the code you want to add to your userchrome is:

/* Hide "text" or "icon" in Bookmarks Toolbar */

#personal-bookmarks .toolbarbutton-icon {display : none !important;}

One good idea is to google the 'stylish' extension, because it allows .css changes to be toggled on and off, and is, in my opinion better than chome edit because it apples the changes on the fly.

Thanks for that link to "stylish". It just seem awesome. I can't wait to make over AS in a darker style (if I can figure out how to do it) :)

Thanks for the fix, savouryspacemonkey. I tried Stylish before. Have they made the option to remove that horrible icon from the statusbar yet?

It was mentioned above and in the guide - two ways

Stylish (easily edit the UserChrome files and apply changes on the fly)

smoovie: Its built into the site! =P

Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, and in the very bottom right corner there is a skin chooser, where you can select either the default Aqua or the alternate Graphite skins.

Change Font for your tab (Edit the font and size to your likings)

tab {

font-family: "Segoe UI" !important;

font-size: 10px !important;

font-weight: regular !important;

}

Change the Font for your bookmarks " "

.bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text {

font-family: "Segoe UI" !important;

font-weight: bold !important;

font-size: 11px !important;

}

I dont think this was said.. Change the size of your searchbar

#search-container, #searchbar {

-moz-box-flex: 200 !important;

-max-width: none !important;

}

i really like the fission progressbar found in mr.zeroeffect's eternal aqua and eternal aqua graphite skins. is it possible for me to use the same progressbar in the other skins like niqu, truth and lie ?

with the help of mr. zeroeffect's tips, i could only change the color of the progressbar but that isnt similar to the one in eternal aqua :(. does the EA skin use an image instead of color ?

Edit :

Never mind, i found it :D

Its discussed here - http://www.aqua-soft.org/board/showthread.php?t=33539

Adding "google" to your searchbar

1. Make a copy of the theme that you are currently using.

2. Open the theme with winrar.

3. Open the browser folder and find the searchbar.css

4. Find the section called ".searchbar-engine-image"

5. Edit the width to your personal preference. I used 65px because that was the width of the gif. Save it and there should a message that says " Do you wish to update the archive?". Click yes, this means that it is going to save directly into the theme.

6. Then, go into your c:programfilesmozillafirefoxsearchplugins and paste the google gif. If the new google gif doesn't overwrite the original, move or delete it from the folder.

7. Install the theme and there you go!

There is only one downside, the image does not go away when you click the search area, and the text begins after the image. But I personally don't use that searchbar, so if you want it to look good, then this is for you. :o
