    WTF? Why is my firefox saying that I can't install the add-on? Something about failure in 'chrome registration' or something....

    Make sure that you are running Firefox with the latest patch. I know that they rolled out a new patch a week or two ago. Also, what other add-on's do you have currently installed? Both enabled and disabled? And is this the first time you have had this problem?

    after my old computer crashed I never bothered to re-find the add-ons I had, ergo, I have none. Also, firefox claimed that it's up to date...

    Firefox V.2.0.0.8?

    Have you tried uninstalling the plug-in that you got? I honestly do not know much about the "chrome reg." If worst comes to worse, you my have to uninstall/reinstall Firefox itself. Try posting this problem in the Support forum. More people might be able to help you there. Sorry I didn't provide much help.

    If you have large text, and the story you read has large paragraphs, you may also want to try increasing the line-height to something like 1.4em.

    Just click the Stylish icon on the bottom right, Manage Styles..., double click FF.net style, above the final }, just add and save:

    Code:
    #storytext {
        line-height: 1.4em !important;
    }
    Great job on the colors, Jon.

    Wow, what a small world this is. If I knew someone would use that poor excuse for code to build something, I would have tried to clean it up at least a tiny bit. Sorry about that to whoever had to clean up for me. Small note though, you may want to re-merge some of the newer recolor components from my style. It seems your current style does not cover several user management page elements and leaves the majority of forum elements white.

    Anyway, you guys should definitely think of posting the result on the userstyles site. If the style is on there, whenever you make up update you need only direct your users to manage styles, then find updates. This makes life a whole lot easier as a whole.

    Jon's latest seems to work. All the rest need revamping though.
    Also,I knew I had seen your name somewhere before. :p

    That's where you're from. I knew that your name was familiar, I just didn't know from where. Props for the style dude, changed my fanfiction life. :p

    Jon knows about those white things. I told him about it awhile ago, yet when he tried, they wouldn't go away.

    Anyway, I'm just wondering if anyone is having trouble with the "Home Just In Communities Forums Dictionary Search" bar at the top. Mine has turned white and isn't turning back. You might have to alter the code, unless it's just me...

    I had that, too. Add
    Code:
    .xxmenu {
    background-color: #000 !important;
    }
    At the bottom just above the /* end recolor */
    It worked for me

    The DLP style is awesome; great work, Jon.

    I do have one problem, though. I installed Firefox 3 Beta - in turn fixing a completely different problem - and set this up. The problem is, the buttons for next chapter, review, etc. are white with a light green text; seeing it is kind of uncomfortable. Any info on what to change to fix this?

    If you would like to help out me, Jon, or anyone else working on alternate styles there is actually something you can do to make life easier.

    First you'll need to download and install the firebug extension for Firefox. You can get it here.

    Next refer to this image.

    First browse to the page with the problem. Click on the fiebug icon labeled 1 in the image. If necessary enable the extension when it asks you. Next click the inspect button labeled 2. Now move your mouse over the miscolored item and click. To make your life easier there will be a blue square around the selected element, as seen in 3. Now post the attributes you see in the window labeled 4. For the above example the attribute you would want to post is "input." If the background-color for your attribute is not there, or crossed out you may need to scroll down to find the first attribute with that option that is not crossed out. To make life even easier you can just take a screen shot and post it for all to see.

    If you are feeling adventurous you may click on the color given by the 6 digit number, "#777777" above, and play around with it to see how it would look.

    This would be particularly useful in tracking down some rare error cases that you may get from running the beta and whatnot.

    ...Now this is just strange. I went to FF.Net to open Firebug ala your instructions, and noticed that the chapter/review/etc. buttons were Black and Green, much like they should be. Whatever the problem was, it was a temporary one; that is, it fixed itself, so to speak.

    Sorry for wasting your time...

    Thanks CGB. I only just remembered to check this thread and see if anything had been posted. About time I fixed that bloody bar.

    Once again, thank you.

    Ok I downloaded firebug, but your next link isn't working and I have no clue what to do next to be working.

    I am very, very, sorry about the necro.

    I'm having the same problem, except nothing I do (intentional or unintentional) seems to fix it.

    I'd like to think I'm fairly competent with CSS, but this is serving to prove me wrong. Does anyone have any ideas? I can post screenshots if need be.

    Also, on a some-what similar topic, does anyone have a DLP style for PatronusCharm? I've got a basic (read: horrifying) one that allows me to be able to read the stories, but I've got lots of things that are still white. It is almost as disgusting as Ginny. Almost.
