Vista Glass for Firefox

GlassFirefox.png

For all you people who have been looking for a way to get Vista's glass effect in Firefox, look no further. Here is an extension for Firefox 3 that will do it. Please read this entire article before install this extension.

THIS IS ALPHA QUALITY

This extension is alpha quality, I whipped it together quickly.

In the javascript file I used a portion of the code from the MinimizeToTray extension. It's license stands for that portion that I am aware of.

Known Issues

It will work on the Vista Basic theme, but will not produce the blue toolbars as Windows Explorer does, this will still a work in progress.

Install

Download: Glasser Installer (XPI)

To install Glasser, first download the file, then drag and drop it to your Firefox window.

Options

I would like to thank Carl Booth for the Aqua personal bar, Relativity_17 for the heads up on the native theme element for Windows Mail/Calendar look, and ptmb for for the heads up on the native theme element for Windows Media Player look.

If you want the Windows Explorer, Windows Media Player, or Windows Mail style background on the personal toolbar, download GlasserExtras.zip. You can install the CSS files with either the Stylish Add-on, or by edit your userChrome.css file.

If you want to remove the menu-bar, try either Personal Menu or Hide Menubar. Both support using the Alt key to temperately show the menu-bar and Personal Menu lets you keep a button on the toolbar to gain access to the menus.

Source Code

XPCOM for DWM access source and the GeckoSDK

Source of the extension XPI (just the XPI with the ZIP ending and higher compression.

Final Note

I hope you folks enjoy this extension. If anyone has any suggestions or paths you wish to submit feel free, I'm look to improve this more.
