  • Firefox look better in fedora than windows vista?

    For the first time ever I installed Fedora WITH GUI which normally I don't and obviously never seeing its GUI I must say firefox looks much better than it does on windows but....
    Why?

        That just depends on which distro you use. Instead of posting after your own post please use edit and update your post? Thank you.

            I don't know. I have never liked the default style of Firefox. Not really to my liking. Even though I don't use it as my default browser, I always change the style when upgrades are needed.

                Here's a screenshot of firefox2 on my mac. The reason I like it is because it has no distracting toolbars, no flashy colors, and simply has the few buttons I want. Everything else is done through extension / addons or rightclick and appear on the toolbar when required. Simple, clean and works.

                  Agreed; although I use smaller icons for the browser control, I like the way it looks.

                    I have to disagree. I really don't like Firefox on the Mac at all. It doesn't use Quartz, so it blends terribly into Aqua. Firefox 3 is better, as it will be using some native APIs for better integration, but overall, I prefer Camino for when I need a Gecko-based browser.

                      If you really want to have a clean UI, you can download the UI Tweaker extension. I use it to merge my Reload and Stop buttons into one, and get rid of the Go menu and button.

                      I'm not seeing the reason behind not showing the browser (or even OS) in the fullscreen. It seems to me more of a "look at this image, I have this many OSes going at the same time just like in that thread I made!!!one one one" :\

                      I'm not sure how many supported themes are available for the Mac, but I've found several that claim to mimic an Aqua theme. Some of these claim to work on Mac though:
                      iPox
                      GrApple - Eos, Eos Pro


                      Regarding Firefox 1.5.0.10 being used on Fedora, it's because they do not consider 2.x stable enough until it's been tested a bit more with FC. I'm thinking there was a specified time when they said testing would be finished and it would be added to one of the repos. Now, if you're even the least bit familiar with *nix, and really want it, you could just compile it, right? (or cheat and find a premade rpm) ;D

                        Heres Why I done it like that: So you could see it on windows vista and on Linux so for people who don't have vista or haven't seen it on vista.
