Here's the Greasemonkey script to correct the white text on html form buttons on sites such as Gmail, Google Calendar, del.icio.us, etc.


It should work on any sites that insert html via javascript, i.e., any sites that don't respond to the userContent.css mod listed below.

The script corrects Gmail, Google Calendar and del.icio.us out of the box -- for other sites, just add them to the Included Pages list within Greasemonkey.

PhotoPro is the antithesis of UI chrome -- you only see it when you need it. Very easy on the eyes, yet very strong with its sharp, squared edges.

I'm with Philsh here, in that PhotoPro is the best dark theme. All others tend to clash with the environment like a poorly matched outfit. This is the first dark skin that I can keep installed. It feels native.

Minor issues:

1) Firefox doesn't use Cocoa-style buttons, but for some reason inherits the text color. This leads to white text on gray buttons that's almost unintelligible. This can be fixed by adding the following line to userContent.css:

input{ color: #333; }

This doesn't fix the color on buttons added via javascript, for sites such as gmail, del.icio.us, and others. I created a greasemonkey script that takes care of this, and will post a link here for when I find a place to host it.

I don't think this is something Palli Svansson can fix, since it's more of a Firefox-Cocoa issue.

2) The slider is missing from the built-in OSX color picker, used for various programs such as Adobe Fireworks 8, and many other programs for selecting foreground and background colors.

Despite these two issues, one of which I was able to correct, PhotoPro has become an indispensable part of my OSX environment. Thanks Palli!
