firefox 1.5 themes not working

  infostarved 14:55 02 Dec 2005

Have been using Firefox since it first came out, no trouble switching themes, but this version will not apply themes,states restart firefox to use theme but the default theme continues, have checked that the themes are compatable with 1.5 any thoughts.

Hi Fruit Bat,

Hi once again,
Have checked my Java, have the latest version, went to Opera 9 (do not know if it is different)and no problem changing themes, when I had Firefox 7 everthing worked perfectly, I can use everthing in Firefox 1.5 except themes!! am very puzzled.

Try an alternative method of installing the themes.

Download the themes to your hard drive, then open Firefox (FF) & go to File>Open File, select the downloaded themes (one at a time) & click Open to install. Shutdown, then reopen FF & check to see if they're installed OK. G

Thanks for all your imput, a pity at the moment I cannot use the themes I want, am getting tired I am 63 years young but the body is old.
