Native (looking) Firefox OS X widgets

(File under ‘obsessive browser theming’)

Following on from the previous post, I’ve made some improvements to the form widgets CSS for OS X. Phillipe pointed out to me how to add background images to tags by setting the border to solid 0px white, and the background colour to transparent. So, buttons, textfields and textareas can now look like this in Firefox:

New form widgets in Firefox

If you’d like to have a go at implementing this, you can download all the images and css here. All you have to do is put the files into your Firefox profile directory:
(users> you> Library> Application Support> Firefox> Profiles> yourprofilenumber> chrome>).

Pros:

Cons:

So its a step closer, and it does make a difference to using Firefox. Any PC reader (and maybe many mac users) probably don’t get why this is so important. Select menus, radio buttons and checkboxes are harder to alter though, so there’s a task for someone with more time than me!
