Great Theme! I love it, it's just amazing, but a few things are working well for me.
Any ideas, why the tabs have just the white icons? And how can I get rid the "Lesezeichen" (Bookmarks) Icon in my bookmark toolbar - I mean the blue book with the yellow star.

Hello BoneyardBrew !

First of all, congratulation, this is good customising and everyone one who tries my computer is jealous of the theme :p

But for 2 versions now I have this little annoying white dot I can't ged rid off.... Here is a screen shot : [link]

I thought at first that it was a bug which would be quickly resolved but no one seems to have the problem... Would you know where it comes from and how to get rid of it ?

Precisions :
This comes before I instal the stylish extention, and I have now glasser or any else "glass"-like extension.

One of the best skins I've seen so far! Amazing work!
Tell me, it's possible to put the Firefox button in the title bar, just like in the new Opera?

Thanks a lot!

Right now it's not possible to put the Firefox button in the toolbar, but in 4.0 this will be possible.

How do (or can you) you make the strata buddy go on top where the window title is (like in here>> Win7-(Aero)-(BottomTabs)-(BookmarksBar).png )?

Beautiful style, but I all my selected tabs (also in firefox settings) have an abnormal background color. So they do not appear with round edges but with a square of blueish color behind the tab.
See:

Does anyone have the same problem? And how can I solve it? Thanks!

Latest nightlys killed the tabs on top style, adds a big white empty section on top, and stratabuddy messes with tab's right click menu, there isn't one when you click tabs, it's all in the right click menu you get when you right-click page content instead, also I have no progress icons, the space were the favicon appears when loaded is empty until it loads, also the progress line under the URL field doesn't show anymore. Gecko/20100319 Minefield/3.7a4pre and 3-4 versions prior.

Screenshot of the issue: [link]

Top 2 options work fine (default & alt tab background) tried disabling every add-on except stratabuddy, including stylish, with the same result.

Gecko/20100320 Minefield/3.7a4pre
StrataBuddy 0.6.1
Strata40 0.6.1

The tab bar is essentially shifted from where it's supposed to be (on top) to bellow the bookmarks bar, leaving a white space where it's supposed to be.

I use 3.7a5pre and solved this problem. Tabs should be simply set "by default", not "on top (white)".
As for me, I have another problem. Button "Bookmarks" on the panel works, but shows nothing. Bookmarks are still there, but this button from stratabuddy doesn't show them. How can I solve it?

Not really a solution, I use tabs on top and that's what I was reporting an issue with.

This is as good as it gets. Best FF theme there is. However... the white border on the latest version is really bad with darker OS themes/styles ([link]).

Keep up the good work!

I love Stratabuddy. Well done.

- PLEASE add back the ability to have the recent history drop marker in the omnibar. I don't like it in the new menu. If you won't, can you fork the addon so those of us that do use it won't be out?

- In Crystal mode when you have lots of tabs open the "overlapping" of the tabs looks awful.

- How about retaining the Page and Tools buttons for those that want them? it would also be great if the buttons used icons and not text - localization, real estate, etc.

- The app button I prefer is the smallest possible. Style 6. Could you add another option that draws no button or tab but uses the extra space to just draw a larger FF icon with a drop down marker next to it?

Thanks for your great work!

I love everything about this theme! I think the part I like the best is the Aero. There's one thing I don't get though, what is the progress lines for the stratabuddy? I've turned it on and off and haven't noticed any differences.

Informational Tabs has a few features that are still compatible with strata40 and stratabuddy (which are worth getting rid of Tabs Mix Plus for) and besides that in combination with App Tabs, the whole package looks and feels sooo right :D

Hey, graet addon... I want to ask you for help...

I know... the items for "App Menu" are in chrome/content/StrataBuddy-mainmenu.xml... if I want to add some item (for example, Downthemall, chatzilla, mozilla weave menus)... what's the syntaxis?... is it possible to add more items...

this needs more support for the personalmenu button addon.
When you add the personalmenu button to the bookmarks bar the height of the bookmarks bar goes a bit strange.
They implement the menu button a lot nicer with the personal menu, no offence.
Also the tab scrolling buttons have got all ugly now. Everything else is great.
This should be altered for people who have the tab bar not always set to open.

Also whatever happened to the square back and forward buttons?

this is how I made it look before the updates. Only thing I wanted to change with it before was the vertical gaps between toolbars but i guess i was ok with them. If you want i can send you the modified files.

Tabs on top gives me very weirdly placed tabs, they're overlapping a bit and not quite on the bar, and move when hovered etc.

Curious though? I tried updating my version .1.6.9c to the beta .6 but noted that Mozilla's website only lists .1.6.9c ...am I missing something?

I have a small but. Everything is awesome, works great. till you start typing into the URL bar. at this point the go button appears and overlays over the reload button, both are visible at the same time.

Any ideas on a fix? P.S. no stylish extensions that have anything to do with the URL bar...

After you install the addon and the theme, right click under the URLBar and click customize. Then drag the buttons onto the toolbar.

Could you add the option to change the progressbar color? I like the idea of changing it to blue, like the progressbars from the Windows 7 Betas, as well as matching the WindowBlinds I use.
