  1. I'm sorry to hear that. Somehow I achieved the desired appearance I was going for, but, I guess I'm missing a key step.
  2. So my instructions didn't work for you? Can you be more specific as to what went wrong?
  3. 1) Download + Install the latest version of Aero Glass, as well as the latest version of Firefox, obviously. If you're running Windows 10 May 2019 Update, you'll probably need the latest debug build of Aero Glass (currently version 1607). 2) Open File Explorer and head to C:\Users\<YOUR_USER_NAME_HERE>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ 3) In the above location, there should be a folder whose name ends with "-release" (e.g: "65p9thz2.default-release"). Navigate into it. 4) In the above location, create a folder named "chrome". Navigate into it. 5) Leave File Explorer for now and switch to your internet browser. Go to the following link: https://github.com/Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx/releases/tag/2.5.6 6) Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the "custom_css_for_fx_v2.5.6.zip" link to download a ZIP file. 7) Back in File Explorer, extract the above downloaded ZIP file to a temporary folder. Navigate into that folder and select all folders + files. 8) Copy + Paste the above selected folders + files into the "chrome" folder you created in Step #4. 9) Now, in the "chrome" folder, there's a file named "userChrome.css" along with a second file named "userContent.css". Both of these files need to be Opened + Edited with a text editor such as Notepad. Alternatively, if you're not comfortable doing such things, you can download both of these files, which, I've completed editing for you and uploaded them here. 10) Once these files are downloaded, you need to Copy + Paste (+ Overwrite) over the unedited versions of these same files within the "chrome" folder. 11) Launch (Or Exit + Re-Launch) Mozilla Firefox and make sure that the "Dark" theme is enabled. The "Default" and "Light" themes should be compatible too. Other 3rd-Party Themes are, unfortunately, a work in progress at the moment. 12) To revert to the original Mozilla Firefox User Interface, simply Delete the "chrome" folder originally created in Step #4. Or, you can rename it to "chrome_" (or any name you wish). 12) That's about it, I think, good day. userChrome.css userContent.css
  4. Not sure if anyone is after the Aero Glass-based Firefox Quantum tweaks (plus some classic ones) but I thought I'd share it with y'all in case you're interested.
  5. In case it helps, I updated my previous post to include Windows 10 (OS Build 17134.320). And I will do so again going forward, good day :-) ZiyaadMuhammad - You deserve credit for responding first, so thank you kindly :-)
  6. Direct Links for Windows 10 (OS Build 17134.285 + 17134.320) Symbols in .BLOB file format (rename to dwmcore.pdb). The exact names for the folders that need to be created are located in the center (copy + paste) of each corresponding OS Build. ==================================================================== Again, make sure to unblock every file you download (via File Properties) before using any of them. Or, alternatively, you can disable the security feature entirely if you wish. I use a frequently updated tool for Windows 10 called 'Winaero Tweaker' (available at www.winaero.com). It features a ton of VERY useful tweaks, and as far as I'm aware, it's freeware as well as free of bloatware. For what it's worth, I swear on my life that I am NOT affiliated with the development of this software, nor the hosting website, nor anything else other than the fact that I use it myself. So I'm not trying to plug my own work, or anything of that nature. ==================================================================== Back to the original topic at hand: Windows 10 (OS Build 17134.285) -- 7E2FFBA889DA4A0EEEC178DF672CE1B81 -- http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols/dwmcore.pdb/7E2FFBA889DA4A0EEEC178DF672CE1B81/dwmcore.pdb Windows 10 (OS Build 17134.320) -- 599E1538C2CCF8ECE275EE95CC1EE9C31 -- http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols/dwmcore.pdb/599E1538C2CCF8ECE275EE95CC1EE9C31/dwmcore.pdb
  7. One way: The following is not intended for Insider Preview builds of Windows 10. I'm assuming your AeroGlass install folder is the default location (C:\AeroGlass). Remember to ensure every file you download is unblocked (in File Properties) before attempting to use it. Ideally, re-run the attached .bat (Windows Batch) file (always as Administrator) which you've downloaded based on your CPU architecture (usually x64) after each Windows Update is downloaded, installed, and your PC is rebooted as required. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1) Download (+ unblock) and install Windows 10 SDK from the following link: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/windows-10-sdk 2) Open PC Settings and download + install the latest official updates for Windows 10. Reboot your computer afterwards if required. 3) Once completed Step 2 and logged in again, download the appropriate .bat (Windows Batch) file (based on your CPU architecture - usually it's x64) and run it as Administrator. 4) Press any key at the end to close the window. You should be done until the next update (you should have the latest symbols in question now), good day. ============================================= Edit: If I have time, I'll try to streamline it further (e.g: task .XML format), but this will have to do for now, sorry.

  8. Glad it worked - not sure about being awesome, but I try, have a pleasant day :-)
  9. Try this: 1) Go to your AeroGlass install folder, and then open the 'symbols' followed by the 'dwmcore.pdb' folders. 2) Create a new folder and label it exactly as follows: 7E2FFBA889DA4A0EEEC178DF672CE1B81 3) Click on the following link to download a .BLOB file with a long name: http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols/dwmcore.pdb/7E2FFBA889DA4A0EEEC178DF672CE1B81/dwmcore.pdb 4) Open the newly downloaded file's properties and make sure the file isn't blocked. 5) Rename the file you just downloaded to 'dwmcore.pdb' (without the quotes). 6) Cut and paste the renamed file to the folder created in step 2. 7) Click on the 'Retry' button in the 'Incompatibility Issue' window. Hopefully it'll work. If it doesn't, sorry, I tried, good day.
