oh wow kris i love this :dummy:
~yes a new VS! :la:~ this is yet another lovely little style- so smooth & sexy & always subtle-you have definitely become my favorite visual style designer- every time you release a new one it is exquisitely perfect- i think ive told you this before, (perhaps more than once :meow: ) but your designs just have this certain delicate quality that i love- you have an acute awareness, and brilliant sense of, classic simplicity & beauty.

:+fav:Another fav kris:tighthug:

Unfortunately, I have a bug to report. :(

When a standard window is maximized, the title bar shifts up a few pixels, leaving a white line in between the title bar and the menu bar.

On Firefox, this is a bad thing because if a dark Firefox theme is applied, the white line looks horribly out of place.

I hope it wouldn't be to much of a deal to fix that...never mind if it is. :blushes:

You neeeeed to make a matching Firefox theme for this VS, it's beautiful and I love it! but it makes my firefox all messed up lookin'.

Also, Is there a way to change the font color in the start menu? It's all invisible unless you hover over it.
