Note: Theme for Mozilla Firefox 2.0+
-------------------------------------------

There are a few good attempts to integrate Firefox in KDE. One is Mozillux (http://www.polinux.upv.es/mozilla/) and one is Mostly Crystal (http://www.tom-cat.com/mozilla/).

There are a few things needed to integrate Firefox in KDE and they will properly happen when Firefox 3 and/or 4 will be released. Right now four issues can be resolved.

1. The skin/theme:

Although the already mentioned projects solve the color, style and icons in Firefox, the only thing needed is to fix the icons, because the "GTK Styles and fonts" solve the other issues when you use the default Firefox skin.

That's why I took the default Firefox2 skin and only changed the icons. You can download the jar-file below. Just drap-and-drop the file in the Add-ons/Theme-dialog in Firefox.

2. The buttons are reversed:

The MS Window version of Firefox have the same order of buttons than KDE, but because the Linux Firefox uses GTK/Gnome somehow, the buttons are reversed. Put these simple lines in the following file:

/home/yourusername/.mozilla/firefox/yourprofilesubdir/chrome/userChrome.css

/*
* Reverse buttons for use in KDE
*/
.dialog-button-box { -moz-box-direction: reverse; -moz-box-pack: right; }
.dialog-button-box spacer { display: none !important; }

3. File dialogs:

People say this will be fixed in KDE4, meanwhile you can use KGtk: http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=36077 or use the howto on http://konquefox.free.fr/#trick_filepicker

Downloads can be fixed by the Flashgot extension (using KGet): http://www.flashgot.net/

4. Up-button and clear URL-button:

Please install the small extension Konquefox from
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2671/

Please enjoy!

Hello,

Thanks you for mentioning Konquefox, I have made a link in Konquefox website to recommend your theme for Firefox 2 users. It's the one I use now and it works fine, many thanks.

Note : I have added 3 zoom buttons to Konquefox to get closer to Konqueror style.

Best regards

Hi, if you edit the file nsFilePicker.js and then look for this code:

compMgr.registerFactoryLocation(FILEPICKER_CID,
"FilePicker JS Component",
//@line 278 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
"",
//@line 280 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
fileSpec,
location,
type);

and then modify like this one:

compMgr.registerFactoryLocation(FILEPICKER_CID,
"FilePicker JS Component",
//@line 278 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
FILEPICKER_CONTRACTID,
//@line 280 "/builds/tinderbox/Fx-Mozilla1.8/Linux_2.4.21-27.0.4.ELsmp_Depend/mozilla/xpfe/components/filepicker/src/nsFilePicker.js.in"
fileSpec,
location,
type);

and now install/uninstall an extension and restart Firefox.
The next time, you will have the kde file dialogs

Yes I know, but:

1. People must change thing manually in root
2. When Firefox is updated with e.g. Apt-Get (like in Kubuntu) the modifications will be undone.

Cheers,

Jeroen
