Firefox Personas

So, with the release of Mozilla Firefox 3.6, the browser now supports something called "Personas" - a way of changing how your browser looks on the fly without rebooting.

Currently, I'm wearing Ocean Atlantis- a really good Stargate Atlantis persona. But there are 1,560 pages of personas and counting. I tried out TardisFox (a great Doctor Who theme) for a while.

One of the coolest parts is that you can "try-before-you-buy," so to speak (even though they're free) - hover over a persona screenshot, and your browser will change so you can see what it would look like if you switched. Try it! It's awesome!

Anyway, that's what this thread is for. Post your persona! If you've uploaded one of your own, link it here! But don't forget -- we're counting on your recommendation to be good! :-P

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

You should get the Win7 theme for XP. Then get the rest of Win7. Then uninstall XP. Then it'll really look nice. ~ David Atwell

I have one that`s perfect for space fans called Celestial.

Cazaron , if you want to find out what it`s called click on Tools in the menu bar, then pick Add Ons from the drop down list. When you do this a small window will open . Click on the Themes tab and your Persona will be there. :wink:

Actually, I'm a little disappointed that "persona" just means a new header and footer images. I guess I was expecting a something a little more like a "theme".

The Persona add-on also works on FF 3.5.

I've never changed my FF theme; never really felt like it was necessary. Some designer worked hard on the layout of the UI; why should I mess it up? :-P

Some designers also worked hard (or not so hard, in many cases) on the themes. Why should you not give them a chance to impress you?

Some programmers worked hard on the ability to change the theme. Why should you not put their work to good use?

And how often do you use MS Paint?

I stand corrected.

But if you prefer Firefox with its default theme, that's your right, just as it's mine to customize the hell out of it*. That's what I love about Firefox :D

And Chrome's extension system is rather pathetic, really.

Oh, and only PdN actually lives on my taskbar. I just put those there. Bahaha.

*I wish I wasn't so schizo about my browser.

A bunch of the Firefox-themed personas are really well-made and pretty to look at. I was having fun for a long time just searching through.

Oh, and do I ever personalize this thing! :-P

:lol: Good thing I'm addicted to this forum as I learn new things every day. I spend a couple of hours surfing through some of the personas out there and some are really well made.

I played around with trying to make my own but kept coming up against the 300kb limit. Also the program is screwy as I have to pick a pre-made persona and then go back and set mine. It will not let me change them one after another.

:lol: I've always customized when I've found a way to do it. It really freaks out the tech people if I have to have my computers worked on.

I have to admit it would be nice to be able to be able to make my own themes for Firefox.

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure 'tis like a morn in spring.

In the lilt of Irish laughter you can hear the angels sing,

When Irish hearts are happy all the world seems bright and gay,

And When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away.
