Firefox 5, 6 TabsToolbar Fix by dpcdpc11 Firefox 5, 6 TabsToolbar Fix by dpcdpc11

UPDATE: Firefox 6 Fix added... please redownload!!!



DOWNLOAD HERE

or use the download link from deviantArt!

So here's a fix for something that gave me nightmares for sooo sooooo sooooo long!!!
But I've finally manage to find the bug.


I'm talking of course about the Tabs Toolbar problem.
Using Windows7 Styles with 1px left/right window frames made the Tabs Toolbar (top window frame) to go blank when hovering over certain elements and when browsing certain websites.
The problem could not be fixed in the win7 Styles because they had not problem to be fixed in the first place.

So knowing that a certain alpha nightly build of Firefox 4 used to work just fine with these kind of win7 Styles, I've started to dig up into the code of Firefox 4. I know the problem has be inside the browser.css file... so after a few hours later... EUREKA!! There it was the nasty code line that was giving night mares are ruined my themes:

#main-window[sizemode=normal]:not([inFullscreen]):not([disablechrome]) #tabbrowser-tabs[tabsontop=true] > .tabbrowser-arrowscrollbox > .arrowscrollbox-scrollbox > .scrollbox-innerbox:not(:-moz-lwtheme) {
position: relative; }


All I had to do is to comment out this code and now everything seems to be working flawlessly!

Please confirm if the fix works for you or if you encounter any bugs.

Known issues:
- none in FF5... at least from my tests except for using this position: fixed to position the #appmenu-button-container in Stylish.
- issue with the sidebar opened (bookmarks, history etc.). Mozilla team can suck my balls for this! I would recommend you to stay with FF5 untill FF9 is released. You won't get noticeable changes so there's no reason for updating! FF7 will introduce something news regarding the way system memory is managed... but as always when something news comes along, bugs are present as well.

HOW TO:


1. Go to your firefox installation folder and backup the file omni.jar. For those using Firefox Portable you can find the file at: FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\
2. Unpack the content of this archive
3. Copy the file omni.jar from the archive to the root of your Firefox installation folder, or for those using Firefox Portable copy the file to: FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\
4. Start you Firefox browser and browse along without having to worry about the Tabs Toolbar ever disappearing again!

Hi, I know this visual style is few months without any updates, so don't know if it is still alive at all, but I experience one issue> I cannot open any menu in Firefox.
- If click the orange main button
- If using ALT the standard menu appears, but when using keyboard arrows and ENTER keys try activate some menu
- If try to show context menu using right mouse button
-> Then in all cases described above it seems the menu panel appears for few miliseconds (just blick :) ) and then it disappears.

Anyway very nice visual style, thanks.

firefox 9.01 here. No news?

I was using it before without any visual trouble. Was a ff 9 updated, and your theme was installed at an early version with no fixes at all. So, A year ago, when I installed firefox for first time on this machine, have any trouble. Updating several versiones at his come up don`t change anything. Now I formated and reinstalled the system, installed ff9, and the problem is there.

I know... FF9 is here and FF10 is coming soon, then FF11 and soon after FF12 which I'm currently testing.
I'm giving up on this one. Every new version is even fucked up compared to the previous and it's a real headache to find the fix.
The idiots at Mozilla keep screwing this great browser with idiotic ideas which are driving theme's crazy!

hi man, can you tell me which .css file that you edited? Unlike the fix of thunderbird which contains the edited files, your FF fix doesn't have any so I couldn't work out which file that I need to work on if I want to try the mod myself. thanks

Tried different mods in browser.css in omni.jar but can't find a fix for the sidebar problem... damn fucking mozilla developers!
Brainless fucks, they keep changing the css files so damn chaotic that ruins my windows theme!
I'll try the beta/alpha versions 7 or 8 of Firefox and see how those work... maybe the made some useful change for a change! Now just to get some time to do this.

If I find something I'll update this thread.

I'll check it out... interesting... my firefox doesn't 'see' the update. I guess I'll have to upgrade manually.
By the end of the year Firefox will outnumber chrome in version numbers... dumb idiots! Just what I need... an new version of Firefox with almost nothing new and no new features just a handful of fixes, every month.

Yeah, that would be a lot of work :/ personaly Im thinking of switching to another browser. However every browser present glitches using your theme (I know it's not your theme's fault, the same happens with other non glassy themes), the only broswer that seems to handle your theme well is... IE9, so no real option for me.

I know this must be annoying for you. But I (And Im sure many think the same) think your theme it's the best W7 available for those of us who dont like glass. I truly love it.

I'm using Chromium more and more which btw hasn't got any problems with my nonglassy themes. The one that works best is Minimal Taste Reloaded wBorder.
But Chromium misses many basic features like bookmark sidebar or built in Search as you type (I have to use a crappy extension for that)... not to mention the shitty autoscroll.

And thanks for your appreciation... still didn't have the time to checkout the FF6 update.

Impossible... if ur using the default theme then it works!
If you're using a custom theme, of course it's not going to work.

doesn't work in thunderbird... I had to make other modification there in these files inside omni.jar:
addressbook.css
messengercompose.css
primaryToolbar.css

Forgot to post the fix for thunderbird... been much too busy lately.
Gonna post it later on... stay tuned!

I know about pale moon... it still uses the old firefox file structure... omni.jar is just an archive which hold other archives... these archive are in the folder Chorme in Pale Moon... search through these archives the files: browser.css and replace it with this one: [link]

Hey man, really sorry if I'm annoying you, but this is getting difficult. There's no browser.css, but there's a browser.jar. I finally manages to open it and indeed there's a browser.css inside, but I cant edit it not extract it. Already tried 7zip, winrar and stuffit expander. I dont know what to do.

simple my friend... use total commander... temporary change the extension of the jar files to zip and open the files in total commander... hit F4 (Edit) after browsing to browser.css, edit what you want, then save the file and close the editor. Total commander will then ask you if you want to update the file in the archive. Hit Yes, then Overwrite and you're done!

I can't seem to reproduce the same situation... just tried the same theme and opened the same page that u did in the screen shot and hovering the favorites link... nothing happens.
Did you upgraded Firefox to a new version by any chance? If yes, the you need to copy the omni.jar file and overwrite it again.

It was Less Chrome HD, a beta addon by Mozilla Labs. I was using Awesome Bar too, but this didn't affect the patch. Thanks

LessChrome seems a good addon for narrow displays like laptops or netbooks... on a big desktop display it only gives me one click more to reach the information I need.

dpcdpc11 Featured By Owner Jun 2, 2011  Professional Interface Designer
yes it does but I can't really explain why... for me if something doesn't work right, then it's a bug... so I consider this a firefox bug... but then again the firefox 4 interface was made for the default aero theme... so you can blame me for making different windows 7 themes.
