Firefox on KDE4: ugly and will stay ugly (with screenshot)

You're not alone concerning Gimp UI, I fear ... I once read somebody who
was using a virtual desktop for managing gimp windows (i.e : gimp on
desktop 2, and *alone*) - I think it's the best advice I've seen so far
concerning this s****d way of handling windows up to now :]
Gimp "deweirdifier" is not so stable...

And back to FF : I feel it is as ugly on KDE3, it's not because it's run
in KDE4 that it changes a lot... I was even surprised to see that the
default theme in windows looks... different. I'm wondering why default
theme is different depending on the platform.
