I have installed Avant Window Navigator 0.4.1 in Ubuntu 12.10 (64 bit) and am pretty much satisfied with its looks. But one thing that is lacking is, it fails to differentiate the current or active window on the dock. Everything looks the same.

As shown in the screen-shot below, I use multiple profiles in firefox and open multiple instances of firefox and get confused between which window I am currently working with.

Is there any way to highlight the active window in awn?

I found a setting under awn theme customization called Active Rectangle which was exactly what I was looking for. After changing that setting to my need, I was able to see a rectangle on the active window icon. Below is the screen-shot. enter image description here
