Make KDE feel like home for the Firefox

Yes, pretty much anybody using KDE probably agrees that Firefox sticks out inside the K desktop like a drop of milk on black coffee. It is a superb browser and the quick development pace Mozilla has adopted is only making it better in a much faster fashion, but looks are also very important, aren't they?

How about making Firefox look like a native KDE app? Check out the screenshot below!

Alright, if you want to achieve the same results, it is actually quite simple. The screenshot above shows Firefox 7 using Oxygen KDE 3.5.1, which you can download from HERE. Once the .xpi file is downloaded, drag and drop it to Firefox Add-ons manager screen and it will get installed. A restart of the application is then required for the new theme to become active.

Thanks to KDE BLOG for sharing this!

  2. Thank you for the link, now Firefox looks like the rest of KDE instead of a Windows NT application.

  3. Thanks much! KDE 4.7 even with oxygen-gtk makes it look NOTHING like my Qt apps.
