I read on the LibreOffice here that said you could use Firefox Personas on LibreOffice 4.
Is this true, or did I mus-interpret this?

Oh wow! Go LibreOffice! They have now added support (in LibreOffice 4) to open Publisher and Visio files! Score one for Open Source! – RPi Awesomeness Mar 19 '13 at 17:06
most of them are ugly and useless in my opinion...for what it is worth. – TheXed Mar 19 '13 at 18:00
@Gui indeed, few have been designed with LibreOffice in mind, and probably the less flashy and the less eye-catching work better for LO (e.g., the 'ambiance' ones). – carnendil Mar 19 '13 at 19:37

You can, indeed, customize LibreOffice with Firefox 'personas'.

In LibreOffice, go to the menu Tools | Options. Under "LibreOffice", select Personalize (№ 1 in the image, below).

'Personas' LibreOffice settings

Click the button Select Persona (№ 2). A new dialog will open. Click the button Visit Firefox Personas (№ 3) or visit

Then you'll have to find a Firefox 'Persona' that you like and copy its URI address back in the LibreOffice dialog (№ 4).

Click "Accept" and you're done.
