One suggester said: "Stratiform 1.1 by ~SpewBoy is a really great and intense way to customize Firefox 4 to the point where no one has gone before. Any Firefox 4 user should try this!"
It's a neatly made add-on that installs itself as a button that -once clicked- provides you with a host of different customization options.

Since I've become such a big fan of Stratiform, I thought I would give the latest version a bit of a review. First of all, I'm very impressed with the major changes. I love the new layout/UI; the animated background, the new Rubix-like colour options, and the overall design of the interface. I also love how you've laid everything out, which is definitely an improvement from the old layout; I like how you can change the colours all in one section, and also the curve radius. I also like the samples/previews for buttons and text fields much better. I'm also impressed with the new themes, I look forward to you developing/perfecting them.
Now I would like to offer some constructive criticism. Firstly, I'm not sure whether I'll be the only one to say this, but I find a strange optical illusion occurring on the Rubix and Soft7 button themes, making the back button appear smaller than the forward button. If the back buttons could be made slightly larger as to avoid this, it would be perfect. I also noticed that the Soft7 icon for the back button will not work on a theme with a large back button, which is disappointing. In addition, it would've been nice to see a subtle hover state for the Rubix buttons, or to have them look slightly less "tall". Furthermore, the Soft7 tabs also look very similar to the Strata40 tabs, it's quite hard to tell them apart, and would've been nice to see something more unique. Lastly, just to throw some ideas out to you; I think it would be nice to see an almost-clear text field, similar to the design of the default one, to match minimalistic set-ups, and maybe a black one too, to match dark colour schemes. Translucent and black status pop-ups to match would be great as well. I also look forward to seeing more Tab and Firefox Button themes. Overall, a job well done, and I thank both SpewBoy and SoapyHamHocks for putting in all the effort and hard work. :) I hope you two find this critique useful.

Just started using Firefox 29 [Portable]: what a disappointing redesign of the interface! Don't where to start, but without a vertical column of Bookmarks that displays and functions as in immediately prior versions, no possible way for me to use it.

Haven't attempted 'Classic Theme Restorer' but specs indicate it returns lost functionality.

Curve form of the new tabs is interestingly 'baroque' but belongs in a design museum; to my eye completely outclassed by 'crispness' of Chrome. How sad … Looks like Firefox is becoming the Windows 8.1 of browsers, with fewer security flaws one may hope.

Hope the new Stratiform can rectify some of these new shortcomings — depending on you!

That's the plan :) Firefox 29.0 should have a sidebar toggle dropdown toolbar button and the keyboard shortcuts should still work (Ctrl/Cmd + B for bookmarks sidebar). If not, I know this functionality is in Aurora (30.0). I know the tabs are still rather different but once we finish Stratiform 4.0 that shouldn't be a huge problem.

Excellent! Thanks so much for the 'Ctrl + B' shortcut to display the old vertical column of bookmarks. I tried goggling this function, but you nailed it. At least I can experiment at a serious level now with 29.

All good wishes ~ HPG

Alright then: RTFM! Just discovered 'Keyboard Shortcuts' in Help … live and learn.

Stratiform 3.0 in my Firefox 28 has become corrupted. Settings can no longer be edited. Uninstalling and reinstalling the Add-on does not resolve the problem.

What do I need to delete to wipe the slate clean?

Many thanks!

There should be a reset button in Stratiform's options. Alternatively you can open up about:config and search "stratiform" and just reset any results that show up to remove all preferences.

Note that Firefox 28 isn't very compatible with Stratiform and we are working on some alpha builds to resolve the problem (check my journal entries). The next version is a complete reqrite which takes a whole new approach to styling your browser so it is taking a while to develop.

Thank you so much for the prompt reply and guidance. Some other update to this installation of Firefox must have blown Stratiform apart because Reset failed and subsequently, after attempting to configure settings that did not take effect, 'about:Config' displayed no Stratiform entries at all.

So I wiped this old installation and reinstalled anew with 17 Add-ons.

It all took some time but the reward is that Stratiform works again AND Firefox loads in a fraction of the time.

All good wishes!
