Shouldn't "fork of Noia 4 theme by Aris" be included in theme and extension descriptions?

I installed v1.0.2 and found the add-new-tab button all the way to the right on the tabbar. All other themes show the add-new-tab button to the immediate right of the last tab. I then tried both prior versions of "Compact Moon" and even the original "Classic Compact" theme. All four theme versions have this same issue. And, I don't know if this is a new issue, or I just didn't notice it before.Lootyhoof wrote:I've just released v1.0.2 of Compact Moon
It would probably be easier in this case to port the entire theme and just use default icons where required, as if it were done in the style of CTB/NB it would just switch the icons used on the toolbar. All I'll say is, never say never.riiis wrote:Many thanks for your consideration.Lootyhoof wrote:I did consider trying to port it over ... but it would take time to do so, and I'm not so sure if it can be done, due to the amount of new icons required in the porting process.

Let me pose an alternative theming option. Currently, we have complete themes, which change much of the UI. And, we have light themes, which change the main browser page headers and footers, and a few other things. Can we also have "half themes", which mainly theme the main browser page, and perhaps (but not necessarily) the add-on manager, options, and library pages-- where users spend most of their browsing time? You could even characterize these themes to the user, beforehand, as "half themes" or "partial themes" or "limited themes". Doing so would permit the more efficient porting of older Firefox complete themes-- which may be icon-poor-- while retaining much of the look and feel of these old themes.
Note such add-ons as "Classic Toolbar Buttons" and "Noia Buttons", to some limited extent, already do such alternative theming.
Using a clean profile, both themes installed and ran without issues. The "Open a new tab" buttons, in both themes, are now in their proper place, to the immediate right of the last tab.Lootyhoof wrote:Can you try these again with a clean profile, just to be sure? It all works fine for me, which is odd. I've not even changed anything in how I pack them or anything related to the new tab code.
