Description:

This is a replacement for the default form widgets in Firefox. It's not dependent upon KDE, but I styled it with KDE in mind. The CSS is modified from the default one. I created all but the radio and checkbox images, which were created by the Pretty Widgets for OS X (readme included).

Update: There are now two different versions depending on your button preferences. The rest of the widgets are the same. The old one is now called "Full Style". The buttons in Full Style can be completely styled by the website's CSS.

The new version is "Partial Style". The buttons in Partial Style can be styled with exception of the border color. In return you get roundeded and better colored borders.

To install, download download the tar for the version you want. If you haven't changed your form widgets before, make sure to backup the default:
sudo cp -r /usr/lib/firefox/res/ /usr/lib/firefox/res_original

Then install:
tar -xvzf KDEwidgets.tar.gz
sudo mv ./KDEwidgets/* /usr/lib/firefox/res/

I found that in KDE 4 under Kubuntu I had to place the files in the following folder:

/usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.0.3/res

Give that a try.

On topic:

Nice idea, the checkboxes where bugging me quite a bit with their default style.. unfortunatly you didn't fix those.. I'll have a bit of playing around myself tho :)

A little add on to firefox that makes big difference. Original radio buttons are really ugly.

Thanks.

I'm using the "full style" buttons, which are very nice, thanks! However, I did notice that on many sites (including Google), when the button is in the pressed state (mouse down on it), the button height seems to increase by 1 pixel - the bottom border moves down by 1 pixel. It still looks much nicer than the default, though!

I think I solved it. I changed the margins and padding in the hover section for buttons in the forms.css

find the "button:active:hover" section and change padding to 2px 8px 2px 8px and margin-bottom to 0px. I don't know if it will break anything, but my form buttons don't shift anymore.

Hi, I installed this as per your instructions, but it doesn't seem to work for me in webpages. You can see from my screenshot below that it appears to work in the Preferences dialogue in Firefox, but not in the webpages themselves (circled in red). Is there something I haven't done?

Which distribution are you using?

You just want to place the files in the Firefox config folder. Try searching for forms.css: "locate forms.css | grep firefox". The folder should be named "res". You must be root to copy the files though.

Thanks, Hedge. Sorry, I should have said, I'm on Kubuntu 7.10. I did search for the res folder. Found it in /usr/lib/firefox/res and /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/res. Replaced the files in both but still no luck. I'll try and sort it later when I'm back on my linux box.

Hedge, I just wanted to let you know I got this working at last - on Kubuntu I had to place the files in /opt/firefox/res - now everything looks great! Thanks :-)

Your contribution really rocks! Thank you very much for sharing it with us.

I've tried different stylish-styles (stylish is a firefox extension), but never got such nice looking forms.
