Why do my animated themes only work the first time I open the window? Every one that I have tried stops animating if I close the window and open a new one.

The headline pretty much sums up my problem. Basically, I picked a few different animated themes to try out in the Add-Ons section to personalize my browser window. They look great initially, and in the window that is open when I actually enable the theme. However, if I close that window and open a new one, the theme is stationary and no longer animates.

Sorry......I was just too impulsive. ( Maybe because it was 4 AM at Taiwan, and I was still trying to solve the problem= = )

Although to install the add-on "Personas Shuffler" can solve the problem to me, I don't think it was the BEST solution. This evening, I read why the add-on "Personas Shuffler" was made, and found that the BEST solution is:

1. Open a new tab, and type "about:config" at the URL bar, then search for "lightweightthemes" with the filter.

2. Change the values of "lightweightThemes.persisted.footerURL" and "lightweightThemes.persisted.headerURL" from true to false( by double click on them).

3. After doing so, restart Firefox and you will see it works! You don't have to install any add-on.
