I've had trouble with some foreground/background color issues with some
themes in FF 3, but I don't know if it's related to GTK or not. In
Firefox, I'm using a theme called "Gradient iCool". I'm running compiz
and emerald, and am using an emerald theme called "BlackMist".
Regardless of which of the themes I use in Emerald, I still have the
same issue - which is that the text at the bottom bar of the window is
white on light gray. This also is the case for some dialog boxes. I'm
on Hardy Heron.
I wish they'd add a "kfirefox" to the repos. I know you can determine
which GUI toolkit you are going to use at compile time, so I'm certain
they could put one together that uses QT. I remember doing that when I
compiled from source a few times when I was running Debian stable.
