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.
