Windows 7: How to get Firefox 3.7 look with version 3 to 3.5

How to get Firefox 3.7 look with version 3 to 3.5

Make Firefox 3 or 3.5 look like the Firefox 3.7 new theme mockup

by Lee Mathews Jul 24th 2009 at 10:00AM

Well, that sure didn't take long.

Just days ago Mozilla posted a few conceptual images displaying a new default theme for Firefox 3.7. Thanks to DeviantArt user Boneyard Brew and his friends, you can now tweak your existing Firefox 3 install (provided you're not running 3.6) look pretty dang close to the mockups.

You'll need to grab a couple things to pull off the transformation:

The end result is pretty faithful to the mockup. Pull the switcheroo and confuse your pals - tell them you got your hands on an early pre-alpha (Make it more convincing with a quick Titlebar Tweak)!
Further instructions from Tweaking With Vishal:

If you want the same look in your Firefox 3.0 or later, follow these simple steps:
STEP 1: First download the theme using following link:
Download Mozilla Firefox 3.7 Theme
Its a ZIP file. Extract it using WinRAR or 7-Zip (both can be found in our "Downloads" section). You'll get a .ZAR file which contains the actual theme. Drag-n-drop this file to "Add-ons" window in Firefox and it'll install the theme.
STEP 2: You'll also need to install the "All Glass Firefox" add-on to get the Glass effect which can be found here.
STEP 3: If you also want to get the "Tools" button near "Searchbox" as shown in the screenshot, install "Personal Menu" add-on using following link:
Install Personal Menu
It'll add the "Tools" button near searchbox. Now right-click on empty area near addressbar or searchbox and select "Customize" option. Now drag "Bookmarks" button between searchbox and Tools button.
Now go to "Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions" menu and select "Personal Menu" from the list. Click on "Options" button and go to "Advanced" Tab. Enable "Hide Drop-Marker" option. Also enable "Hide Menus Toolbar" and "Show temporarily by pressing ALT key" options to hide menubar.
STEP 4: If you face problem while reading text on inactive tabs, you'll need to apply the code given in "newtabfix.txt" present in the downloaded ZIP file using "Stylish" add-on.
Install Stylish
Once installed, copy the code from TXT file, click on the "Stylish" icon present in Statusbar and select "Write new style -> Blank style" option. Now paste the code in text area. Provide a suitable name to the style and click on "Save" button. That's it.
After following these steps, you'll enjoy the same interface in your favorite browser.

Win 7 Ultimate x64

thanks for posting the instructions... looks real nice on my dark-themed Win 7 background. i'd like to add one minor checkpoint: i had to disable the "Use Small Icons" setting with the "Customize Toolbar" option so that the Stop, Reload, Home, etc. buttons would appear correctly (e.g., correct size, neatly aligned, etc.).
