Does anyone know of firefox themes which are usuable when gnome has a black theme? I find that none of the borders are visible, and that often times text for certain context menues are completely ruined when I use even the standard theme (which one would think to be tested on a dark theme).

You have to install Sylish for firefox and then, head to this Howto on Firefox 3 and dark themes. You can find the whole howto AND the rest of the steps on the second link. If that fails, just do a search on the FIRST link for 'gtk'. Hope this helps.

Hm, this certainly helps what is rendered inside the browser, thanks. – Zombies Feb 26 '10 at 14:35

There's a great dark theme for Firefox called Dust. It was actually designed to match the Ubuntu Dust theme, so if you use both, integration is flawless.

You can try out either/both here:

Yes I definetly need a theme that works. Some of the theme, (even the default) just look so wrong if my theme is pure black. – Zombies Feb 26 '10 at 14:35
