Firefox - GTK Dark Theme Fix

Problem:

Using a dark KDE (or GTK native) color theme (e.g. zenburn) causes content in form input elements to be illegible. This known Firefox bug basically renders the browser unusable on many webpages, that do not come with custom CSS rules for their forms.

Solution:

Use the Stylish Firefox add-on to create a custom global rule no dark forms and buttons:

    input:not(.urlbar-input):not(.textbox-input) {
        -moz-appearance: none !important;
        background-color: white;
        color: black;
    }

    #downloads-indicator-counter {
        color: white;
    }

    textarea {
        -moz-appearance: none !important;
        background-color: white;
        color: black;
    }

    select {
        -moz-appearance: none !important;
        background-color: white;
        color: black;
    }

Succsesfully tested with Firefox version 31.

Surface Noise

Somebody was trying to tell me that CDs are better than vinyl because they don’t have any surface noise. I said, “Listen, mate, life has surface noise.” — John Peel in 2004

Discogs, Google & DuckDuckGo - Dark Themes

I prefer using a dark theme on my desktop. However, now most of the brighter styled web-sites look “alien” when opened in my browser. The solution is “re-theming” those sites using custom CSS styles. The Firefox (or Chrome) plug-in Stylish helps to manage such custom styles, and ten-thousands of styles are available on userstyles.org.

Examples:

Cubehelix as Default in ds9

I love Dave Green’s cubehelix color scheme for visualization of astronomical intensity datasets (e.g. images).

In fact, I love it so much, that I want it to be the default in SAOImage ds9. A little alias does the trick for me:

alias ds9='~/local/bin/ds9 -cmap file ~/local/lib/cubehelix00.ds9'

Here the file cubehelix00.ds9 must be obtained from this page.
