Default Styling the Fox

Since I installed Stylish for firefox together with Vertical Tabs I was looking for styles that made the whole fox look nice and dark.

After finding out that there either wasn't a single style that did this OR I had to install a dozen styles that would work against each other I decided to write my own style.

Anyway. If you have Stylish + Vertical Tabs + a Dark/Black Persona/theme, please check out it out.

http://userstyles.org/styles/47643/t...round-and-text

Also. Suggestions for improvements and other options/colorings are welcome.

And for those that don't have the above mentioned collection

Well, not Firefox-dedicated solution, but you might want to install the Royale Noir theme, if you have Windows Xp. That one is free, an original M$ theme, and most important of all: dark. Also there are those 'personas' which can add to the depressed mood. I hope this was useful.

EDIT: it seems not really, but I leave this post to be for the sake of others looking for help for that

When I was on WinXP I did had the roil noir theme.
Now on Win 7 I've just set my aero to as black as possible.
I also don't think that the black setting is depressing.
(not if you do it right. )

I think I HAVE checked that Nasa them once.
Also used a Persona Called "Area 51 black" for a while.
But now I have no need for theme's/persona's, since I've figured out how to paint the toolbars with style code.

I've just made some BIG edit's to the style.

You can now choose Different colors for your Toolbars and Tabs.
Including an all out transparent For a very glassy look.

I'd like to see the style code for that.

I'll share it with you eventually, but it is really a mess right now. I also need to know if I am seeing the same things everyone else is seeing. I mean, am I fixing stuff (for me) to look at that would make someone else's browser look messed up?

I am really only doing this for the edutainment aspect of it. Well, and to fix the way I can finally see Abandonia without all of the stuff that has been bugging me for a while.

ooohhh. Now I really want to see the style code.
Maybe I can find a few bugs.

And I'm only using Stylish for the fun, getting my fox look cool and learning some coding along the way.

I don't know if it is really style, or code for that matter. In either case, it is not my creation, just my modification.

As far as bugs go, I am more concerned with changing something like this:
Code:
  font-weight: bold !important;
  font-style: normal !important;
  font-variant: small-caps !important;
  font-size: .90em !important;
  line-height: 1.2em !important;
  font-family: Tahoma, Sans-serif !important;
into this:
Code:
  font: bold normal small-caps .90em/1.2 tahoma, sans-serif !important;
It's lunchtime on Friday here. I'll PM you with what I have accomplished early Monday morning. K?
