More icon toolbar space in skin/better encryption visual - found 2 FF themes for this.

Anyone who has also run into trouble with upgrading themes like Silver
Skin which aren't yet available for 1.5, I searched around and found 2
skins that do what Silver Skin did for me. They are:

fusion_kai-1.0.20051207-fx-windows
aluminum_kai-1.0.20051207-fx-windows

found here:
https://addons.mozilla.org/quicksearch.php?q=kai&section=A&application=firefox

Silver Skin was my favourite as it clearly showed when one is on a
secure site. All skins do to one degree or another, but SS's change
to a bright yellow address bar plus large lock icon on the right-hand
side there made it very visual.

Also, the IE-style "links" bar in SS allowed me to fit 27 icons
w/minimal label txt. Most skins I've ever tried bump off 3 to 5
icons, depending on their icon size and spacing between.

Both these kai's allow me the 27 icons plus there's room for more if I
ever need to expand by one or two bookmarks there.

ps., there is a third skin that came up this morning when I looked for
the source URL for these 2 themes and it's called "Winsite Kai".
Haven't tried that one, but it's by the same author so will probably
be similar in functionality.

Cheers. :blush:D

Well, I decided to go ahead and try it, anyway. Should have waited to
post this thread <g>.

Though made by the same author, the Winscape one sucks for me. It has
the same look and colour as the default theme (b-o-r-i-n-g) and bumps
off 2 of my links bar icons. Still, others might like it.

You can override a skin's location bar colors by adding to
userChrome.css, in the profile's chrome directory. I like green for
high, yellow for low (though I rarely see low encryption any more), red
for broken.

#urlbar[level="high"] > .autocomplete-textbox-container {
background-color: #E8FFE8 !important;
color: #000000 !important;
}
#urlbar[level="low"] > .autocomplete-textbox-container {
background-color: #FFFFE8 !important;
color: #000000 !important;
}
#urlbar[level="broken"] > .autocomplete-textbox-container {
background-color: #FFE8E8 !important;
color: #000000 !important;
}
