Add-on status update (2013-09-28)

Changes in the past few days

  • [fix] 'icons + text' mode (got broken a few days ago)
  • [change] removed checkbox options for bookmarks menu button, bookmarks sidebar button, history sidebar button, reload button and stop button. Buttons are enabled by default and can be moved to available toolbars or can be kept on customizing area, if not needed.
  • [change] removed option to move add-on bar items to the right. Flexible spaces can do the job.
  • [change] removed 'movable PanelUI-button' option. PanelUI-button is now movable by default.

Modifiy Australis UI #10 - findbar position

On current builds the findbar is at the bottom again. A new option forces findbars position on top or at the bottom.

Modifiy Australis UI #9 - spaces and flexible space

A while ago I got asked whether Australis can have spaces and flexible spaces or not. It can.

The only toolbar flexible spaces make sense on is the custom add-ons toolbar. Button can be 'moved' to the right for example.

This add-on contains 5 items for flexible spaces and 5 for 'normal' spaces at the moment. The images to indicate them are only visible in customizing mode (image #2 and #3).

Modifiy Australis UI #8 - tabs.drawInTitlebar #2

Recent UX / Australis changes caused an issue between application button (= Firefox button) on titlebar and browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar set to false. Disabling tabs in titlebar through TabsInTitlebar.allowedBy(...) argument also leads to same issue. See #882009.

The option application button on titlebar works, but the button cannot be on titlebar like it is with 'tabs in titlebar' enabled.

In this case the option application button on toolbar seems to be the cleaner solution.

Most users won't be affected by this, because browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is enabled by default and application button looks like it should.

Modifiy Australis UI #6 - tabs.drawInTitlebar #1

On recent UX builds the (Windows) application button (= Firefox button) can not be in titlebar anymore, if browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar is set to false. Most users won't notice this, because the option is set to true by default.

The upcoming add-on will support both browser.tabs.drawInTitlebar states true and false.

The corresponding setting still exists and can be accessed through about:config, but Mozilla will remove it one day. Thanks to Mike for providing a way to use this ui tweak even after its removal (in the future).

Iconsets for toolbar buttons on Australis / UX

The next version of 'Classic Toolbar Buttons' (v1.3) will have updated iconsets for all toolbar buttons currently available in UX builds.

Only toolbar button icons are replaced by this, not PanelUI menu icons.
