Add lightweight theming to your browser using 'Personas for Firefox

image Personas for Firefox is a extension that adds lightweight theming to your browser.

Personas is a prototype that builds upon the ideas that:

  • Themes today are too hard to find, install and use
  • Graphic designers should be able to style the browser without having to code
  • Browsers can be more than just desktop software, they can include online components
  • People just want their computer to be a little more fun and personal

In this version, the Persona selector is dynamically loaded and populated from a JSON feed and all designs are loaded via URLs to remote resources. All changes to the browser chrome are applied instantly, with no need to restart.


API will be released shortly that will allow developers and designers to submit Personas that are based on Web content, including support for anything that can load in a content window such as HTML, CSS, PNG, JPG, Javascript, SVG and Canvas.


  • You can select a Persona from the dynamic menus and see results instantly without having to discover, select, download or install a separate bit of software or code.
  • Personas can be added, removed or updated by their designers at any time, without requiring a software update.

How to do ?

3 easy steps to change the look and feel of your browser to match your mood!

  1. Click the little Fox mask image in the lower-left corner of your Firefox. (It will appear once you install it)
  2. Select your first Persona from the list.
