History

#1 Updated by alant over 5 years ago

I didn't find a IE10 firefix theme. The closest to that seems to be FoxE9 (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/foxe9/) but it doesn't work well with current torbrowser (e.g. some UI elements overlap).

So my current plan would be to use anonym's suggestions on #7274:

Disabling the menu-bar. Then we get the Iceweasel menu button to the
left of the address bar, which isn't good, but I see no immediate way
to improve this.

Moving the tabs to right of the address bar and removing most other
controls, including the search bar.

This seems to happen in localstore.rdf

Using a Light Weight Theme similar to the one we use for the Unsafe
Web Browser but that instead of setting everything to red sets
everything to the same blue as in the title bar.

This is done by the following unsafe-brower code:

cat >> ${CHROOT}/etc/iceweasel/profile/user.js <<EOF
user_pref("lightweightThemes.isThemeSelected", true);
user_pref("lightweightThemes.usedThemes", "[{\"id\":\"1\",\"name\":\"Unsafe Browser\",\"headerURL\":\"file:///usr/share/pixmaps/red_dot.png\",\"footerURL\":\"file:///usr/share/pixmaps/red_dot.png\",\"textcolor\":\"#FFFFFF\",\"accentcolor\":\"#CC0000\",\"updateDate\":0,\"installDate\":0}]");
EOF

It is.

Minor issues :

  • the browser color is slightly diffrent from the WM decoration color, even though it is asked to be the same color. I guess some filtering happens and failed to find a way to "reverse" it.
  • the icons are not exactly the same as IEs
  • there is a "Tor browser" menu but I but in nxt to the tabs, which is the best I found.

I guess all these issues would be possible to solve in a real theme but that's work for a mozilla/XUL expert. See #7383.
