All work is distributed for free, but your donations allow me to continue development. Any amount is appreciated.

By downloading this theme you agree to the terms and conditions.

Firefox 7.x-8.x, SeaMonkey 2.x, Thunderbird 7.x-8.x
Older releases are available in the archives -- please note that the archives are not supported or updated.
While this theme may work on alpha, beta, or release candidate builds, those types of builds are not officially supported. Requests for enhancements will only be addressed on final release versions of Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey.

Theme Activation
If the theme does not activate, try disabling an extesion (any extension - it's the process that is important, not the extension), restarting the application and then enabling the extension again. This process of disabling/enabling an extension flushes the theme cache, which will cause the theme to work. I have personally tested this methodology on Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Thunderbird and confirm that the process works.

If you are having difficulty using Personas with this theme in Firefox, please direct your comments, complaints and questions to the following sites -- as the Firefox developers specifically set up Personas to only work with the default theme.

Icon Source
FOOOD created the icons used in this theme. The icons come from the iCandy Junior icon sets.

Theme re-written from scratch, using the light weight approach created by ShareBird. This methodology allows for inheriting all styles from the default theme, and only overriding the elements needed to create the custom theme. With this methodology, a single theme file works across Firefox, Thunderbird, and SeaMonkey. Future updates due to application releases should be trivial to perform.
