Personas

An extension to the FireFox Web browser that adds custom and personalized themes to the browser. There are two main types of Personas, standard and dynamic.

  • Standard Personas consist of two image files: a header image that is displayed as the background at the top of the browser window behind the toolbars and tabs, and a footer image that is displayed as the background at the bottom of the browser window where the status bar is located.
  • Dynamic Personas are also composed of two files (a header and footer). However, they can be of any file format that Firefox can display, including JaveScript and HTML. These Personas can be changed and Firefox will periodically update the content.
