  • For this theme, install it select as theme
  • Restart Firefox then go to themes, right click foxdie>about then choose leopard and leopard, no other options are nesecary unless you choose to use them.

OR

LeoFox by neodesktop

Then Download the following plugins/extensions for firefox:

Stop-or-Reload Button - Combine the stop and reload button *install version 0.2.2

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/313

Fission - Statusbar/loading progress in Address Bar like in Safari

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1951

Autohide Statusbar

Click Install under the Installation section. A bar will pop up in firefox asking you if you want to allow addons to be installed from this site. click edit options and then allow.

Compact Menu 2 - Customised version of Compact Menu extension for Firefox 2. This replaces the original menubar into a single button or icon.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/4550

sometimes after uninstall of this addon your menus disappear completely...

OPTIONAL

TAB EFFECT - Add a cube spinning effect when changing tabs

You know have a safari emulation on your firefox that looks almost like the real thing (the windows version cannot be skinned to have mac like minimize close and maximize buttons so thats why safari emulation on firefox is still alive, and safari also still has lots of bugs :P ) None of the programs above where made by me so I hold no credit for them.

First, choose a color.

Change Color of Tabs

/* Change color of active tab */

tab{ -moz-appearance: none !important; } tab[selected=true] {

background-color: rgb(222,218,210) !important;

color: black !important; }

/* Change color of normal tabs */

tab:not([selected=true]) {

background-color: rgb(200,196,188) !important;

color: gray !important; }

I'm going to sound like a total newbie, but where do I put that? :P

Hi there, great topic! :)

I think here's the right place to ask a question about Firefox->Safari emulation.

I use Compact Menu and since I installed an update for it, I got this sh*t at the bottom of the browser. (

I also don't have acces to the "apple" button that contains in it the defailt Firefox menu.

Any ideas how to solve this?

Thanks in advance.
