Windows 7: Easy (but magnificent) webpage customization

24 Jun 2010   #1

Windows 7 Premium (64 Bit)
Easy (but magnificent) webpage customization

Well first off this is ONLY for Mozilla Firefox - I can't stress that enough.

1. Ok first of all navigate to here this is to the firefox addons page where you will get what you need.

2. Search add-ons for a product called 'Stylish' it looks like this:

3. Install it, restart Firefox, make sure it's enabled etc. ok so open it up. this is done by navigating to (in firefox) Tools>Addons>User Styles

It should look like this.

You want to be adding a new style but to do that we need the coding, which is easily found by clicking HERE Or clicking the 'Stylish' icon on the bottom right of your web browser window.

4. Ok for this example i will just be using a skin for youtube. So search 'youtube' and we will get a list of results (some unrelated) so we can skin youtube to make it look a little better. for the sake of it here is the youtube skin 'Dark redesign 2010' Youtube Dark (2010 Redesign) |

5. click on the button to open the code and copy all the coding inside that box.

6. Next open your 'Stylish' addon again through tools>addons or right click the icon in the bottom right of browser and click on 'Write new style' Give the style a title, add tags if you wish and paste the code in the code box.

7. Now click save and navigate to the website to see if it has worked!

End Result (hopefully!)

Google themes as well!

We know you can change your google background now which is awesome but how about the whole site? Including Mail, videos, image, maps.

It's not one of those stupid sites like or, look at the address bar.

Further Notes:

This addon isn't just a theme'r it can also be used to.

Disable flash images on sites
Disable ads on sites
Disable other various content on site
skin the tiniest details.
replace emoteicons in forums, twitter, facebook etc.
resize websites without them looking distorted.

What all have i skinned?:

Piratebay (to remove ads when my membership isn't on)

Basically i just found Styles to fit in with my Black/Matte look as some of you might have seen in other threads.

Can an Easy Transfer archive be used/read without using Easy Transfer?
This sounds like a dumb question, but here's the background. My daughter's XP laptop crashed (trashed hard disk that I doubt we can rescue much data from) and so we got her a Windows 7 computer. Unless we can rescue much of the old data from crashed XP, she's pretty much starting off empty. ...
