Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

Again, thank you for all of the hard work you all do to keep TenFourFox advancing. Thank you.

As you probably know, Mozilla just recently updated its themes engine, which no longer supports any version of FireFox under v. 53. Tis includes compatible like TenFourFox. I seem to remember someone posting a link to a collection of pre-FireFox 53 themes somewhere on tis website, but I can't find the link. Does anyone know what the link is?

Thank you all so very much.

    There are archives for legacy extensions, but – so far – non for themes, at least I'm not aware of any.

    Also see this post:

    If you find a way to edit the .xpi theme file to allow for versions <53 please share, I'd be interested in that, too.

    Thank you Chris. That was very kind of you. It's just as well I suppose. I noticed that I can never load any of the old themes unless I have an Internet connection. Maybe they're phoning home. Take care.

    The images used by Themes (Personas) are stored on Mozilla servers. As long as they're still there, the Theme will continue to work in TFF.
