firefox won't change themes
I haven't found an answer for this anywhere yet...

I just installed firefox on my laptop running gentoo with fluxbox. I have tried to use the modern theme instead of default, but the theme never changes, I've even rebooted after telling it to change, but it still uses the default. I have tried to download a theme also, I chose it but it work either. Is there something I'm missing?

that is not common.

my firefox works ok with fluxbox or kde... can you debug further?

Are you trying to use an old firefox(or even firebird) theme with a newer Firefox browser? Because it does not seem to be backward compatible :(, at least, it was not when I last tried to use themes in Firefox :(

it's the latest firefox, just downloaded it today, and I got the theme by going to the preferences window and clicking get more themes, and I picked one about halfway down on the new site that loaded. It downloaded, installed, and said I needed to restart firefox before the settings would start. It also appears that it isn't remembering the history, or passwords, or the settings for the "Alert me when I send data unencrypted" etc.

well I got it to change themes now, it didn't apply the proper colors to the first theme I downloaded, so I got a few more and 1 of them is working properly, but it still won't use the modern theme.

And it is remembering settings now. I don't know what I did or didn't do :rolleyes:

If anybody has any ideas, I'm listening, but it's not a problem much for me anymore, just annoys me a little.
