The real good think about "personas" is the ability to change the look of the "white space" or colored areas that are part of the menu bar areas of your Firefox browser and now LO 4.0.0. You can even find ones that have animated images shown there.

I tend to use green color schemes on both my Linux and Windows systems. The trouble is that it is hard to adjust all these "window" border and display options. With FF's personas, you just choose the design you want and try it. If you do not like it, you just click on another one. You can very easily switch back and forth between personas as your whim dictates.

Attached to your copy of this email is a screen clip of my desktop.
I like the green background of the closeup of a wood-elf, since I love "green". But you will see the top and bottom parts of the Firefox "window" are green tone as well. The FF green tone is from personas. I also have winter graphics as well as spring and quite animated graphics I could switch to.

FF has over 100,000 personas in their listing. If you are adventurous, you can create your own personas. I hope people associated with TDF will create their own personas to be used for both LO and FF. That way we could have LO themed ones, other than the 7 already in the FF list.

Go to firefox's personas page:-

find the persona you like ( light coloured ones seem to look nicer )

copy the url for example

Go to Libreoffice
Click select Persona
Paste the link into the box

Libreoffice now has a pretty tool bar

Subject: [libreoffice-users] 4.0.0's use of personas

Hi :)
   The marketing list keep going on about using "personas" in LibreOffice 4.0.0 but i'm embarrased 
to admit i have no idea what they are talking about nor how to use them.
Does anyone here know how to use "personas"? Does one create them in LibreOffice or import them from elsewhere? Regards from
   Tom :)
