Problems with Elastic Fox in FF4

 I was happy to know that Firefox team push new, 4-th version of FF which works faster and support HTML5 and many other great features. But unfortunately this release have one very small disadvantage - ElasticFox does not show background for pages. That's nothing wrong with FireFox itself, but because ElasticFox is used in my dayly job, and I already tweak ElasticFox earlier, I was decide fix this small quirck, which really annoys me.

Obiviously problem was easy to fix - you have to just add one line to the CSS which comes with ElasticFox and set non transparent background for the tag popup. That's all! :)

Short list of steps:

  1. Close FireFox.
  2. Open your FireFox profile, which is located in the %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\ folder.
  3. Navigate to extensions\{2204c510-88f3-11db-b606-0800200c9a66}\chrome subfolder inside your profile.
  4. Make a backup of your ec2ui.jar and rename ec2ui.jar to ec2ui.jar.zip
  5. Inside archive, extract ec2ui.jar.zip\skin\classic\ec2ui\ec2ui.css file and add line
    popup { background-color: white; border: 1px solid threedshadow; }

    to the end of CSS file.
  6. Pack modified file back to ec2ui.jar.zip
  7. Launch Firefox and check how ElasticFox looks like. :)
Hopefully this is helps.
