Firefox (0.9.x-2.0+)

Designed for BeOS, works on all platforms.

When using this theme on BeOS or Zeta, your browser will look much nicer if you set the Display Resolution to 72dpi in the "Content" or "fonts" option panel. This value matches the OS's native resolution.

version 0.4.9 I've edited the install info to indicate support only of Firefox 2.0.* There are enough changes with Firefox 3.0 that it's difficult to maintain backward compatibility. Never fear! I'll start a new theme for Firefox 3 once we can build and use it on the Haiku OS (www.haiku-os.org) I'll continue to refine small parts of HaikuFox in the future, too. Many thanks to those who've supported and praised HaikuFox over the years!
