When i install any of the animated appearance add-ons when i close the browser and reopen again it'll not be moving anymore.Help please.

Previously when i install this exact same animated lighting overload add-ons some time ago,it have been working fine then i change the appearance to something else which is not animated and after some time i change to another animated APNG-Sasuke Uchiha 2 add-ons and found out this problem so i thought is only this add-on problem and decided to try out lighting overload add-ons again to see whether it's moving or have the same problem but it have the same problem then it must not be the add-ons problem anymore.

hello Conson, firefox isn't supporting animated (formerly called "persona") themes any more for performance reasons - as a workaround you can install the following addon with one persona theme installed: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/personas-shuffler

Is this - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/ - what you are talking about? Formerly called Personas and now known as "Themes" as opposed to Full Themes.

I encountered this problem.

The shuffler has no effect until you restart Firefox, so it doesn't help me (i rarely close my browser). It's faster and more convenient for me to simply open add-on screen, then deactivate/reactivate Lightning Overload.

If you restart Firefox often, then the plugin is probably enough.

Personas Shuffler is a NoRestart add-on, which means it installs completely without needing the user to restart Firefox. Whatever "problem" you are referring to isn't the same as the OP was talking about. Bottom line is that the Firefox developers decided to no longer support animated themes and they removed that feature from Firefox; the Personas Shuffler add-on "adds" that feature back into Firefox 18.0-plus versions.

The "trick" is to install only one theme (or Persona, using the older terminology) to allow the theme to be animated, and not use the "shuffle" feature.

" The shuffler has no effect until you restart Firefox "

Sorry for the confusion, i meant that it will only change theme when you restart the browser.
