Description:

The form controls in linux version of firefox can be more beutiful.
They can be more friendly too.

* Focused input has black border.
* Reset button has red text - you will never click on it by accident
* Really large textareas
* hover effects on buttons, selects and checkboxes

There is only one downside - you will never see what styling webmaster put on his buttons :)


It is based on exellent Industrial Forms by Garret LeSage

1. Download Tarball
2. add files from tarball to /res directory in your firefox installation.
3. Add content of winter.css to forms.css ( cat winter.css >> forms.css )
4. restart Firefox.

Enjoy! :)

Its nice but it busts many things in the latest trunk build (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050912 Firefox/1.6a1)

Text on buttons in Firefox (buttons in Preferences window for example) are missing. The throbber is also MIA. Aside from that it works OK, but the bugs above make it unusable at this point.

The check/radio elements do not also display correctly, ending up with a awful looking mishmash of the current look and the clearlooks looks.

You've done a very good job, but I think you should add ' html|input[type="reset"] ' in the Buttons section of the platform-forms.css.

To avoid accidential clicking on Reset button I gave it red border. I think this button is useless and IMO better solution would be display:none

But you can add it to your userContent yourself if you want to.
