some further customization is possible using a userChrome.css file - for example this is how my White Moon looks (in Windows - it looks similar in Linux but with matching control buttons top right, rather than the ugly Windows ones):

The point that you're replying to is in reference to macOS, not Windows. We have full control of the titlebar in Windows, but not Linux and only in a very broken way on macOS (in the sense that if we try to draw there it removes the caption buttons).

Lootyhoof, are you investigating the issue of bookmark bar icons/favicons blowing up to huge sizes on the Mac? Any results?

Pale Moon 27.3.0 for Mac is out now, will give White Moon ver. 2.0 another try & will give feedback in case the issue still persists.

Is this issue in the new version?

If so, is there anything in common about the issue in terms of how it occurs? Do all the icons get bigger or only some? Do you have a screenshot?

I'm sorry, I failed to take a screenshot when the issue was there. Currently the issue is not present (Pale Moon 27.3, White Moon 2.0, OS X 10.11.6), but then again this was the case with Pale Moon 27.2.1 as well for a month or so. I expect the issue to reappear though. Going back to White Moon 1.6.4, updating to Pale Moon 27.3 and updating to White Moon 2.0 once more seems to have fixed it for now.

Still, please investigate it, Lootyhoof. Should you have changed any code in relation to the bookmarks bar during the transition White Moon 1.6.4 -> 2.0 I suggest you revert this change.

There are some issues with XMoon theme (1.5.1). The theme is picking up background, selection and highlight colors from the system theme, and in some cases these colors may not play so well with the other theme colors.


1. Text is almost unreadable in the menus. So probably theme should define a color for the menu background.

2. Text selection and highlight color in the images below is red-ish (taken from system theme). It should ideally be theme blue.

My Setup: I'm using Numix GTK theme with XFCE desktop environment on Arch Linux. Pale Moon version: 27.1.1

Aeromoon, Compact Moon (theme only), Darkness, DarkPitch, Fox 2 The Moon, Littlemoon, Maxi3, Maxi4, MicroMoon, Moonfox3, Moonola, Nauticalia, Noia Moon (theme only), Opresto, PMChrome, PMOpera, Qute Large, Qute Legacy, reinheit, Tangomoon, Tangerinemoon, White Moon and XMoon have been updated. Details for other themes will follow in their respective threads. This is primarily to add full support for Pale Moon 27.3's Permissions Manager, while in many cases improving styling in about:support ("Troubleshooting Information" page) and fixing double "learn more" links in notification popups.

Full details can be find in the changelogs on the respective theme's GitHub repos.

I saw this just before I released, so was able to slip in a quick fix for the main issue here (illegible text). This in particular should be fixed in v1.6.0. :thumbup: Further research will be required for the selected text styling. Thanks for the report!

For the record though, for the time being I cannot fully support dark system themes in combination with this theme, as it is not yet fully optimised for use on Linux. This will hopefully come in time.

Thanks for listening and making the changes to improve the theme's usability on dark system themes. However, I cannot find the updated version on http://addons.palemoon.org/addon/xmoon/. The add-ons site still prompts the older version to install - "Install XMoon 1.5.1".
Normally how long does it take for the updated theme to appear on APO?

Whoops, I'd uploaded it but hadn't updated the details server side.

It should be available now. Sorry for the confusion!

Lootyhoof, I am using Darkness theme but the "check" marks on "Restore Session" page are hard to see (because their colors are black in black background).
They should be white or grey.

Another issues:
2. "Stop/cancel Download" button in Download notification (if you press Download toolbar icon, it would show up).

Thanks.

Thanks, I'll look into it.

For the second issue, can you show me what you're referring to? The stop download button is present:

This is it.

Why is it only blank grey button?

The icon for a stop button, especially within media, is universally recognised as a blank square.

I see.

It confuses some advanced users because the context here is computing ("Downloading"), not media (audio-video) for sure. :)

I'm afraid the industry at large disagrees with you. ;)

Even the default theme uses standard play/pause icons (rotated triangle/double vertical bars) for download actions.

Lootyhoof, thanks for the update.

Two questions: 1. Is the "About Pale Moon" window intended to be all "dark" (I mean, only show the texts)?

2. Could Pale Moon's theme engine show "fading effect" in tab title (like in Firefox's FT DeepDark)?

I'm...not sure what you mean here.

Most likely, though I'm not sure what you're referring to. Can you show me?
