Thanks but I already know about that and have tried "Use KDE style"
and several of the QT styles but it looks like when i use a dark KDE
style the input boxes in firefox is always the dark KDE background no
matter what QT style i use. I will try some more could be that i
forgot to restart the GTK apps.

Another thing but I'm not sure if its related is that the radio and
check boxes is partly overlapped by text and other elements in the web
pages and that.
