Themes Page Preview No Longer Working


(Spywriter007) #1

Hi All…

I am using Firefox 57.0.2 on a Windows 7 machine and I can no longer preview background themes since Mozilla updated the themes site.

In the past, you could hover over a theme with your mouse pointer and the theme would appear on your browser so you could see what it looked like before actually installing it.

Is there a way to get this feature back?

At the moment the only way to preview a theme with the new site is to go to a theme’s page then click on the blue ‘Tap to preview’ button.

But, if you want, you can go to the add-on homepage, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on ‘View classic desktop site’ which will let you use the old site design. Then you’ll be able to hover to preview a design again.

Oh… I see…

I like the old site design better… the new site design just adds unnecessary clicks!

I think that they are still tweaking things, so some aspects might return. But frankly, I prefer the old site design as well.