  10. Apologies for the very late reply - been recovering from emergency surgery. Perhaps the link in question was offline due to maintenance because I just clicked it and it appears to work as intended (a BLOB file is downloaded).
  11. See attached picture. The color chosen is black for both the active window and the inactive window. I believe 'Color Balance' is the same thing as 'Color intensity' in Windows 7.
  12. I assume you're talking about the registry entries located at [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\DWM] , yes? If yes: "glass color" aka 'ColorizationColor' = the color of an active window. "inactive glass color" aka 'ColorizationColorInactive = the color of an inactive window Did you read through the following link: http://glass8.eu/guide
  13. Sure thing, timia! I'll definitely take a good look and keep you posted. Also, you're very welcome and I'm glad we talk alike :-) I gotta run for now - take care!
  14. Hey timia, I hope you are well. Just wanted to let you know that I purchased a key for Windows Style Builder / Vista Style Builder for 25 euros, and with the aid of Mr. Grim's patches (bless that man), I'm using the latest version (it says " - Beta Build") to aid in the border thickness query, as it also is something I've wanted to hopefully-address for the theme that I use as well. Just thought I'd let you know that I am indeed investing my time and resources into this. It's the perfectionist in me. Probably undiagnosed OCD as well, LOL. So, erm, I promise I'll keep you posted about the border thickness and so forth, unless you tell me to shut up, and then I'll shut up. Take care, bye for now :-)
  15. You're very welcome. I suspect that there's a tree for the taskbar, and then another one for the start menu, and so forth. Or am I wrong? Either way, I'll know for sure soon enough.
  16. Indeed, that's the one. I don't mean to sound arrogant, but how hard can it be to use? I'll find out this weekend. I have a fair amount of experience with Stardock's WindowBlinds' counterpart (SkinStudio). Hopefully it's relatively similar (point and click for the most part). One thing is for certain: I no longer use WindowBlinds. Don't get me wrong: I admire Stardock's attempts to code a skinning engine for multiple versions of Windows, but in the process, many of their better (master) skins increasingly suffer from bugs as a result of (mainly) deprecated features. They ought to to start over and focus solely on Windows 10 + keep it streamlined. Just my two cents.
  17. Apologies to Aethelflaed for essentially repeating what he stated, nevertheless, I too would like to stress that the Settings window - as well as the latest version of Microsoft Office and UWP apps in general - are rendered differently compared to W32 apps. This is why they appear to be unaffected (or only partially affected) by AeroGlass and/or custom (third party) themes.
  18. Hey timia. I believe that the borders in question can only be modified by way of editing Windows Visual Style Files - each of which, contain the *.msstyles file extension. In order to do so, the only software I know of which MIGHT be able to modify the borders in question is Windows Style Builder. I say 'MIGHT' because I'm not certain how compatible it is with Windows 10 in general. I'm going to purchase a license this weekend and go from there. I'll be sure to keep you posted.
  19. BigMuscle, I just wanted to remind you that many of us are unconditionally grateful that you continue to update your software. Yes, the cumulative updates tend to throw a wrench in your schedule, however, I'm very glad that you haven't given up. Thanks for the update, and keep up the great work, cheers :-)
  20. I sincerely apologize for taking so long to respond to your question, AdamW. I was away on business. Sadly, I missed much of the World Cup as well, but I digress. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Regarding glass on Chrome, Blonk's post contains precisely that which I would have written for you, so thank you to Blonk :-) I also recommend that you might consider the following theme, which, is displayed in the included screenshot + linked below: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/f2b-dark-electrique-neon/dpcngmlhjpglhbdbomhggfdjebkgaoap I happen to contend that it's good-looking enough to share with y'all :-) Anyways, have a great day everyone!
  21. There was a new cumulative update for me from Build 17134.112 to 17134.137. 1) A new folder in 'C:\AeroGlass\symbols\dwmcore.pdb' needs to be created named as follows: D1149747277D9F7BA3C1C34E145203531 2) A new 'dwmcore.pdb' needs to be downloaded from the following link: http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols/dwmcore.pdb/D1149747277D9F7BA3C1C34E145203531/dwmcore.pdb 3) The downloaded .BLOB file needs to be renamed 'dwmcore.pdb' and copied to the folder created in the first step. 4) Click the 'retry' button in the 'incompatibility' popup window and it should work.
  22. Haha - well, God bless you for investing either way :-) Thank you!
  23. Aye, their presence can indeed be rather vexatious, especially if it has been repetitive and you've got a lot of work to finish up. I certainly don't blame you for ditching the debug DLL. Admittedly, I too have done so in the past. At the same time, I'm really grateful that we have BigMuscle around to continue working on AeroGlass. And I'm confident he'll release version 1.5.9 soon enough :-)
  24. You are a Platinum Sponsor after all. It was the least I could do, have a good day :-)
