Halloween Special: Spook Up Firefox with Personas

If you want to spook up your house this Halloween, you can just take your Halloween decorations out of storage, or go buy some if you don’t have any. If you want to spook up yourself this Halloween, you can go get a properly spooky Halloween costume from the shops (regular or online ones). If you want to spook up your Firefox browser, you can use Personas.

You can find a big selection of Personas on getpersonas.com. If you go to Gallery -> then Holiday (just click here), you will find a large selection of Halloween-themed Personas for your Firefox browser. If you’re on Firefox 3.6X, Personas are natively supported.

This means you can place your mouse cursor over a Persona and see how it will make your browser look. If you like the Persona, simply click the “Wear it” button. If you click the “Wear it” button and seconds later you realize your don’t like that Persona, there is an easy way out. The moment you get a Persona, Firefox displays a “A new theme has been installed” prompt – just like the ones you get when the browser blocks a popup. From the prompt you can click two buttons:

Undo – your previous Persona will be restored.
Manage themes – the Add-ons window will pop up; from it you can uninstall themes, personas, plugins, and extensions.

If you are not on Firefox 3.6, if you are on an earlier version, then you need to get the Personas add-on. You can get it from AMO (addons.mozilla.org) – just click here.
