    Aeroglass and firefox

    maicol07: the code works but it seems that Firefox 61 is totally buggy. It sometimes does not load userChrome.css at all, sometimes works, sometimes does not show window at all. And the frame is corrupted (e.g. no borders, no resize...) even without any userChrome.css. Previous version has no problem. (you can also try it without that line @namespace ...) Also you can try this code: @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); @namespace html url("http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"); #main-window { background: none !important; -moz-appearance: -moz-win-glass !important; } .titlebar-button { background-color: transparent !important; transition: background-color 0.2s ease; height: 25px; } .titlebar-button > .toolbarbutton-icon { list-style-image: none; } .titlebar-button:hover { background-color: rgba(117, 167, 215, 0.6) !important; } #titlebar-close:hover { background-color: rgba(255, 220, 220, 0.4) !important; } #titlebar-close:hover > .toolbarbutton-icon { list-style-image: url("chrome://browser/skin/caption-buttons.svg#close-white") !important; }

    Aeroglass and firefox

    try this in "c:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\yyy.default\chrome\userChrome.css" /* * Do not remove the @namespace line -- it's required for correct functioning */ @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */ #main-window { background-color: transparent !important; -moz-appearance: -moz-win-glass !important; } #toolbar-menubar, #titlebar, #tabs-toolbar { -moz-appearance: none !important; background-color: transparent !important; }

    aero glass for version 1803

    I use this in c:\Users\...\appdata\Roaming\Thunderbird\Profiles\.....default\chrome\userChrome.css /* Set the default namespace to XUL */ @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); #messengerWindow { background-color: unset !important; } #titlebar, #titlebar-content, #titlebar-spacer { background-color: transparent !important; } .titlebar-button { opacity: 0.25; transition: background-color 0.2s ease; } .titlebar-button > .toolbarbutton-icon { list-style-image: none; }

    Latest Win8.1 update breaks Aeroglass

    I wanted to try but unfortunately I have not Win8.1 installed anymore so I cannot test it. Is there something in the debug.log (with verbose logging enabled) ?
  5. I'm not sure if I correctly understand you. But moral obligation for what? Doesn't the software presented on my website work correctly on the stated version of operating system? Or do you think that the software developer is responsible for the situation when an user installs an operating system version that has never been claimed to be supported?
  6. Phenix: read the last Q&A here http://glass8.eu/guide
  7. If someone installs the Aero Glass into Program Files, it is only his problem that it is not able to download and store the symbols. It has been said milliontimes that it mustn't be installed there and even the guide mentions "Important thing is that you must place all files in writable location (i.e. not in Program Files),, because DWM process does not run under user's credential. If you don't do this, Aero Glass will not be able to download symbols". Also the note about debug.log "if the verbose logging is enabled" was not probably too bold and underlined.
  8. I think that I already wrote it some time ago, but the Microsoft implementation of the symbol downloading (symsrv.dll) has the bug if the download fails once for whatever reason (mostly internet connection failure), it will fail forever even the reason has already gone away. Thus I recommend to delete "Symbols" folder and try again... especially if there is download.error file somewhere. Also, the real reason of the failure can be found in debug.log if the verbose logging is enabled.
  9. Fine, I was able to reproduce the problem using the remote desktop, so let see if it helps to fix it
  10. It is Firefox bug that it does not accept system settings but always tries to imitate Win10 UWP appearance. You can tweak this behaviour by userChrome.css file, but the result will never be 100% correct. Example can be found here: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx

    Update to 16299.192 screws up aeroglass

    Yes, these versions should be correct if you have 64-bit versions of both DLLs. The exact reason of symbol failure can be found in debug.log if verbose logging is enabled.

    Update to 16299.192 screws up aeroglass

    Do you have correct symsrv.dll and dbghelp.dll?
  13. I would help and fix it but I don't see such issue on any of my computers. Does it happen in some specific situation? Multiple windows, UWP app window in way or something special?
  14. And? Does it say anywhere that it should happen? That Aero Glass should load something into control panel? You are free to fix it, but I understand that it is much easier to complain about other's work. Sure... really "many bugs" Again, you are free to do it :-P It was dropped to make a room for you to do it. Now, you have a chance to do better Aero Glass than me. This project was never meant to be profitable. But you should start working on your own Aero Glass now, so it is ready when I leave the project. But no, you will not do it, because you rather complain about other's work. If I leave, you will complain and then you move to some another project to complain...
  15. Then, you should not be too lazy and create your own Aero Glass software instead of complaining about so-called bugs which have absolutely no relation to Aero Glass and have never been promised to be the part of my Aero Glass software.
