Get Firefox ready for Christmas

Christmas is approaching fast and you can customize Firefox to match your spirit is many fun ways.

If you are really impatient and want to get even more, get Countdown Clock, a Firefox extension developed by Frederic Mercille that lets you set a target date and add a countdown clock to Firefox’s status bar. You can customize words to put before or after the actual remaining time and a message to display the big day.

Now it’s time to dress Firefox properly.

Tinseltown, is a Firefox theme, developed by Thomas McMahon, better known as TwisterMC that brings snow, Santa’s hat, lights, candy bars and everything Christmassy to Firefox user interface.

It hasn’t been reviewed in a year but works as good as the first day. Thomas is asking for feedback. So if you have an idea for making this theme even better, drop him a line.

X-mas is another Firefox Christmas theme, developed by browser1, that features cool Christmas lights for scroll bars and falling snow in the toolbars background. If you find the movement too distracting, you can get X-Mas Light with static snow.

And don’t forget Foxkeh:

Finally, grab this Firefox snow globe to make your own custom greeting e-card. I think it was made available on Spread Firefox on 2004, a few weeks after Firefox 1.0 release. Please let me know if you know the author to give proper credit.

      Because it’s about getting Firefox ready for Christmas. I found that out by reading the title, Get Firefox ready for Christmas.

    Andrew, I looked for but didn’t find anything. Neither I did for Kwanzaa. If you know of something please let me know and I’ll be pleased of posting about it.

    [...] Mozilla Links is what reminded me about all of this. They’ve also linked to some Firefox Christmas desktop backgrounds, though that’s a bit too much for me. Firefox is a browser, not my life! Right now my desktop background image is reserved for the Amazon Kindle. Some people movie stars or cars as their background images. I put up nerdy gadgets I want.
