Rainbowpicker 0.6 Disabled Options Color changer

Fail.It doesn't change page colors, but freezes/disables 'Options'-->'Content'->'Colors' functionality although it does replace the standard Firefox palette popup with an expanded palette. After going through the OKs nothing changes.I am on a Windows 7 PC using Firefox 4.0.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install Rainbowpicker 0.6
2.'Options'-->'Content'->'Colors' : expanded palette appears in place of standard pop up
3.Choose new background or text color. click appropriate OKs
Actual Results:  
No color change

Expected Results:  
change to chosen colors

It is possible to modify Firefox colors outside of the standard palette using Windows Advanced Appearance settings which demonstrates that Firefox does not forbid such modification. The add on purports to add that flexibility but disables the basic Options functionality instead demonstrating it is defective. If the add on is not compatible with Windows that should be stated clearly in the add ons page.

Toad would take a look at this user issue.

Thanks for pointing this out. Some changes between Firefox 3.6 and 4.0 (possibly 3.5 and 3.6) made color changes in preference dialogs not update correctly. Version 0.6.1 should fix this.

Version 6.1 works for me--I think this is fixed.
