New Gradient xMas to Celebrate Christmas with Firefox

A new Firefox theme for Christmas, Gradient xMas, is in beta in Firefox Addons. To download, click here and sign in Firefox Addons. With dynamic snowflakes and the candy cane scroll bar and progress bar, this theme is definitely a good choice for decorating your Firefox browser this Christmas. Feel free to comment on this theme. The screenshot is placed below.

I've found a few bugs in my theme. And since I'm not an experienced developer, can anyone give me some idea of how to fix the problems?

1. The bookmarks favicon in the menu bar is too wide to see.

2. The AiOS title text bcomes invisible when rolled over. The sidebar menu is also invisible.

3. The source text for the Download Statusbar appears unreadable.

Can any developers please help me solve the problems? Because I am not too good at CSS, and let's make a good theme together!

1.0.5 Beta 1 Released & Ideas for Gradient iCool 1.0.5 Wanted!!!

For the current version of 1.0.4, it isn't much a success due to the issue with Twitterfox and thus it is not publicised by the Firefox Addons team.

The first beta version of 1.0.5, 1.0.5b1, is made available for download (link:

I'm currently working on the Gradient iCool 1.0.5, which is the next version, with a few bugs solved:
1. Compatibility with the All-in-One Toolbar
2. Invisibility in the search suggestions

There are a few features added as well:
1. Rich animations
2. New drop-down list
3. Removed border between the menu bar and the navigation bar.
4. More black backgrounds

This is going to become a highly-animated theme, with nice animations in the highlighted item in menu, also in search suggestions, URL bar suggestions, bookmarks bar (with AiOS), top panels (e.g. Option Panel), etc.

Below is the screenshot of the new version. Don't forget leave your comment on. And suggest the features you would like in the new version. Thank you for making us a giant step towards a great theme!

New Site to Celebrate the World Record of Firefox 3 & Gradient iCool 1.0.2

To celebrate the world record for Firefox 3, I established this new site together with Gradient iCool 1.0.2 for Firefox 3. You can download it now on the Firefox Addons Site and Softpedia. This new theme uses a Vista-native font i.e. Segoe UI. Segoe UI can be made available upon installing Windows Live Mail or Windows Vista and a lot of different ways (see I was granted the "100% Clean" Award by Softpedia (see this page). It's tested on Mac OS by the Softpedia team. The preview is shown below.
