Xfce, Xfce-winter theme & firefox problem.


I've started using Xfce and was trying out different themes when I found that when I used the Xfce-winter theme and started firefox my font when typing a search was invisible. Has anyone experienced this too? This only happens with this theme, I've also tried Seamonkey and it's the same.

Thanks.

Angry Themes, WIndow Manager & Mouse Cursor.

I've not had the fonts disappear, yet, but other things have gone wrong.
In Xfce I like the combination of the Agua window manager, Leopardish Theme and LeopardX icons, but with Xfce 4.8x, there was a problem with the mouse cursor and window manager disappearing from one sign-on to the next.
I thought that was all behind me with 4.10, but just a few days ago, the exact same thing happened again. So I deleted the configuration files and started over from scratch using all the defaults. It happened again 24 hours later.
So, I rebuilt it again, and again, I'm using the defaults, but if the mouse and window manager go missing again, Xfce is going into that great trash bin in cyberspace.

Thanks for the reply cwizardone, one thing I did do is install a theme for firefox called 'FT DeepDark 5.4' . I'll disable it and try it that way, another question is where do you put themes from the Xfce site? I looked at ~/.config/Xfce* but no luck.

Thanks.

Globally you would want to put them in /usr/share/themes and the icons in, /usr/share/icons. You can also place them in ~/.themes and ~/.icons.
Apparently you have already found, http://xfce-look.org/


Merry Christmas!
