Link Alert Extension - Transparent Mouse Icons

When hovering over a "special link" (ie. a .EXE file), the Link Alert icon will be transparent, allowing you to see web content behind it.

Obviously, you must have the Firefox Add-on "Link Alert" installed (installer link below)

* Thanks to for introducing me into the realm of Transparency with userstyles's userstyles's cleanup

You can Customize the amount of transparency by editing the Opacity in the code (Closer to 0 is closer to invisible, whereas closer to 1 is closer to fully-visible - EXAMPLE: 0.5 is in the middle of opacity) Currently, the code has it at .8 see-thru (which means it is 20% transparent and 80% opaque)

This makes your Link Alerts easier to see behind, allowing you to view all the web page content without moving your mouse, blocking the text or images!

Applies to:
+ Hovering over any content type of link (https brings up a lock, .js extension shows a javascript icon, new window shows a window...)
+ Transparency on your mouse notification area for each link's fi
