Apply fancy widgets to Firefox.

Overview

Firefoxy is an app that applies Philippe Wittenberg's fancy Firefox widgets via drag-and-drop. Just drag Firefox onto Firefoxy, and it will do its thing. Drag it on a second time to revert to the default widgets. Or just open the app and it will prompt you to locate Firefox.

What this app does: This app places a couple files inside the Firefox application that tell Firefox how to draw the widgets that you find on websites. These include text buttons ("Submit," "Cancel," etc.), text input fields, radio buttons, checkboxes, pull-down lists, etc. After using Firefoxy, your widgets should look like those in the image below.

What's new in Firefoxy

Version 1.5.4:
  • Fixed broken select menu highlight
  • Croatian localization (thanks, Goran S.!)

Awesome. This hack isn't too hard to apply without the app, but the app makes it that much more convenient. Thanks!

Excellent! What about future versions of Firefoxy? Is there any plan for developing? I'd like to see any newer version…

This also works well with Flock in addition to the official version of Firefox (just choose 1.5). It's amazing what a different psychological effect some more modern widgets have compared to the old Windows 95-style Mozilla ones.

For those of you who may be wondering, Firefoxy 1.5.4 works fine with FF2. Simply choose "1.5" when prompted.

NO, that is not true, shapeshifter changes the OS defaults, which firefox DOES NOT use. That is the whole point of this program, people don't like the ugly widgets that firefox have.

OK, I'll bite... I'm guessing you are a Firefox fanboy/fangirl and you just can't imagine anything cooler than your Firefox all pimped with Firefoxy. Right? So, you are making a post to demonstrate just how cooooooool your Firefox is as opposed to the ho-hum Safari browser which does not have a corresponding Firefoxy pimp-o-matic shizzizzle dizzle whizzle nizzle. Yawn. On yer bike.

Why would you want to replace the Safari widgets in the first place? The whole idea behind Firefoxy is to act as a replacement for the gimpy XUL widgets and make them more Mac-like. Safari already *has* native Mac widgets by default and therefore it doesn't need any tweaking.

There seems to be some sort of misconception that "native" widgets are some sort of holy grail. That is incorrect--widgets are meant to be a stylable element of webpages, and Safari's current implementation breaks this important basic functionality. In that respect, Firefox's widgets are superior.My understanding is that the bleeding-edge CVS builds of Safari do have stylable widgets, but obviously they are not available in an official release yet. When they become stylable, it is conceivable that Firefox widgets could be ported to Safari, but since there are so many Aqua zealots around, there may not be enough demand.

Firefox 1.5b1 installs as 1.4. Firefoxy asks whether to use 1.0 or 1.1. Not entirely satisfactory results with either. 1.5b1 update?

1.4 really means 1.5; they just want to make sure there is no confusion between the prerelease and the final release. 1.5 really means 1.1, since that's what they were originally going to call it. So the correct choice is 1.1. If you have problems with the widgets, please let me know via email: firefoxy at mac dot com.

No confusion? What? Seems like such a numbering system creates confusion.

I agree, it's a bit confusing. It does make a bit of sense when you consider extensions. If they call this 1.5, but then something changes extension-wise for the final release, then I guess there would be worse confusion for extension authors. I really don't know; you'd have to ask the developers what they were thinking.

"you'd have to ask the developers what they were thinking." It appears that they were thinking "let's institute some numbering system that makes sense to us and no one else". All too common with developers in general.

I hadn't updated Firefoxy since March. The widgets in v 1.4.4 look great! Makes a big difference for those of us who like Firefox but hate that Windoze look.

Is it just me or are form fields a little wacky in this release? See also http://www.supload.com/free/DeerParkScreenSnapz001.jpg/view/ I don't think the form fields were misaligned like this with previous Firefoxy releases.

I'm running the 8/29 Deer Park nightly and that problem occurs even without Firefoxy. It's either a bug or a problem with MacUpdate's code.
