You've outdone yourself. It's like looking into a volcano. If only we could skin our PC chassis like WB skins...

Wonderful! Just put the Firefox theme in, and love it! Has this been tested for Vista? Can I put it in without killing the machine?

wow just wow out-freaking-standing man! i should just call my computer "The Lava Machine" with the XP skin and the FF skin i don't even bother looking for anything else but updates from you. if i could rate this skin it definitely earned a 5 star rating. btw i found that i can change the color in WB so now i have red lava FF and blue lava Windows. it gives it a very interesting look when you have FF open...almost like a volcano in an ocean (see the desktop pic in my profile)...again i say outstanding work. only issue i can possibly find...the font is black on black

Thanks guys for the warm welcome. VistArtXPosed, send me your chassis and i'll skin it for you magic138, no danger to load it to Vista but there should be some issues...you could try it anyway. Bugs will be graphic ones, no real bugs expected. Anyway, i'm planning to make a Vista version, working on it... Todesgeber, looks nice in blue, already few people asked me to make my Firefox theme in a blue version.. Cool feaqture of WB, wish every app would have it! Oh, and about the black text, i'm aware of it but there's no way i know to skin this text color, if anyone knows how to change it, please share ... I'll be happy to update . That's why i made the background slightly brighter so it's visible somehow. You could always close the panel so it doesn't bother Thanks again for the feedback.

this is very beautiful, thank you. your firefox theme is also brilliant. some drop down menus are unreadable (whiteout). the walls are exceptional & appreciated with the very clever animation for my XP.

I use my taskbar vertical and this unfortunately leaves me with a white task bar. If I move the taskbar to horizontal it appears correctly. WB 7 beta on Win 7 build 7201

Ow ... i didn't really design it for vertical taskbar but i'll do it asap. At least for next version. Thanks for reminding me.
Comment #9 Tuesday, June 09, 2009 6:37 PM
About the vertical taskbar, sorry i don't have a ready image, i'll have to style it from scratch. For a quick fix, try to override the taskbar and start-panel in WB and use the ones from Dark Lava (previous version - you'll have to have it installed first) . It should work hopefully.

Here's a script i wrote that can take care of almost all visibility problems when using a dark theme (Windows theme or WB & Firefox) The easiest way to install is with Stylish, an extention for firefox that allow you to style the web as you like to. This Userstyle fixes all textboxes (on websites) to have a dark background with light gray text. It helps to avoid a common problem with dark themes when text becomes invisible on certain sites (light text on light background). I recommend to anyone using a dark theme & Firefox to try it.

Comment #18 Thursday, June 11, 2009 12:35 AM
Just tried Lavafox & loved it! I can actually read the context menus now! (My old theme didn't display any text on menus. It was hard to navigate.)
Comment #19 Thursday, June 11, 2009 6:26 AM
Thanks storm347 for the feedback. VistArtXPosed, happy you can see now If you'll have more areas where you cannot read properly, try the userstyle above (just need to install Stylish add-on and activate the userstyle). enjoY!
