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.

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.:banghead:
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. :mad:

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.

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,

Merry Christmas!
