I am in the process of forcing
bbLean bbZero down Windows 7's thorat, but it's not going down easy.
I have run into a couple of problems, to which I hope some of you will have a solution.
OS: Windows 7 x64 SP1
Visual style: Windows 7 basic (no aero)
bbLean 1.17.1 bbZero 1.18 rc6
Firefox: 40.0.2 (latest)
Here sou can see an example of an unskinned window. This is a general problem, tool windows that don't have min/max/close button in the titlebar get ignored by bbLeanSkin.
Another problematic window type, some sort of variation of the tool window. You can see, the titlebar hanging out from underneath the BB titlebar, and the frame borders aren't skinned at all (but curiously large).

When using Windows 7's window snapping (left/right, top/bottom), strange margins appear around windows, and they don't occupy all of the desktop.
Partially fixed, now the margin is narrower, but still there. See updated pic.

Maximized windows have top borders, but no side borders. Still present.
Volume up/down hotkeys don't work. It's a combo: FN + F11/F12, but works flawlessly with explorer as shell. Every other media combo works (e.g. screen brightness is FN + F5/F6), but the volume up/down. Still present.
Firefox maximize/restore doesn't work as expected. Maximizing works, but pressing restore makes the window flicker once and the window stays maximized. I can only grab the window border and resize it. This is only Firefox, didn't notice this kind of behavior with other apps.
I would _really_ like to use the edge flipping plugin (listed on xoblite.net), but it complains something about an entrypoint not found in msvcrt.dll. I have installed every version of Microsoft VC++ redist package known to man (2005, 2008, 2010, 2013), but the error persists. Still present.
There is no bbLeanBar in this build, there's only the vanilla blackbox "toolbar", which is dumb AF. For starters, it only displays the title of the current window and has zero config options. How do I get back the taskbar functionality?
My mistake, BlackboxBar.

This is new.
Blackbox related windows don't get decorated Update: not just BB related, e.g. Windows Media Player don't get skinned either.
