After updating to Firefox 18, animated themes will no longer animate. Here's a simple workaround to fix that.

Note: This article doesn't apply to your version of Firefox.

Install the Personas Shuffler add-on to restore animated theme

  1. Go to the Personas Shuffler add-on page.
  2. Click the green Add to Firefox button and a software installation window will open.
  3. After the 3 second countdown, click Install Now.
    • The Personas Shuffler add-on will be installed and your animated theme should be animated again.

If you have more than one theme installed, this add-on will activate a new one each time you start Firefox. To switch themes, follow these steps:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and choose Add-ons. The Add-ons Manager tab will open.

  2. In the Add-ons Manager tab, select the Appearance panel.
  3. Click the Enable button next to the theme you want to use.
