Best FF 2.0 theme?

I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I have been reluctant to upgrade to FFP 2.0 soley because I cannot find a good looking theme. I'm currenly using SaFire and unfortunetly the theme has not been update to 2.0 and I cannot find another theme that I like.

I've looked at all the themes of Mozilla, and still no luck. Anyone have any suggestions?

Minifox

I use MiniFox. I like the smallness of the buttons. I can cram a lot into a little space. http://membres.lycos.fr/sethnakht/#minifox

Classic Compact

Same principle, but a little more spread out. Minifox feels cramped to me.

My favourite

Seriously, I like Planet Mir, but it hasn't been updated yet.

Are you being sarcastic?

Are you being sarcastic? The default theme really is my favorite. I find no reason to burden firefox with loading custom themes when the default works perfectly fine and is not visually unappealing. Long live the default!

Overall, I like the default

Overall, I like the default theme in Firefox 2. I do like Kempelton's options window way more than the default theme's but since I rarely go in the options, I'll settle for the default theme which I like better in the overall browsing window.

Nice theme

Finally a decent looking theme! I like it, but I've settled for Orbit Yellow 2006. It's been well designed except for the fact that you cannot see the focused tab easily. However since I use TabMixPlus I've bolded the active tab to make it a bit more obvious.

I like Kempleton's options menu.

You think 50 is a lot?

I usually have at least 130 tabs open Wink
Mind you, they are all on a single row with the scroll buttons Shock

I thought

he might have some extension allowing him to place his tabs wherever he wants. Wink
BTW If you're used to surf "tabbed", it really sucks when you have to work on a PC with IE without tabs!

I have Tab Mix Plus. I like the multi-row setup so I can get to any tab quickly. It works well since I don't typically have an insane amount of tabs open at any one time.

The IE7 'New Tab' thingy

is cool- I hope someone, or maybe Tab Mix Plus, can duplicate it on Firefox.

a statement from Ryan would help to clarify this tricky situation.

Of course!

I am definitely serious. Here's how the tabs usually are:

  • 20-50: PHP Manual
  • 10-40: PortableApps.com
  • Around 30: Web Design sites, ALA, etc.
  • 5-10: Localhost
  • 1-5: Colour choosers (I usually use DefMech's choosers 1 and 2
  • 0-20: Other

Woah, how does the tab drop-down menu thing on the tabbar look like when you click on it with that many open? (Mind showing a screenshot?)

Actually

My computer has just been turned off for the night.
I'll take a screenie in the morning.
Anyway, it just has a little arrow at the bottom to scroll it, like the bookmarks.
Edit: Had to turn on to do something, here it is:

Wow.

Ryan,

It is like you have exposed yourself to the world. I feel kinda icky looking at another man's browser.

Have you ever heard of closing a tab when you're done with it?

That's my largest problem.

For anyone wondering, that "6%" is not Web Developer (the bar below), it's Net Usage Meter which shows how much of my download limit is used for this month. The little black arrow on it is where you should be, supposing you download the same amount each day and you don't go over the limit.

I have a new tab button right above the close tab button, cause it makes sense. I usually middle-click unless I want to look up something different.

Up the top is the usual button, next to the stop is "Stop! Hammer Time", Adblock Plus, Net Usage Meter, Web Developer extension and the history and new tab buttons at the end of that.

Down the bottom is Download Statusbar, StumbleUpon, a colour chooser, CookieSafe (hidden by tab dropdown), Greasemonkey (hidden by tab dropdown) and Firebug.
