What about installing the possibility to have "rolling", interchanging themes ?

Hi,

Here's some feedback.

I noticed that there's something missing. Well,... If you were to manage to handle it, you may be THE FIRST ONES TO HAVE IT IN YOUR BROWSER !

What i am talking about is a "rolling" theme. With which I mean a continuously changing theme, as follows.

An example would be that a user could be able to e.g. chose 5 (or more) different themes and that these would roll at the top of the browser, with a preset time of x seconds or x minutes, either to be determined by the user or by Mozilla. Here I believe it will all depend on the type of software you will be able to build and of the security for the browser, no ?

Out of experience, I know that this technology exists, having been a webmaster and having built and serviced 5 websites on different subjects. In order to recuperate some of the money I spend on the costs of the webspace, programs, etc, I added quite a few, but not too much, publicity banners on these websites. The banners led either to click-through, buys, etc. and herewith I earned a certain amount, not enough to get all of the money back, but that was never my purpose.

Now, if I remember well, these banners were made in Javascript or Java. If someone with you knows either which language, then my proposal could be of effect very soon.

Lots of success and many thanks for your help !

Animated and dynamic themes were possible previously. I distinctly remember having a Christmas countdown theme installed on Firefox many years ago. A remember there was also a day/night cycle theme as well that I used for a while. There were a few others that displayed a clock them as well.

The technology is certainly possible. However, when Firefox was changed to remove support for legacy extensions, that functionality disappeared as well. It was a security and performance improvement.

Thanks for the speedy reply Wesley ! I'll keep your mail in my inbox for if ever I have another idea.

But, before, I would like to know what legacy extensions are and what there purpose is.

But then still remains another question. Wouldn't it be a lot simpler to reinstall this former extension? Considering that now there are lots of splendid anti-virus and other safety programs around, some even for free !

I mean, the security leak should be resolved now, shouldn't it ? If not, then it I find IT WOULD BE HIGH TIME IT WAS, don't you think so too Wesley ?

I really would find it a pity if nobody would see the advantage in such type of Theme. As mentioned before, YOU WOULD BE FIRST TO HAVE SUCH TYPE OF THEME !!! THINK ABOUT IT  !!

Bye, Kurt

In Firefox 57, Firefox permanently changed over to the new webextensions framework. This new framework gave addons less permissions over the Firefox browser and greatly increased the performance of addons in Firefox.

Anything not created using this new webextensions framework was classified as "legacy" and stopped working in Firefox. These were also removed from the addon website since they couldn't be downloaded anymore.

Unfortunately, webextensions don't allow developers to have the same control over Firefox as they used to, since those permissions were often exploited by malicious addons in the past. Firefox was restricted to static image themes only as consequence.

For more information about legacy addons, please refer to:
