My Firefox Setup (2014)

This post is mostly for my reference and for an associate who wanted to see an updated list, but hopefully it is useful to others as well. :)


Name Description License Development
Oxygen KDE Imitates KDE's Oxygen style. GPLv3 Inactive

I have a slightly modified version available for download which allows you to install it on recent versions of Firefox.

Additionally, I have a screenshot available if you would like to see how it looks.

Edit: Unfortuately, the Oxygen KDE theme no longer works properly as of Firefox 29. I tried using it with the Classic Theme Restorer extension and while some of it works there are obvious issues with the theme which need work.
